Worker's Compensation

If you are injured at work, you have a workers compensation claim. If you are sick or injured and your work activities contributed to your injury, then you have aworkers compensation claim.

It does not matter whether or not your employer is somehow at fault. All that needs to be shown is a connection between your injury and your employment activities. Sometimes this is obvious, such as when a worker breaks his leg during a work accident. Sometimes it is not so obvious, such as when a worker whose job requires lifting and use of the shoulders develops a torn rotator cuff. Both of these types of injuries are compensable under Iowa’s workers compensation system.

Workers compensation is not like other areas of the law, and you will want to make sure that you hire a lawyer who knows the “ins and outs” of workers compensation. Gaumer, Emanuel, Carpenter & Goldsmith has decades of experience in the workers compensation arena, and we know those “ins and outs.” We typically accept these cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that we do not get paid until you get paid.
