Types of vehicles used on construction sites include truck cranes, skid loaders, dump trucks, road rollers, road graders and concrete mixers. Proper safety procedures are supposed be followed at all times. But negligent operation or defective equipment can easily lead to a construction accident that injures workers.
Fighting for clients throughout Iowa
Work injuries may include broken bones, internal injuries, torn muscles or ligaments, or injuries to the head, neck or back. Treatment may involve surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy and medication. All of this can quickly get quite expensive. And while the worker is unable to return to the job, there is no income coming in.
Employers and insurance companies know how to work the workers' compensation system in their favor. You are required to see a doctor chosen by the employer - one who will by definition not be looking out for your best interests. Insurance companies often deny needed treatment to injured workers.
Attorney Paul McAndrew knows the tactics they use and he does not put up with them. He has been dealing with the Iowa Division of Workers' Compensation for decades, and he knows how to build a strong case that gets results for clients. At every hearing, appeal - and if needed - court proceeding, he will fight aggressively for your rights.
We know what you're going through
An injury can have a major impact on workers and their families in many ways. They are affected physically, mentally, emotionally and financially. It can become harder to make ends meet and some families struggle to hold onto their homes. Paul McAndrew knows what working families go through after a work injury and does all he can to help.
That's why he is not interested in playing nice with insurance adjusters just to make a quick settlement that falls short of meeting your needs. He is only interested in getting you the workers' compensation benefits you should be getting, nothing less. If negotiation with the insurance company doesn't produce a settlement that works for clients, he fights for them in court.
