Gourley, Rehkemper & Lindholm PLC - Attorneys At Law
If you have been injured or become ill due to your job you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Workers’ compensation benefits include medical benefits, reimbursement for mileage to doctor appointments, lost wages while off the job, and disability benefits. Workers’ compensation does not allow for claims of damages; compensation is determined by a percentage of wages earned.
Most injured workers are covered by workers’ compensation law; however, certain classes such as agricultural workers, domestic workers, and independent contractors may not be covered. Members in these classes may be able to sue their employer in civil court.
Unless your employer has actual notice of your injury, Iowa law requires that you provide notice to your employer within 90 days or your claim may be barred. Additionally, a claim for workers’ compensation must be filed within either 2 years from the date of injury, or 3 years from the date of the last payment of workers’ compensation benefits.
