Cedar Rapids Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
The Iowa workers’ compensation program is intended to be a safety net for workers. If a person is injured on the job, he or she should be able to cover medical bills and take the necessary time off work to recover. This program also saves time and money for employers, as they do not need to defend themselves in repeated lawsuits filed by workers. Sounds like a great deal, right?
Unfortunately, the workers’ compensation program does not always work ideally. It can take a long time for an application to make its way through the state’s backlog and finally be addressed. Even when an injured worker finally receives payment, it may not be enough to cover medical expenses. Fixing this often requires a lengthy and complex appeals process.
