Workers’ Compensation Basics

If you are injured while on the job or while performing work-related activities, you may be eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits. Workers’ compensation can help to cover costly expenses such as medical bills, lost income from time off of work, and other economic losses or health-related costs.

Workers’ compensation is essentially a type of insurance that compensates injured employees. To qualify for payment, however, a worker must agree to certain legal terms and conditions. To discuss your legal rights with an experienced Iowa workers’ compensation attorney, contact the law offices of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., today by calling (515) 705-0233.

Receiving Workers’ Comp

Many employers are insured with workers’ compensation in order to reduce their liability in case of an accident. When an employee is injured on the job, he or she can opt to give up the right to sue the employer for negligence in exchange for workers’ compensation benefits. This means that once a worker agrees to accept workers’ compensation benefits, he or she may not file a lawsuit against the company for his or her injury-related costs.

An employee may be able to negotiate the terms of his or her workers’ compensation with the employer. This agreement can be beneficial for both parties involved because the worker receives assured payments through the employer to cover accident-related costs, and the employer is protected from a costly lawsuit.

How We Can Help

Before entering into a workers’ compensation agreement with your employer, it is recommended that you first consult with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney. An attorney can help to ensure that you receive the full benefits that are legally available to you and can advise you on the course of action to take after your injury.
