A car accident is a scary time in anyone's life, and they are perhaps more concerning when children are involved. Nobody wants to see a child hurt, and kids themselves may have trouble understanding why an accident happened. This notion may be especially concerning for drivers in South Dakota and Iowa, where a higher percentage of children under the age of 15 die as a result of car crashes when compared to other states.
Drivers are aware of the common dangers faced on the road, but residents of South Dakota and northwest Iowa face something that is unique to the Great Plains. Wind acts as an invisible danger to drivers along the I-29 and I-90 corridors, making South Dakota and Iowa among the top five windiest states in the country.
Receiving notification that your workers' compensation claim was denied is both shocking and discouraging. Typically, when a claim is denied it's because the insurance company decided that your injury does not meet the necessary standards and therefore shouldn't be covered by workers' compensation. This is upsetting because you know in your heart that your injury was legitimately sustained at work and you don't understand how they could disagree.
