Asserting Your Rights After A Construction Accident

Construction workers face one of the most dangerous work environments. Their work makes them susceptible to work site accidents as well as injuries from simple wear and tear on the body.

They also face the challenge of working in an ever-changing work environment. Every day construction workers may be asked to carry out their duties in a physical space that changes as the construction itself progresses. New trenches may have been dug. New wiring may be in place. To remain safe, a construction worker must be aware of the changes that occur on a site and adapt his or her behavior accordingly.

Workers also face risk from using heavy machinery and power tools such as:

  • Backhoes
  • Cranes
  • Front-end loaders
  • Trenching equipment
  • Dump trucks
  • Saws
  • Drills
  • Welding equipment

Help When You Are Hurt On The Job

At the law office of Mark L. Chipokas PC, I help injured construction workers protect their rights by working to maximize the amount they recover in workers’ compensation benefits.

After an on-the-job injury, a construction worker may be unable to return to work or return to the same position. Injured workers are not obligated to return to the same job. Firing a worker because he or she was injured is known as a retaliatory discharge and is illegal.

I am dedicated to helping injured construction workers secure the full amount of medical and financial support the workers’ compensation system is designed to provide.

Contact Attorney Mark L. Chipokas

If you are injured in a construction accident, you need to recover all of the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve. In Cedar Rapids and Iowa City, I am among the most experienced lawyers you can enlist to help achieve that. To schedule a free initial consultation, call 319-423-8011 or contact my office online.

After being injured on my job and following their every step through physical therapy and still not having the end... results I needed. I contacted Mark and after my meeting with him and his very concerned and gracious team I felt that making Mark my lawyer was going to be the best for me to get the help I needed. It took 1 year of frustration to get my work company to get me the care I deserved. If it wasn't for him and his team fighting for what was right I would have never been able to get the surgery done. I appreciate him and his staff for listening to me when I emailed, called or even stopped in.read more

Mark, Polly and Angela have been there for my husband and I from day one. They have been by my side through every... twist and turn in the alternate universe known as worker’s compensation law. Mark has always been readily available on the phone and in person if I had any questions or concerns. Mark has truly been a God send and I don’t believe I would have had the same outcomes without him. When I thought I had no fight left he was there to fight for me. Because of that fight Mark was able to get me a settlement that has truly been life changing for my family.read more
