A workplace injury to the shoulders or knees can result from a single accident or from the repetition of physical tasks over a period of time. In either case, if your workplace injury has left you unable to perform your normal job tasks and in need of seeing a doctor, you are entitled to receive workers' compensation benefits.
The experienced legal team at Hedberg & Boulton, P.C., in Des Moines, Iowa, helps injured individuals obtain the maximum compensation they deserve under the state's workers' compensation laws.
Des Moines Rotator Cuff Injury Attorney
Shoulder injuries vary in severity. Some are temporary, requiring a shorter leave of absence while others are more extensive, even permanent, requiring a lifetime of rehabilitation and therapy. A shoulder injury may stem from a pre-existing injury that was aggravated by your work tasks.
Our Iowa shoulder injury attorneys will help you seek the medical treatment and the compensation you deserve. We have handled thousands of workers' compensation cases and represented a number of workers who had shoulder injuries, including:
- Peripheral and other nerve damage
- Range of motion impairment
- Torn rotator cuff
- Chronic shoulder pain
- Dislocated shoulder
- Tendon rips/tears
When you work with Hedberg & Boulton, our lawyers will take the time to fully explain the different types of workers' compensation that you may be entitled to in a clear and understandable way.
Employers and their insurance providers do not always have workers' best interests in mind in workers' compensation cases. We understand the keys to obtaining maximum benefits for our clients, beginning with thorough preparation and organization of your complete medical records.
We often are successful reaching a fair agreement for our clients during negotiations, but we will not hesitate to go to court if you are presented with a less-than-fair offer from your employer's insurance company.
