Worker’s compensation in Iowa allows for an employee to be covered for lifetime care if the employer has accepted a claim as a work injury, or where the injured worker has received an award in his favor. Most employers are also required to purchase workers’ compensation liability insurance. However, there are a number of exemptions that may exempt employees and employers from workers’ compensation coverage. It is important to know your rights when considering worker’s compensation.
In addition to ongoing medical care, if you have a permanent injury, you are entitled to a lump sum award for that impairment. Insurance companies are not generous, and you need a qualified attorney to aggressively advocate for full compensation for your injury.
