What Are My Rights If I Have Been Injured In A Workplace Accident?

Under Iowa law, when you’re injured and your injury occurs in the course of your employment and arises out of your employment, you’re entitled to three basic benefits. One is your employer and insurance carrier pays for your reasonable and necessary medical care. The second benefit that you’re entitled to be if you’re off work because of that injury, you receive weekly workers’ compensation benefits, and those benefits are paid at about eighty percent of your take-home pay. The final benefit that you get is, down the road, if you have a workplace injury that causes permanent disability you can be entitled to permanency benefits. They’re based on the type of injury you have, whether it’s a scheduled injury to your arms or legs, or if it’s a body as a whole injury to your back, neck, head, or brain,
