Understanding The Workers’ Compensation System

What the workers’ compensation system is designed to do and what the insurers that actually provide the benefits do are often not the same thing. Too often, the medical bills of injured workers are not paid for by their employer’s insurance provider. This leaves those workers and their families in precarious financial situations.

Many injured parties attempt to navigate the workers’ compensation system on their own. Without experienced guidance to help you fight for the benefits you deserve, you may feel stuck with a denied claim or leave benefits on the table.

The range of workers’ compensation benefits available to injured workers includes:

  • Medical bill coverage
  • Coverage for lost wages
  • Temporary disability
  • Permanent disability

Helping You Navigate Iowa’s Workers’ Comp Process

I am Mark L. Chipokas, founding attorney of Mark L. Chipokas PC. I know how important it is for injured workers to receive the full complement of benefits to which they are entitled. The process of recovering from a serious injury can be long and costly. Being able to cover the cost of your medical care without ruining your family’s finances is critical.

With more than 25 years of experience, I understand what is at stake for injured workers and their families. I am proud to be able to help them fight for what is theirs.

Prompt Action Is Important

If you have been injured in an on-the-job accident, you need to ensure that you receive all available workers’ compensation benefits. It is important to report the accident to your supervisor, and then seek proper medical care. Contact a knowledgeable workers’ comp lawyer like myself as soon as possible to begin building the strong case you need to maximize what you recover.

All workers’ comp cases are taken on a contingency fee basis. There are no upfront costs, and I only collect a fee if I help you obtain benefits. To schedule a free initial consultation, call 319-366-7888, or contact my office online. I assist workers throughout Cedar Rapids and Iowa City.

After being injured on my job and following their every step through physical therapy and still not having the end... results I needed. I contacted Mark and after my meeting with him and his very concerned and gracious team I felt that making Mark my lawyer was going to be the best for me to get the help I needed. It took 1 year of frustration to get my work company to get me the care I deserved. If it wasn't for him and his team fighting for what was right I would have never been able to get the surgery done. I appreciate him and his staff for listening to me when I emailed, called or even stopped in.read more

Mark, Polly and Angela have been there for my husband and I from day one. They have been by my side through every... twist and turn in the alternate universe known as worker’s compensation law. Mark has always been readily available on the phone and in person if I had any questions or concerns. Mark has truly been a God send and I don’t believe I would have had the same outcomes without him. When I thought I had no fight left he was there to fight for me. Because of that fight Mark was able to get me a settlement that has truly been life changing for my family.read more
