Dedicated Representation In Pre-Existing Injuries

Many hardworking individuals who are injured on the job or who aggravate a pre-existing injury at work fail to collect compensation they deserve because they do not fully understand workers’ compensation laws.

If work activities cause your existing medical condition to accelerate or become aggravated, you qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. For example, if playing sports in high school led to a lower back injury, and a decade later that injury worsens because of work duties such as lifting, you have a valid claim for workers’ compensation benefits.

The Iowa pre-existing injuries attorneys at Hedberg & Boulton, P.C., in Des Moines will help you receive the maximum benefits you are entitled to.

Experienced Workplace Accident Injury Attorneys

A company doctor may tell you that the previous injury many years ago disqualifies you for benefits. In truth, your employer may be trying to avoid paying you and may even tell you that you need to continue working in order to get paid even though that could cause further injuries.

We use our multiple generations of combined experience to create cases aimed at getting you the benefits you need. We have strong working relationships with highly qualified medical professionals who can provide documentation that illustrates how your pre-existing injury has worsened due to work-related activities.

It is not necessary for work to be the only factor or even the lead factor in the worsening of your condition. If work contributed to the problem, that may be sufficient to receive workers’ compensation benefits.
