Falls From Heights

An aggressive Iowa workers’ compensation lawyer

Many construction accidents involve a worker being injured after falling from a height. These workers are often left with serious injuries, mounting medical bills and less income while they are unable to work. The state workers’ compensation system is supposed to help, but it favors employers and insurance companies. Paul McAndrew Law Firm, PLLC fights to get fair treatment for injured workers.

Construction workers often work high above the ground, using scaffolding or ladders. There are safety procedures that must be followed to protect workers. But sometimes mistakes are made, and equipment can be defective. Scaffolding can collapse. A ladder can tip over after being struck by a vehicle.

In the best-case scenario, a worker who falls from a height will suffer relative minor injuries, such as muscle sprains and strains, and cuts and bruises. But more often, a fall results in a broken arm or leg. Sometimes it results in a serious head or back injury. An injured worker could be facing surgery, hospitalization, medication and therapy. Recovery can take months, or longer.

Fighting for your rights throughout the process

Attorney Paul McAndrew has been helping injured construction workers for decades. He has seen the physical, mental, emotional and financial impact of work injuries on workers and their families. That’s why he has dedicated his practice to helping injured workers get justice in the Iowa workers’ compensation system.

Injured workers are required to be treated by a doctor chosen by the employer. But such doctors are not looking out for your best interests. It is just another way for employers and insurance companies to question the extent of your injuries and deny you the benefits you should be getting.
