Many workers are put at great risk when they have to deal with chemicals and other caustic materials.
Here's a quick little "Did You Know" regarding questions we get regarding workers' compensation.
"I didn't report my injury to my employer because I didn't want to lose my job".
We at Loney and Schueller have over 30 years of combined experience specializing in workers' compensation. We know what it takes to ensure you get the compensation you rightfully deserve. We dedicate our energy...our time...and our knowledge to try and help alleviate the burdens that come with suffering a work-related injury.
We don't understand it...you run a company, you have pride in your product, yet, you continually fail to protect your hard-working employees? It's baffling, and we'll never figure out why employers act that way.
If you've been hurt while on the job, your employer's hope is that you'll stay quiet about it...that you won't report it...that you'll just go about your normal workday and hope that the injury just works itself out.
Whenever the use of machinery is required, it is on the employer to ensure that the equipment is properly maintained and that proper safety measures have been taken to ensure the worker's safety.
Horrible accidents occur to workers every day....and too many go unnoticed and unattended to by the employer. Imagine this scenario...you're doing your normal day-to-day routine at work...when you are crushed by a nearly one-ton block of concrete.
Many of our clients tell us time and time again how "in the dark" they were after suffering a work-related accident. They tell us that their employer told them very little (if anything)...and no one seemed to be on their side. No one from the company was there to guide them...and for many of them, they felt like they were being punished for suffering an injury while on the job.
Few experiences are as traumatic as getting injured on the job. In addition to the physical impact and pain you must endure, you will likely be subject to the process of seeking workers' compensation. Both of these processes are highly stressful and can seemingly make recovery even more difficult. Injuries are common on farms, though—and farms are common in Iowa. These farms are not always free from hazards.
Dog bites can leave a victim seriously injured and requiring extensive medical attention. Individuals may also experience emotional trauma, which adds to the stress of the situation.

We can't even imagine....we just saw the story from Australia in which a chain on a crane snapped, causing a bucket of concrete to fall, landing on three employees. Two were lucky to escape with "just" injuries...the third was not so fortunate.
For many of our clients, the injuries they experience in a work-related accident are not short-term fixes. It's more than "just a broken arm or leg"...instead, they are long-term, life-altering injuries.
