Out-Of-State Workers’ Compensation Claims

Work injuries can happen anywhere. What do you do if you are injured while traveling out of state for work? In workers’ compensation matters, the state where you are injured may apply to your claim. If you are injured while traveling on work matters in Iowa, that may not be a bad thing.

To ensure that you get the benefits you deserve, make sure you have an Iowa workers’ compensation attorney on your side. At Loney & Schueller, LLC, in Des Moines, we have more than 50 years of combined experience helping injured workers. In addition to representing clients throughout the state, we provide guidance to out-of-state workers who are hurt while traveling for work in Iowa.

When It Comes To Workers’ Compensation Benefits, All States Are Not Equal

You may have the opportunity to choose whether to obtain workers’ compensation benefits in the state where you reside or the state you were injured. Before choosing a state to recover under your own state laws, you may want to explore filing your claim in the state where you were injured.

Many people do not realize that workers’ compensation benefits are different in different states. Each state has its own set of laws covering work injury claims and different caps on the maximum benefit a person is entitled to receive. The compensation a person might receive for the permanent loss of use of a limb, such as a hand or an arm, is more generous in Iowa than in many other states.
