Des Moines Workers' Compensation Lawyers

Our workers' compensation practice is dedicated to helping injured workers throughout Iowa recover the maximum workers' compensation benefits to which they are entitled under the law. We also assist employers and small businesses involved in workers' compensation disputes.

Iowa's workers' compensation laws are designed to provide certain benefits to employees who sustain injury, occupational disease, or occupational hearing loss as a result of their job duties. Common issues in workers' compensation include:

  • Claims for temporary and permanent disability benefits
  • Alternate medical care
  • Travel and medical care reimbursement
  • Coordination of workers' compensation, Social Security, and employer-sponsored disability plans
  • Vocational rehabilitation
  • Death claims

When disputes cannot be resolved without litigation, we represent clients in contested cases before the Iowa Workers' Compensation Commissioner, and in appeals to the Iowa District Court, the Iowa Court of Appeals, and the Iowa Supreme Court.

We work with a variety of injured workers throughout Iowa, including:
  • Plumbers and steamfitters
  • Truck drivers
  • Electrical workers
