Fighting for workers who keep things moving

Workers in the transportation industry help people and goods get to their destinations in Iowa each and every day. But as in any other job, these workers can get hurt in an on-the-job accident. Workers' compensation benefits are supposed to help, but the system doesn't treat workers fairly. Workers' compensation attorney Paul McAndrew fights for their rights.

Transportation industry workers include truck drivers, bus drivers, limo drivers, pilots, flight attendants, mechanics, baggage handlers and many others. A work injury can leave them in need of medical treatment and unable to return to the job for some time. At Paul McAndrew Law Firm, PLLC, we help injured workers get the workers' compensation benefits they deserve.

Workers in the transportation industry can suffer a wide range of injuries. Drivers can suffer injuries if they are involved in a crash during their shift. Or they may develop back pain from long hours spent on the road. Workers involved in loading baggage and cargo can suffer lifting injuries, such as hernias and slipped discs. Workers can also suffer repetitive strain injuries from performing the same motions repeatedly.

An aggressive attorney who gets results

Injured workers in Iowa are eligible for benefits that include coverage of all reasonable and necessary medical treatment, as well as partial wages during the time they are unable to work. But the workers' compensation system favors employers and insurance companies, who often challenge claims and try to keep payments low.

That's why you need an experienced workers' compensation lawyer to look out for your best interests. Attorney Paul McAndrew has been helping injured workers and their families for decades. He knows how to build a strong case that gets results - whether through a negotiated settlement, a hearing or appeal before the Iowa Division of Workers' Compensation, or a jury trial.

Focused on your personal needs

Paul knows the tactics that employers and insurance companies use to avoid paying you the full amount of benefits you should be getting. They may question whether your injury was work-related. They may challenge the extent of your injury, or whether certain medical treatment is necessary.

Our firm does not put up with any of these tactics. We are not interested in playing nice with insurance adjusters to reach a quick settlement. Our goal is to get a resolution of your claim that meets your needs, and nothing less. Sometimes we achieve this goal through negotiation. Other times it takes litigation.
