Serious Work-Related Injuries

Des Moines Workers’ Compensation Attorneys: Representing Victims of Serious Work-Related Injuries in Iowa

Most people believe that construction, highway, medical and manufacturing workers are at the highest risk of sustaining a serious on-the-job injury, and in many instances they are right. However, every employee — whether he or she works at a restaurant or a retail store — is susceptible to life-changing injuries. For example, falling down the stairs at work could result in spinal cord damage or brain injury, and serious cuts can result in nerve damage that require years of physical therapy.

In each of these instances, the help of an experienced workers’ compensation attorney can be essential for obtaining the benefits and medical care you need.

Other serious work-related injuries include or are caused by:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Falling from heights
  • Back, knee and other joint damage (often from overexertion)
  • Falling objects
  • Vehicular accidents, including third-party liability claims
  • Machine-related injuries, including manufacturing equipment
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals

Whatever your situation, the Beattie Law Firm will be by your side and will see that you receive all benefits that are available to you. We will also ensure that your employer does not seek retribution because you filed a work comp claim — an act they are forbidden to do by law.
