Study ranks Iowa first in workers’ compensation
The workers’ compensation system in Iowa is the top system in the United States, according to a study by the Work-Loss Data Institute. The study was based on data from Operational Safety and Health Administration Form 300’s and 200’s.
The forms include data about statewide injuries, illnesses, and workers’ compensation. The study’s data only goes back seven years and does not take into account data from 2008.
Although Iowa ranked first in this study for workers’ compensation, that does not mean injured Iowa workers always receive adequate compensation. If you or anyone you know has been injured on the job and has not received sufficient compensation, contact the Iowa workers’ compensation lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at 877-327-2600.
