Broken Bones

An Iowa workers’ compensation lawyer who gets results

A common type of injury seen in on-the-job accidents is broken bones. These injuries usually heal in time, but they can be very painful and result in temporary loss of mobility. The injured worker may be unable to work during this time, resulting in a loss of income. Paul McAndrew Law Firm, PLLC fights to make sure these injured workers get the workers’ compensation benefits they deserve.

Broken bones are more common in certain jobs, such as trucking, construction and manufacturing. But they can happen to any worker at any type of workplace. These work injuries can be the result of a slip and fall accident, being hit by a falling object, falling from a height or being involved in a car or truck crash.

There are also many types of bone fractures, some more serious than others. Common locations of broken bones include the arm, wrist, hip, ankle and collarbone. Treatment usually involves setting the broken bone and immobilizing it, but in some cases surgery may also be required. Recovery can take weeks to months.

Get the benefits you deserve

The Iowa workers’ compensation system is set up to pay for the cost of treatment and provide partial wages while the employee is unable to work. But the reality is that employers and insurance companies will try to find ways to pay you as little as possible. That’s why you need an experienced workers’ compensation attorney on your side.

Attorney Paul McAndrew knows the tactics insurance companies use to try to minimize workers’ compensation benefits. They may question the extent of your injury. Or they may deny treatment. They may even try to say that you are able to return to work, even though you are still recovering from your injury.

Fighting for working families

Paul does not put up with any of these tactics, and he does not mince words with insurance adjusters. He builds a strong case that shows which benefits you should be receiving, and does not settle for less. If the insurance company won’t agree to negotiate a settlement that meets your needs, he will fight for you in court.

As a workers’ compensation lawyer, Paul has seen how devastating a workplace injury can be to families. They are faced with more bills while less income is coming in. Some families struggle to hold on to their homes and their way of life. He is dedicated to helping you get the full amount of workers’ compensation benefits you deserve.
