Injured Workers Have Rights; We Protect Them

If you have been injured on the job, you have a right to receive workers' compensation benefits, including payment of your medical expenses and a portion of your average weekly wages. Unfortunately, many injured workers are not treated fairly by their employers or their workers' compensation insurance companies. They may be left too injured to work and unable to pay their medical bills and the costs of daily living.

Council Bluffs workers' compensation lawyer Laura Pattermann protects the rights of injured workers, and she has done so for more than 20 years. No matter your occupation, whether you are a union worker or non-union worker, the Law Offices of Gallner & Pattermann, P.C., is ready to help you get the workers' comp benefits you need and deserve.

  • Workplace injuries: We represent workers, both union and non-union, who suffered on-the-job injuries as well as those who develop work-related medical conditions or occupational diseases.
  • Medical and wage benefits: Learn what workers' compensation should cover and why you may have trouble obtaining it without legal representation.
