Here's even more unfortunate news...this employer is not alone in his actions. You would be horrified to discover just how many employers fail to properly maintain their equipment, or knowingly put untrained workers in dangerous situations. They think saving costs and increasing production outweighs the risk of an employee suffering a work-related injury.
This approach disgusts us, and we won't stand for it.
If you've been injured at work, the best thing to do is call Eric, Randy, or Sarah at 515-225-4485. We find that nearly all of our clients are unaware of how many rights they actually have. These laws are there to protect the employee and to ensure they are properly compensated if an accident should occur.
We will go over your rights with you, and together, we will find the proper course of action to take...and then fight vigorously for your rights. We aren't concerned with your employer being upset with us...we don't represent them in any fashion...we represent YOU.
