Whatever the severity of their injuries, workers who have suffered injuries worry about obtaining medical care, paying their bills and supporting their families. If you have suffered a job-related injury or illness, you deserve to understand your rights.

Injured workers do have options. At Tyler & Associates, PC, in Bettendorf, Iowa, Attorney Leanne Tyler assists clients with the application, hearing and appeal processes of workers’ compensation.
