Do You Have Workplace Injuries?

When facing serious workplace injuries such as back injury, head and neck trauma, toxic exposure, burns or broken bones, securing guidance for your workers’ compensation claim is important. Without legal help, you could miss key benefits or accept a settlement that falls short of covering your medical expenses and lost wages.

In Iowa and Nebraska, workers’ compensation benefits include medical care for work-related injuries, partial wage replacement during recovery, and vocational rehabilitation if necessary. For those who cannot return to their previous work due to permanent impairments, there are benefits to compensate for lost earning potential. At Carter Law Offices, P.C., our team has experience fighting for these entitlements, especially in the face of an unfair claim denial. If you receive a claim denial, we can also assist you with appealing the decision. Our aim is to ensure our clients have the financial support they need during their recovery.
