Dealing With The Iowa Division of Workers’ Compensation

A workers’ compensation attorney with a track record of results

In Iowa, disputes over workers’ compensation claims are common. An injured worker submits a claim for benefits, which employers and insurance companies can challenge. These disputes are handled by the Iowa Division of Workers’ Compensation. Paul McAndrew Law Firm, PLLC builds a strong case for injured workers to help them get the benefits they deserve.

The Division of Workers’ Compensation is run by a commissioner, with deputy commissioners who make decisions on claims. Common reasons initial claims are denied include:

  • Missed deadlines
  • Determination that injury was not work-related
  • Injury was not severe enough to be eligible for benefits
  • Drug or alcohol use was a factor in injury
  • Injured worker was not an employee
  • Injury related to a pre-existing condition

If your claim is denied, you will be given a reason for the decision. You then have the right to appeal the denial, first in a hearing in front of a deputy commissioner. But you need to make a convincing case why the initial denial was wrong and why you deserve benefits.

That’s why it’s important to have an experienced workers’ compensation attorney on your side. One who knows how to gather evidence that builds a strong case for overturning a denial of benefits. A lawyer thoroughly familiar with the workers’ compensation claims process and dedicated to getting you the benefits you deserve.
