Filing A Workers’ Compensation Claim In Iowa
If you have been injured on the job, it is extremely important to act decisively and follow the correct procedure if you plan to file a workers’ compensation claim.
First and foremost, you must report an injury within 90 days of the accident. You have a two-year statute to file a claim unless you have been paid (permanent, partial, temporary or total disability) benefits. If you have been paid benefits, the statute begins running from that point forward and is three years. How much you are to be compensated depends on the extent of an injury and your pay at the time you were injured.

There are several other steps in the process, including seeking medical treatment and opinion.
If you or a loved one has been injured on the job and is considering filing a claim, partnering with an attorney is almost always the ideal move. Insurance companies are focused on limiting payouts. Failure to ideally address all requirements may result in delay or even outright denial of benefits.
