Fighting For Injured Workers
Have you been injured on the job? Work-related injuries can affect any part of the body, such as the back, shoulder, hand arm or knee. Hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing in the ears) can also be caused by the work environment. If you are injured in Iowa, even if your employer is in another state, you have rights under the Iowa Workers’ Compensation Act. Attorneys at Rush & Nicholson use our experience to fight for workers’ legal rights and to get fair compensation for them. We investigate every injury, no matter how small, to get you compensation for workplace injuries and illnesses, including:
Negligence is the legal term for the lack of care that causes or contributes to an accident. For example, a person is negligent if he failed to stop at a stop sign and hit your car.
A person who is negligent can be held legally responsible for the damage and injuries caused. When negligence and damages are proven against a person or company, you are entitled to recover compensation for your injuries.
At Rush & Nicholson, we are skilled at identifying and documenting negligence and all resulting damages and losses. We know how to prepare a strong case, negotiate a settlement, or fight for you at trial.
Our lawyers consult when needed with trauma doctors, surgeons, chiropractors, engineers, mechanics and accident reconstruction analysts. At trial, these experts are available to deliver clear, professional testimony to ensure you receive justice and a fair verdict.
Employment and labor laws impact the relationship between employers and employees. Winning these cases requires attorneys to be knowledgeable about federal, state and local employment and labor laws and regulations, wage and overtime standards, workplace safety, termination of employment, sexual harassment, discrimination, and employee benefits.
