Your Concerns are Our Priorities
When someone has been injured on the job, they often worry about lost wages, their ability to choose the doctor to treat and diagnose their injuries, medical bills, and retaliation by their employer. The Erickson Law Office moves decisively to help make sure you are not steered to a company doctor who will assist in the effort to deny your claim. Here in Iowa, employers get to choose the doctor you will see, but you have the right to contest that choice if you are not satisfied with the treatment or diagnosis.
If you or a loved one has sustained a permanent disability, Attorney Erickson strives to ensure the injuries are fully evaluated so that an eventual settlement or award is fair. He also capably assists clients expected to miss more than a year of work, making them eligible to apply for Social Security disability benefits.
The Erickson Law Office focuses on employees from all walks of life: truck drivers and factory workers to meat-packing employees, maintenance people, and those who work in food production in factories and warehouses, among others.
