The attorneys at GWC Injury Lawyers have represented Illinois workers since 1977. We have recovered more than $2 billion in compensation on behalf of our clients because we have the skills and resources to help resolve workers compensation claims efficiently.
Our attorneys are routinely asked to come speak at local union chapters about the workers compensation process and workers rights. Workers compensation can be a complex area of law and there are many traps written into Illinois workers compensation law that can result in injured workers losing their rights to recover benefits.
We actively seek to educate union members regarding their workers compensation rights so they do not unnecessarily forgo any workers compensation benefits they may be entitled to. GWC attorneys handle workers compensation cases involving all types of Illinois union members, including the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.
IBEW Members Belong to Many Trades
A wide array of Illinois workers are represented by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. The IBEW represents about 675,000 workers nationwide in a variety of fields, including utilities, telecommunications, construction, manufacturing, broadcasting, railroads and government employees.
The IBEW strives to improve working conditions for all of its members. All IBEW chapters are run democratically and work to help employees negotiate collective bargaining contracts that cover issues such as wages, time off and workplace safety issues.
Representing Injured IBEW Workers in Workers Comp Cases
Many of the workers that the IBEW represents work in building and manufacturing trades. There are many serious workplace injuries associated with accidents in these trades, including broken bones, amputation, spine injuries and brain injuries. Although the majority of workers compensation cases do not involve catastrophic injuries, it is still important to consult with an experienced attorney who is capable of handling your workers compensation case in a diligent and thorough manner.
The legal team at GWC Injury Lawyers has years of experience representing injured union members, including members of the IBEW.
