Fighting For The Rights Of Iowa Nurses And Health Care Workers
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.
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.
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
