Worker’s Compensation Lawyer
State laws require your employer or their insurance company to compensate you and your family for injuries or death that occur while you are working. As Bettendorf personal injury attorneys, we can help you if you become injured while working. You may be entitled to:
- Weekly benefits while you are temporarily totally disabled and unable to work.
- The payment of your medical expenses.
- Weekly payments or a lump sum payment for partial or total disability resulting from a work-related injury.
What Should I Do If I Am Injured?
Report the injury to your employer immediately. If you cannot reach an agreement with your employer or their insurance carrier concerning what benefits or medical expense payments you are entitled to, you can file your claim with the industrial commission of your state. The commission is usually the court system set up to deal with Worker’s Compensation claims.
