Workers' Compensation

An on-the-job injury can change lives in an instant, leading to hospitalization, a lengthy recovery period, and the financial challenge of missing work while medical bills and other expenses roll in. Your recovery and your family's well-being can depend on whether you receive solid legal guidance about your options for recovering compensation.

Des Moines Workplace Injury Attorneys

The vast majority of job-site injury victims in Iowa can receive workers' compensation benefits — but, especially when injuries are severe or a fatal job accident has occurred, it is extremely important to consult an attorney who will explore other potential sources of compensation in your case.

While workers' compensation is a vitally important program, job injury victims sometimes have other, more valuable "third-party" liability claims.
