Workers’ Compensation Lawyers for Injured IAMAW Members

Chicago Trial Lawyer Louis C. Cairo

Illinois residents who suffer a workplace-related illness or injury are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act. But recent changes to Illinois workers’ compensation law are designed to benefit employers and insurers by restricting the rights of injured workers. Workers who fail to consult with experienced workers’ compensation attorneys before filing their claim can lose benefits by falling into common traps.

The attorneys at GWC Injury Lawyers have helped injured workers recover workers’ compensation benefits since 1977. We are one of Illinois’ largest workers’ compensation firms, and we specialize in representing injured union workers. We are familiar with the types of work conditions that union workers experience and are therefore better suited to serve union clients than other law firms are.

Our attorneys handle all types of union member workers’ compensation cases, including those involving members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers.

Protecting the Rights of Machinists and Aerospace Workers

The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers is an AFL-CIO-affiliated trade union that represents approximately 720,000 machinists and workers in the aerospace and airline industries.

The IAMAW has several goals, including promoting safe workplace environments, supplemental unemployment benefits, equal pay for men and women, and cost-of-living increases for its members. The union also helps workers negotiate and enforce collective bargaining agreements.

Illinois IAMAW members fall into the union’s Midwest territory, which includes more than 117,000 active members. The union continues to successfully represent its diverse array of employees in Illinois by helping them organize and effectively address workplace grievances.

One of Illinois’ Premier Workers’ Compensation Law Firms

The legal team at GWC Injury Lawyers is proud to be one of the premier workers’ compensation law firms in the state. Our attorneys routinely speak at union shops and events to educate workers on their workers’ compensation rights.

Although every worker is entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for a workplace injury or illness, these rights can be easily lost if handled by the wrong law firm. Our large legal team has resources and experience that smaller firms simply cannot match. Our attorneys help make sure that your case is efficiently resolved so you receive all of the benefits to which you are entitled.
