Why are workers' compensation claims denied?

Individuals in Iowa who suffer an injury at work can suddenly find themselves struggling to make ends meet. Unexpected medical expenses, rehabilitation costs and lost wages can eat away at one's savings and leave an injured worker worried about what the future holds for them. Fortunately, these individuals may be able to obtain financial relief through the workers' compensation system. However, many of these claims are initially denied, necessitating an appeal.

Consider legal help when injured at work

Previously on this blog we discussed repetitive motion injuries and the effect they can have on your ability to work. Unfortunately, these are not the only risks you might face in the workplace. A scaffolding fall, a machinery pinch or crush and exposure to harsh chemicals can all leave you seriously injured and facing significant losses. Amongst these damages are lost wages and medical expenses. You might also need extensive rehabilitation. If your injury or illness keeps you out of work for a period of time, and the injury was suffered at work, then workers' compensation benefits may be sought.
