Workers' compensation being withheld? Bad faith may be to blame

Individuals who work in Iowa shouldn't have to fear for their financial stability in the event of a workplace injury. After all, most employers are required by law to carry workers' compensation insurance. This means that those who are hurt while performing their job duties should be able to secure workers' compensation benefits in a timely fashion to help offset their lost wages and medical expenses.

Examples of employer and insurer bad faith

Being injured on the job is no small thing. It can leave you with extensive pain that can last for weeks or months, and it can leave you facing financial uncertainty as you struggle to find a way to pay medical expenses and make up for lost wages. This is where a workers' compensation claim should help. Sadly, far too many Iowa residents find themselves struggling to work with their employer and their employer's workers' compensation insurer. This can cause claims to stagnate and financial uncertainty to grow.

The basics of a bad faith claim

If you've been injured on the job in Iowa, then you're probably finding yourself overwhelmed. You might be struggling to ease your pain, and it might be worrisome to say the least to think that you'll no longer have an income on which to support yourself and your family. Of course, you might take relief in the fact that you might be entitled to workers' compensation benefits, but what happens when an insurance company keeps brushing you off to avoid paying out?
