Which State Has The Best Benefits For Me?

Several attorneys in our office are licensed in multiple states. The issue of where to file a law suit and which state has better benefits for the injured worker comes up commonly, especially in cases where the injured worker travels for work. There are certain situations in which workers' compensation benefits will be more beneficial for an injured worker if they are able to pursue the claim in Iowa, rather than Nebraska. Employees injured while working in Iowa are entitled to Iowa workers' compensation benefits. If an employee is injured outside of Iowa, there may still be Iowa jurisdiction if (1) the employer has a place of business in Iowa and the employee regularly works at or from that place of business; (2) the employer has a place of business in Iowa and the employee lives in Iowa; (3) the employee is working under a contract of hire made in Iowa and employee regularly works in Iowa; (4) the employee is working under a contract of hire made in Iowa and sustains an injury for which no remedy is available under the workers' compensation laws of another state; (5) the employee is working under a contract of hire made in Iowa for employment outside of the United State; and/or (6) the employer has a place of business in Iowa and the employee is working under a contract of hire that provides that workers' compensation claims will be governed by Iowa law. In order to assess the best recovery available for an work injury, contact our office and discuss with one of our dually-licensed attorneys.
