Heavy Equipment Accidents

An aggressive Iowa construction accident injury

Look at any construction project in Iowa, and you’ll see all kinds of heavy equipment. Equipment such as bulldozers, cranes, backhoes, excavators, front-end loaders, forklifts and other examples. They all have different purposes, but they all have one thing in common. They can all cause very serious injuries to workers in an accident. At Paul McAndrew Law Firm, PLLC, we help injured workers recover workers’ compensation benefits.

Each piece of heavy equipment used on construction sites weighs tons and has many moving parts. There are safety procedures that must be followed when this equipment is used, but accidents can still happen. All it takes is one act of carelessness or negligence, or for a defective part to malfunction. The result is a serious work injury.

There are many types of injuries that can occur in a heavy equipment accident. These include broken bones, lacerations and burns. More serious examples include traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. In some cases, accidents can lead to amputation or paralysis. Heavy equipment injuries can have a devastating impact on workers – and their families.

We won’t back down

Attorney Paul McAndrew has seen the toll construction accident injuries can take on working families. The cost of medical treatment can become overwhelming. And because the worker can’t return to the job, there is less income coming in. Many families struggle to keep their homes and their quality of life.

Workers injured on the job deserve workers’ compensation benefits to cover the cost of necessary medical treatment and provide partial wages while they are recovering. But employers and insurance companies know how to use the system to keep payments low. The result is workers end up being cheated out of benefits.
