When an employee or a worker sustains injuries in a workplace accident the first thing the first question that comes to mind is whether they are entitled to claim workers compensation benefits.
Many of us are engaged in occupations that are considerably safe where desk jobs rarely lead to any accidents. However, there are certain occupations in industries such as:
- law enforcement
- fire fighting
- manufacturing units
- working in a factory, and do so on
……where workers are more prone to accidents or even long term exposure to hazardous environments which may later manifest in health issues, and you get the picture.
In order to compensate such workers for their losses, particularly for the medical expenses and lost wages, the state of Iowa has workers’ compensation benefits programs or packages depending on the nature and severity of the injuries.
In some unfortunate cases where the worker dies as a result of the accident, then his or her family will receive benefits to compensate them for the lost financial support or income that the worker used to bring into the household (applicable for dependent relatives only).

Workers compensation claims can be denied and what you can do about it
Employers are well aware that a lot of workers have in the past and even some now continue to file workers compensation benefits claims which are frivolous or fraudulent. There have been instances where workers have faked an injury or illness just to be able to receive benefits without working.
In addition, there have also been cases where the injured worker has healed completely yet pretends to still be impaired or injured to an extent where he or she cannot work just to continue to receive workers compensation benefits.
Of course employers have to be wary about this and scrutinize every claim that they receive to ensure its legitimacy, but it does not warrant their unreasonable and unjustified denials of even legitimate claims which is what happens more often. Most claims are genuine! An injured worker may be in dire straits and when his claim is denied without any concrete explanation it can be intimidating and we understand that.
