Des Moines Attorneys Fighting For Workers’ Compensation For Injured Nursing And Health Care Workers

Injuries to workers in the health care industry occur at one of the highest rates of any occupation in the United States. Beyond general administrative tasks, nurses and health care workers assist injured, sick and sometimes combative patients each day.

With more than 50 years of combined legal experience throughout Iowa, our attorneys have handled hundreds of workers’ compensation cases for Iowa health care, nursing home and foster care workers; social workers; certified nursing assistants (CNAs); and others with injuries such as:

  • Lifting injuries, including back and neck injuries and shoulder injuries
  • Repetitive trauma injuries
  • Assaults by patients
  • Infection from blood, medical waste or ill patients
  • Medical equipment injuries
  • Slip-and-fall injuries

Hire An Attorney Who Knows How To Handle These Complex Claims

At Loney & Schueller, we understand the complexities of these claims and handle such cases every day. Our Des Moines workers’ comp lawyers provide personalized service and work in our clients’ best interests in pursuing claims to maximize their benefits and protect their rights.

Insurance companies know that proving on-the-job injury in many circumstances is difficult. A diligent investigation, professional case preparation and expert witness testimony are often required to show the insurance company you are serious about receiving the maximum compensation you are entitled to.

Fighting For The Rights Of Iowa Nurses And Health Care Workers

We prepare every case as if it is going to trial. Attorneys Eric Loney and Randy Schueller will pursue the full, fair value of your claim for your fullest possible recovery, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Travel expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Lost future earnings
  • Vocational rehabilitation and retraining
  • Permanent partial disability (PPD) benefits, if necessary

We negotiate with insurance companies on behalf of our clients and work with specialists to establish the full value of their claims. Your employer doesn’t have the right to let you go, and its insurance company doesn’t have the right to deny you benefits if you were injured on the job.

What Our Clients Say


Randy vigorously negotiated my case and I received a lump sum payment in excess of $200,000. He worked extremely hard for me and made sure I was taken care of. I am more than pleased with the outcome of my case.

Without Eric’s help and guidance I am not sure where I would be. I thank the person who referred Eric to me every day. I recommend that others use Eric for their workers’ compensation cases.
