My Brother in law, Robert, a second year union iron worker apprentice, 9 years non-union, had a devastating work related injury. Workman’s compensation is giving him a difficult time getting the benefits he not only deserve’s, but desperately needs. while Robert fights with the system to get his benefits, he has severely depleted all savings he has accumulated over time. This is where the system fails people like him who get up everyday to put their fears aside and build most of Americas greatest buildings, bridges, and landmarks. Robert has been married to my sister for 9 years and they have two beautiful kids together, A six year old and a 3 year old (who also has ongoing medical issues). For those of you that know him, Know he is a hard working, selfless man, ready to lend help at the drop of a hat. He is not used to asking for assistance from anyone or anything, but when he thought about his kids and not being able to make ends meet, he agreed to let me help put this together for him. He has been injured since July 2nd, when a construction lift crushed his arm, shearing 2 tricep muscles in half, and severing the radial and ulnar nerves in his arm, resulting in radial nerve palsy (paralyzing his hand). He underwent two surgeries already and will have to have two more including nerve, and tendon transfers. Robert has a long road to recovery, and with a little help, we can make it just a little bit easier on him and the kids. Robert would like to thank all those who took the time to read this and/or donate. Robert will keep everyone posted on his progress! GOD BLESS!!
