The Specifics Of Union Worker Injuries

Unlike nonunion members, a member union's contract might include additional benefits to which a worker might be entitled. For example, we can help you find doctors who are in-network for your company's insurance policy, as well as help clear up any misinformation about your rights under your contract.

We will also review your case to determine if you should file a third-party liability claim to maximize the compensation you might be owed.

Construction Site Dangers And Common Injuries

Employers and third parties have a responsibility to ensure all safety regulations are followed. Violations of workplace safety protocols are a significant cause of unnecessary union worker injuries each year, and it is our job to hold any negligent party accountable for his or her actions.

Injuries for which we can help you obtain compensation include:

  • Injuries sustained from cranes and aerial lifts
  • Falling off of a ladder, building or bridge
  • Injuries caused by unsafe or defective equipment
  • Being struck by a falling object
  • Burns, cuts or broken bones
  • Any other on-the-job injury
