Agriculture

Get an aggressive workers' compensation attorney on your side

Jobs in the agricultural industry are often hard work, and the risk of getting hurt is high. Following an on-the-job accident, agricultural workers often face mounting medical bills while no money is coming in because their injury prevents them from working. Paul McAndrew Law Firm, PLLC helps injured workers in Iowa get the benefits they deserve.

Agricultural workers face many risks to their health. Some work with heavy machinery, such as tractors and cultivators. Their jobs often involve heavy lifting and working while kneeling or squatting. Some work above ground on ladders. Others work with large, heavy animals. Many regularly work with chemicals.

Common work injuries among agricultural workers include lifting injuries, repetitive strain injuries, back and knee injuries, and injuries after falling from heights. Some workers suffer traumatic brain injury or amputation. Others develop occupational diseases from exposure to hazardous chemicals.

After an on-the-job accident, injured agricultural workers are faced with medical bills for their treatment, while at the same time there is no money coming in because they can't work. It's a difficult situation that the workers' compensation system is supposed to address. But the system favors employers and insurance companies, who regularly try to keep their payments as low as possible. Workers aren't treated fairly.

We won't settle for less

Attorney Paul McAndrew has seen how injured workers are often cheated out of their benefits following an accident. He knows the impact a workplace injury has on injured workers and their families. He knows the tactics that employers and insurance companies use to deny claims. And he has dedicated his legal career to helping workers get fair treatment.

Our firm does a thorough review of your workplace accident and the injuries it caused. We look for evidence to build a strong case that proves your claim for benefits. Paul knows how to navigate the claims process and has represented countless clients at hearing and appeals at the Iowa Division of Workers' Compensation.

The easy thing for a lawyer to do would be to play nice with the insurance adjusters and make a quick settlement. But that leaves you with far fewer benefits than you should get. Paul is only interested in getting you the full amount of benefits you need and deserve. Nothing less. He is ready to fight for you all the way to court, where he has won many times for clients.
