Injured On The Job?

At the northern Iowa workers' compensation law firm of Peterson & Lipps, we've been helping injured people for more than 30 years. Whether you were injured in a truck, car or equipment-related accident, factory or construction site accident, farm accident, or from repetitive movement on the job over a period of time, we can help you recover the workers' compensation benefits that you are entitled to.

We Can Help You Obtain The Compensation You Deserve

If you feel that you are not receiving proper medical care from the company selected doctor, if the company doctor has downplayed the severity of your injury, or if you weren't properly compensated for your injury, disability or time lost from work, contact an experienced Iowa workers' compensation attorney today.

The decision to contact an attorney after a work-related injury is an important one because an experienced attorney can advise you on how to protect your medical, employment and workers' compensation rights. For example, if you do not promptly notify your employer of the injury or obtain a written medical excuse to be absent from work, your rights can be damaged or even lost.

At the Iowa workers' compensation law firm of Peterson & Lipps, we're dedicated to protecting the rights of injured workers. If you are unsure of your rights we invite you to contact Thomas W. Lipps, to schedule a free consultation to learn:

  • Whether you should hire a lawyer
  • Whether you have a case
  • How to avoid mistakes and to protect your rights
  • How to hire a board-certified trial attorney
  • About contingency fees

You pay no attorneys fees until we recover money for you.

Algona workers' compensation attorney Thomas W. Lipps can assist you in:

  • Providing your employer with legal notice of your injury
  • Filing your workers' comp injury claim
  • Obtaining an independent medical opinion if you don't agree with the opinion of the company doctor
  • Disputing your disability or impairment rating
  • Representing you in court before the Iowa Workers' Compensation Commissioner
  • Transferring your medical care to another physician if you are dissatisfied with the care you are receiving from the company-selected doctor

The most common types of injuries are back injuries, broken bones, carpal tunnel syndrome, arm, shoulder, leg, knee and hip injuries, as well as repetitive stress and cumulative trauma injuries. People often think of repetitive stress injuries affecting only hands and wrists, but these injuries can occur in any joint that is overused. In addition, motor vehicle accidents that occur on the job are another frequent source of injuries for all types of workers.
