People should get workers' compensation claim help from an attorney to avoid an uphill battle. In addition to focusing on healing and making all your doctor's appointments, you face having to complete critical legal paperwork. Further, you need to communicate with your employer, his or her insurance company, and even Iowa's Workers' Compensation Commission by yourself. Before you decide to handle your workers' compensation alone, consider the help that an experienced attorney can provide you with while you heal.
Have you been injured at work in Iowa? Perhaps you've been sickened by exposure to toxins or other health risks at your job? If you are suffering, you should be receiving workers' compensation benefits. While your employer or your insurance company may try to tell you that you aren't entitled to help, the truth is that benefits are required under state law for many reasons. Call Niko Pothitakis for help with your work injury claims.
Pothitakis clients come from towns all over Iowa. This makes sense, of course, because Fairfield workers have the same rights as Iowa City workers. Davenport area employees are covered by the same laws as those who work in Ottumwa or Bettendorf. Iowa law recognizes every worker and requires all employers to live up to their responsibility to sick or injured workers. Have you been injured at work in Iowa? Then you have equal rights under Iowa law to file for benefits.
Range of Benefits
Have you been injured at work in Iowa before? Workers often don't know the full range of benefits required under Iowa law. There is more than one type of benefit under Iowa's workers' compensation law. Of course, there are medical benefits, but there are also healing period benefits that offer payments while a person is recuperating. Benefits can be temporary, lasting weeks or months. Benefits can be semi-permanent, lasting years. Benefits can even last a lifetime when the injury is so bad that the worker can't ever work again. A worker may get partial benefits if the injury or illness will prevent them from working at their previous income level. Furthermore, these benefits are sometimes granted as a lump sum. Niko Pothitakis can help you claim all of the benefits to which you are entitled.

How Much Does an Attorney Charge to Provide Workers' Compensation Claim Help?
Those who suffer an on-the-job injury and can't work are or will be hurting financially if they don't get the benefits that they need and are entitled to under Iowa law. Workers may hesitate to contact an attorney, concerned that a workers' compensation attorney will cost far more money than they can afford.
But many workers' compensation attorneys charge a contingency fee to handle the case. Under a contingency fee, the attorney doesn't receive a penny in legal service fees unless and until he or she wins your case, and you receive a check.
With this arrangement, you and the attorney decide on the percentage that the attorney receives out of your workers' compensation settlement. In most cases, the attorney may not charge out-of-pocket costs for things like filing fees or copying costs.
When you speak with workers' compensation attorneys about handling your case, make sure to ask about how he or she charges work injury claim attorney's fees.
