Are you eligible for workers’ compensation under Iowa law?
employees who suffer work-related injuries in Iowa are often confused about which types of
injuries are covered under Iowa law. In Iowa, a work-related injury is defined as any health impairment
that results from employment activities and does not result from the normal
wear and tear on the body.
injuries can also include diseases and hearing losses, as long as they are the
result of employment activities or exposure. Preexisting injuries or disease,
however, are not entitled to protection, unless the injury or disease is
aggravated as a result of current employment.
general, most employees injured on the job receive
some protection under Iowa law and are likely eligible for benefits. If you believe you
deserve compensation for a work-related injury, please contactthe Des Moines workers’ compensation attorneys of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at 877-327-2600.
