Postal workers in American face serious injury risks each day

The United States Postal Service (USPS) has expressed pride in its work ethic for decades. Unfortunately, such dedication to service can also come with job-related injury risks. After all, the USPS does not cancel its service for inclement weather or any other adverse event. This means postal workers in Iowa face injury risks every day in their efforts to make sure citizens always receive their mail.

What can you do about workers' compensation retaliation?

Suffering an injury on the job is challenging, but if an employer begins treating you differently after you file a workers' compensation claim, it makes the ordeal even worse. While workers' compensation exists for your benefit, employers typically want to prevent workers from filing these claims.

Uninsured drivers can leave you in a precarious position

If you have a license and a vehicle, you probably already know that Iowa law mandates that everyone who operates a vehicle has an active motor vehicle liability insurance policy. However, just like with other rules intended to make the roads safer, not everyone abides by the state law mandating liability insurance.

Types of workers' compensation benefits for injured Iowa workers

Injuries suffered in a workplace accident can be detrimental to your continued health, but they also endanger your finances. The workers' compensation system exists to help injured workers offset the financial costs associated with workplace injuries. For example, through workers' compensation, victims can access the medical care they need without worrying about its cost.
