No profession in Iowa is safe from workplace dangers. Some jobs, of course, pose more threats than others, but even those who normally work behind a desk can end up suffering on-the-job injuries. The harm caused in a workplace accident can run the spectrum of severity, too. Some individuals are able to return to work quickly, thereby incurring minimal losses. Others, though, face harm that is debilitating or fatal. Regardless of the circumstances, workers' compensation benefits may be available to help these individuals secure the financial resources they need to acquire appropriate medical treatment and recoup their lost wages.
It's no secret that many Social Security disability claims are initially denied. There may be a number of reasons for these denials, including insufficient medical evidence and work history. As frustrating as this may be, a recent study may be shedding light on the lax review system SSD claims undergo, which could be costing countless Americans -- including those right here in Iowa -- the financial support they deserve under the law.
