When you are injured at work, your employer must pay for all reasonable and necessary medical care to treat your work injury, including reasonable and necessary travel expenses to undergo treatment. If you miss days of work related to your injury, you may be entitled to weekly disability payments.
Either the employer’s insurance company or the employer will pay employee workers’ compensation benefits. If your claim is denied, it is advisable to work with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney who can file a contested case proceeding before the Iowa Workers’ Compensation Commissioner.
