I injured my back in an auto accident that occurred on company time. Is that eligible for coverage under an Iowa Worker's Comp claim?

If you injured your back in an auto accident on your work time, you most likely will be entitled to file an Iowa Worker's Comp claim to cover your injury expenses. (Note: Iowa Worker's Comp is another name for Iowa Workers' Compensation, the full name of the state program.)

To determine if you are able to receive coverage through an Iowa Worker's Comp claim you may be reviewed on how long you have been with the company, the details of your auto accident, the severity of your injuries, and other variables.

You also have a time limit to file a Worker's Comp claim. There are different time limitations for each step in the process of pursuing an Iowa Worker's Comp claim, such as reporting your injuries to your employer, filing for a Worker's Comp claim, and receiving Iowa Workers' Compensation benefits.
