At the Northern Iowa worker's compensation law firm of Peterson & Lipps, we've been helping injured people for more than 30 years. Whether you were injured in a truck, car, or equipment-related accident, factory or construction site accident, farm accident, or from repetitive movement on the job over a period of time, we can help you recover the worker's compensation benefits that you are entitled to.
If you feel that you are not receiving proper medical care from the company selected doctor, if the company doctor has downplayed the severity of your injury, or if you weren't properly compensated for your injury, disability, or time lost from work, contact an experienced Iowa workers compensation attorney today.
The decision to contact an attorney after a work related injury is an important one because an experienced attorney can advise you how to protect your medical, employment, and worker's compensation rights. For example, if you do not promptly notify your employer of the injury or obtain a written medical excuse to be absent from work your rights can be damaged or even lost.
