Repetitive strain injuries are painful and affect the ability of workers to do their job. Medical treatment is required and affected workers may be unable to work during recovery. Injured workers see their medical expenses go up as their income goes down. Depending on the seriousness of the injury, it may become hard to make ends meet.
You deserve compensation for your injuries
In Iowa, workers who suffer repetitive strain injuries on the job are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits cover the cost of medical treatment and also provide partial wages while the worker can’t return to the job. But injured workers typically aren’t treated fairly.
Employers and insurance companies routinely challenge claims for workers’ compensation, and insurance companies can deny treatment. As an injured worker, you are required to see a doctor chosen by the employer. This doctor does not have your best interests in mind, and you may be denied the benefits you deserve.
An attorney who won’t back down
Attorney Paul McAndrew has dedicated his practice to helping injured workers who aren’t treated fairly by the system. He stands up for their rights and builds a strong case on their behalf. He won’t settle for anything less than a resolution of your case that meets your needs.
Insurance companies may try to make you a settlement offer, hoping you’ll take it and go away. But it often won’t come close to the full amount of benefits you deserve for your injury. Paul is not interested in playing nice with insurance adjusters. If a settlement offer is not acceptable, he will tell them. And if they are unwilling to negotiate a better offer, he will fight for you in court, where he has won many significant awards for clients.
