That's why he is dedicated to helping injured workers get the full amount of workers' compensation benefits they need and deserve. Paul doesn't believe injured workers should have to settle for less than the benefits they should be getting. In a system that favors employers and insurance companies, he fights to get fair treatment for injured workers.
If you've been hurt on the job, we can help
If you've been hurt in an on-the-job accident, or are suffering from a workplace illness, you have the right to file a claim for workers' compensation. You are eligible for benefits that include coverage for all reasonable and necessary medical treatment for your injury or illness. You are also eligible to receive partial wages while you can't work.
Instead, what actually happens is employers and insurance companies try to keep your payments as low as possible. By law, your employer chooses your doctor, who is often not looking out for your best interests. And insurance companies often question the extent of your injury and even deny payment for certain kinds of treatment.
Aggressive advocate who gets results
Do you need an attorney to file a workers' compensation claim? Your employer and the insurance company might say no. But they have attorneys working for them. You need an experienced workers' compensation attorney working for you. Someone who can give you answers regarding:
Attorney Paul McAndrew knows the tactics that employers and insurance companies routinely use to avoid responsibility. He investigates your injury or illness to gather evidence that helps him build a strong case for benefits. A case that the insurance company can't ignore. He fights for you every step of the way.
If the doctor chosen by your employer downplays your injury, Paul gets a second opinion. If the doctor is not providing adequate treatment, Paul petitions to get you a new doctor. And he fights any attempt by the insurance company to get you to return to work while you are still recovering from your injury or illness.
Don't settle for less, get Paul on your side
As your attorney, Paul is not interested in making a quick settlement with the insurance company. He is committed to getting you the full amount of benefits you should be receiving. Sometimes, he achieves that through negotiation with the insurance company. Sometimes, he fights for you in appeals and hearings at the Iowa Division of Workers' Compensation. And if necessary, Paul will always be there for you in court. He knows how to navigate the workers' compensation system to get results.
