Workers’ Compensation Claims And Shoulder Injuries
Shoulder injuries can be debilitating. The experienced legal team at Hedberg & Boulton, P.C., in Des Moines helps injured individuals in Iowa obtain the maximum compensation they deserve under the state’s workers’ compensation laws.
Causes For Workplace Shoulder Injuries
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.
Shoulder injuries vary in severity. Sometimes, this type of injury only requires a short leave of absence. However, other injuries are more extensive and could require rehab and therapy for the rest of your life. A shoulder injury may stem from an old injury that was aggravated by your work tasks.

Our Experienced Workers’ Comp Attorneys
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 case preparation and the organization of your complete medical records.
We often are successful in 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.
