Confinement Buildings

An experienced and aggressive workers’ compensation attorney

Many agricultural workers throughout Iowa work in confinement buildings. It’s hard work with many hazards, and the risk of a workplace accident is high. Injured workers deserve workers’ compensation benefits, but the claims process can be difficult. Paul McAndrew Law Firm, PLLC helps injured workers get the benefits they need and deserve.

Confinement buildings are used to house large numbers of chickens, hogs or cattle in the livestock industry. They are unique operations and pose unique hazards to employees. Slip-and-fall accidents are common. Employees are exposed to dust and gas from feed and feces. And the animals themselves can sometimes be hard to control.

Workers in confinement buildings can suffer muscle strains and sprains, lifting injuries, repetitive strain injuries, respiratory illness and many other injuries. Their work injuries leave them in need of medical treatment, and they may not be able to return to work for some time. That’s when the workers’ compensation system is supposed to help them.

But the truth is employers and insurance companies have an advantage in the state workers’ compensation system. And they use this advantage to pay injured workers as little as possible. In the meantime, injured workers and their families have rising medical bills and less income. Many struggle to hold onto their quality of life and even their homes.

Fighting for fairness

That’s why attorney Paul McAndrew is dedicated to helping injured workers get the workers’ compensation benefits they should be receiving after an on-the-job accident. He is tired of seeing employers and insurance companies treat workers unfairly. And he knows how to build a strong case that helps change that.

Paul has been helping injured workers and their families in Iowa for decades. He investigates workplace accidents to gather evidence that supports your claim. He demands second opinions. He petitions for a new doctor if the one chosen by your employer is not providing adequate care. He fights aggressively for clients every step of the way.

You can expect aggressive representation at all hearings and appeals in front of the Iowa Division of Workers’ Compensation. And if that does not get the right results, Paul will fight for you in the court system, where he has achieved many significant outcomes for clients. He is determined to make sure you get the medical care you need for your injury and the partial wages you deserve to help you get through this difficult time.
