Why Do I Need A Lawyer?

We Will Advocate For You

When it comes to the workers’ compensation system, injured workers and their employers have very different objectives. Injured individuals are focused on maximizing their compensation to ensure they get the quality medical care, wage replacement and disability benefits they deserve. Employers, on the other hand, are generally focused on saving money by minimizing their employees’ benefits.

If you have suffered a work injury or an occupational illness, it is important to discuss your situation with an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer who can help you understand your rights and options. Your attorney is obligated by law to look out for your best interests – your employer is not.

30 Years Of Experience On Your Side

The workers’ compensation system is one of the most complex areas of the law. The rules, regulations and deadlines are abundant – and strict. It is crucial to work with a qualified attorney who understands the nuances of the system and is able to use this knowledge to your advantage.

At Jeff Carter Law Offices, P.C., we can help you file a claim with the Iowa Industrial Commission to ensure you receive temporary benefits as soon as possible and that your permanent disability rating accurately reflects your situation. We can also help you appeal a wrongful claim denial, challenge information contained in medical reports, negotiate with insurance companies, and fight to protect your rights in court. With an experienced attorney by your side, you will be treated differently throughout the entire process.
