Shoulder Injuries

Fighting for injured workers and their families

Shoulder injuries are a common type of work injury in Iowa. An injured shoulder requires medical treatment, and injured workers may lose income while they are unable to return to their job. That’s when you need an experienced workers’ compensation attorney. Paul McAndrew Law Firm, PLLC helps workers with shoulder injuries get the workers’ compensation benefits they deserve.

These injuries are more common in jobs that involve physical labor – for example, construction, manufacturing, food production and health care. But they can happen at any type of job. A shoulder injury can occur from falling, lifting a heavy weight, pushing or pulling, a car or truck accident or from repetitive motion.

A shoulder can be injured in many different ways. An injured worker may experience stiffness, dislocation, inflammations, muscle tears or strains or sprains. But however the shoulder was injured, it can leave a worker in pain with limited mobility. Workers require medical treatment for their shoulder and may miss work while they recover.

An aggressive advocate who won’t back down

Shoulder injuries can be treated. But they can have a significant impact on the lives of injured workers and their families. Medical treatment is expensive, and the bills can become overwhelming very quickly. And if the injured worker is unable to return to work for some time, there is less income coming in. Many families struggle.

The workers’ compensation system is supposed to help by paying the cost of medical treatment and providing the worker with partial wages. But the system favors employers and insurance companies, who are always looking for ways to pay workers as little as possible. That’s why you need an experienced workers’ compensation attorney on your side.
