Workers’ Compensation For Factory Injuries
In the state of Iowa, employers are required to have workers’ compensation insurance for their factory employees. When an employee is injured on the job, they have 90 days to notify their employer of their injury. After an accident, they can submit an insurance claim for coverage. Under workers’ compensation, injured workers may be entitled to reimbursement for medical expenses, lost wages and weekly benefits.
How Long Do Disability Benefits Last?
In the state of Iowa, there is no time limit for how long you can receive total temporary disability benefits. As long as:
- You are receiving regular medical care.
- Your condition is improving due to regular medical care.
- You have not reached maximum medical improvement status.
In Iowa, an injured factory worker’s temporary disability or permanent disability benefits rate will generally be calculated at about 80% of their average weekly income after taxes.
Filing A Personal Injury Claim For A Factory Injury
In some instances, an injured factory worker may have a personal injury claim for their accident injury. If the accident happened because of a machine or equipment malfunction or failure or if the property owners failed to maintain proper safety conditions, an employee may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit. An experienced workers’ compensation attorney who also practices personal injury law will be able to help you understand all of your options and choose the best course of action to recover compensation for your injury.
