Vocational Work

An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer fighting for you

Many workers throughout Iowa have vocational jobs that require training to develop skills in a specific area. This vocational work also carries the risk of injury in a workplace accident. Injured workers in Iowa are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, but the system favors employers and insurance companies. Paul McAndrew Law Firm, PLLC fights for the rights of injured workers.

Types of vocational jobs include:

  • Electricians
  • Plumbers
  • HVAC technicians
  • Bricklayers
  • Mechanics
  • Carpenters
  • Machinists

Many of these jobs involve working with power tools, large machines, vehicles and other hazards. The risk of injury is always present. And despite taking safety precautions, an on-the-job accident can happen that leaves a worker seriously injured. Medical treatment is needed, and the worker may be unable to return to work for some time.

The workers’ compensation system is set up to help injured workers pay for needed medical treatment and to provide them with partial wages while they are left unable to work. But getting these benefits can be a complicated process. And employers and insurance companies routinely try to pay injured workers as little as possible.

An aggressive advocate who gets results

While employers and insurance companies challenge claims, injured workers and their families struggle to make ends meet. There is less income coming in. Medical bills pile up. And the longer the dispute over benefits continues, the more difficult it is for working families. Some risk losing their homes.

That’s why attorney Paul McAndrew has dedicated his practice to helping people get the workers’ compensation benefits they deserve for their work injuries. He fights to get fair treatment for injured workers in a system that is stacked against them. Employers and insurance companies have lawyers protecting their interests. You need an experienced attorney to look out for yours.

Fighting for results that meet your needs

Paul is not interested in playing nice with insurance adjusters to work out a quick settlement of your claim that leaves you with fewer benefits than you deserve. His goal is resolve your claim in a way that meets your needs, nothing less. He gathers evidence to build a strong case on your behalf.

Sometimes this convinces insurance companies to negotiate a settlement that works for you. But if not, Paul will litigate your claim. He has won many benefits for clients after fighting for them in court. He is not intimidated by employers and insurance companies and their team of lawyers.
