New Construction, New Risks

According to a recent census, Des Moines is one of the fastest growing cities in the Midwest. On average, Des Moines welcomes 33 new residents each day. With all the new arrivals, more and more housing options are needed. It's becoming more and more common as you head west to see new housing developments and soon-to-be construction sites.

With all this new construction, it's the workers that will take on the risk of doing the job. 

Even the most veteran of construction workers face daily risks on the job site...

  • falls from beams and ladders
  • accidents with heavy machinery
  • accidents with tools
  • falling tools and machinery

Those are four of the most common construction site accidents that result in injury, but there are countless more.

We were doing some home improvements a week ago, and dropped a hammer on our foot. It didn't break, but we were laid up for a day or so...for a construction worker, that's a missed day at work...and, if not properly treated, that injury could linger and become something even more severe. 

We at Loney & Schueller pride ourselves on our ability to fight for the injured worker. Far too often, injured workers find themselves at the mercy of bullying employers who intimidate their employees into thinking that filing a workers' compensation claim is wrong...and an "attack" on the company.

This is NOT the case. You, the worker, have rights. Rights that can not be taken away from you...rights that you should exercise if you suffer a workplace injury.

Eric, Randy, and Sarah are committed to fighting for you.

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.
