Some jobs carry a higher risk of injury due to workplace conditions and the nature of the work. But an injury can happen in any workplace accident at any type of job.
Workers can suffer many different types of injuries. These include injuries to the head, neck or back, repetitive strain injuries and broken bones. Workers may temporarily or permanently lose functioning in a specific part of the body. They may require medical treatment and may be unable to return to work for some time, resulting in a loss of income.
Aggressive attorney on your side
In Iowa, employers and insurance companies can and do challenge claims for workers' compensation benefits. They're counting on you not being familiar with the law. They each have lawyers to look out for their interests. That's why you need an experienced attorney to look out for your best interests.
Attorney Paul McAndrew has been helping injured workers in Iowa get the workers' compensation benefits they deserve for decades. He knows the laws and knows how the claims process works. He fights relentlessly to get you fair treatment in the worker's compensation system, so you can get the medical care you need and the benefits you deserve.
Other attorneys sometimes try to reach a quick settlement with the insurance company. The problem is that such a settlement will still leave you shortchanged. Paul is only interested in a resolution of your claim that meets your needs. Sometimes he can achieve this through a negotiated settlement. Other times, he will fight for your rights in court.
Focused on meaningful results
He begins by gathering evidence to build a strong case on your behalf, a case that proves the extent of your injury and establishes the treatment you need to recover. When insurance companies see that we have a built a strong case and are prepared to take it to court, they are usually much more likely to negotiate a settlement that works for you.
He will also make sure that you get the medical treatment you need. If necessary treatment is denied, he will appeal the decision. If the doctor chosen by your employer is not providing adequate care, he will file an alternate care application to get you a new doctor. If a doctor gives you an inaccurate impairment rating, he will fight to get a second opinion.
