Workers’ Compensation Cases
Work-related injuries and illnesses result in casualties every year across the United States. In 2014, there were 90 fatal work-related injuries in Iowa alone. At Fitzsimmons Law Firm, we represent the families of workers who’ve died due to work-related injuries and illness. We help these families overcome their personal and financial losses by fighting to secure workers’ compensation death benefits. These benefits include wage replacement, medical coverage, and they can also cover burial costs in some cases.
Have you or a loved one recently been diagnosed with a work-related illness or health condition? Even though work-related illnesses are contracted gradually over time, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation. At Fitzsimmons Law Firm, we understand that chronic illness is something that will affect your ability to work and provide for a family. That’s why we’ll fight to recover your immediate losses and secure the compensation you deserve now and in the future.
Exposure to hazardous and dangerous materials on job sites can result in a variety of chronic diseases and health conditions, including:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Hearing loss
