Avoid Workers Comp Mistakes

Injured On-The-Job?: A Guide to Understanding Workers’ Compensation in Iowa

No matter where you work, there are likely risks that you face every day. Even if you take the proper precautions to avoid these risks, accidents do happen and can result in serious injuries. Work-related injuries often require medical treatment and rehabilitation, which are both time-consuming and expensive. Additionally, most injuries will require you to take time away from work in order to recover, which can add financial strain due to the loss of your income. Workers’ compensation is intended to assist you and your loved ones if you have been injured at work; however, it is often difficult to navigate this complex system and receive the benefits that you need.

Fortunately, this guide to Iowa’s workers’ compensation can help you learn the basics you need. The LaMarca Law Group attorney Gary G. Mattson saw a need for better workers’ comp information and sought to provide it, with this easy to use guide. Not only does the book offer information about the steps you need to take, but it also covers frequently asked questions about receiving your benefits.

Common Errors Regarding Workers’ Comp

Without the appropriate information about workers’ comp protocol, it is easy to make mistakes that could prevent you from receiving benefits. When you have been injured, the last thing you want to do is search for in-depth information about workers’ compensation. For your convenience, then, Mattson’s guide provides 14 steps to take after your injury, in order to lower your chance of a costly mistake. Some of the more common errors include:

  • Forgetting to document and photograph your injury
  • Neglecting to keep track of all doctor visits and recommendations
  • Getting medical treatment without authorization for your employer
  • Quitting your job after an injury
  • Accepting delayed benefits

Any of these errors can make it more difficult or impossible to receive the appropriate workers’ compensation benefits. Additionally, insurance providers may delay or deny benefits for a valid injury. This often occurs because insurance companies make a greater profit when they accept fewer claims. Such behavior is unacceptable, and you should not give up.
