Des Moines Short-Term Disability Claim Lawyer
Assistance with Filing Short-Term Disability Claims in Iowa
Sustaining a workplace injury is often a serious and debilitating event that can leave you unable to work for a lengthy period. Workplace injuries are relatively common when an individual is working in a high-risk industry, such as construction. However, while it is more common to sustain an injury in a labor-intensive occupation, an accident in the workplace can happen in any kind of environment. Fortunately, if your employer has a short-term disability insurance policy in place, you may be compensated for your time away from work when you are temporarily too injured to earn a livable wage.

What You Need to Know About Short-Term Disability Benefits
If your employer offers workers’ compensation insurance and you are an eligible employee, you are entitled to receive short-term disability benefits if you are injured on the job or while carrying out any duties related to your employment. This includes medical benefits and wage replacement benefits.
Short-term disability benefits are an additional type of benefit offered by some Iowa employers. They are different than Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, which are provided by the federal government to eligible workers.
Short-term disability benefits pay up to a certain percentage of your average/base pay. The specific policy in question will dictate this percentage and how much you can expect to receive. Our attorneys at LaMarca Law Group, P.C. can help you understand your legal rights and work to recover all of the available benefits you are entitled to receive.
