Suffering an on-the-job injury can be just the beginning of a period of uncertainty and anxiety. Serious work-related injuries can cast a number of aspects of your future into doubt. Fully recovering from injuries is not always a certainty. Your ability to return to work may be in question. That can, in turn, create substantial financial uncertainty for your household.
The way you handle these issues can affect your future and your family’s future. Iowa’s workers’ compensation system is designed to help injured workers with medical coverage and benefits to cover lost wages. But, the system does not always function properly on its own.
