Workers’ Compensation Representation for Building Trades Workers

Chicago Trial Lawyer Louis C. Cairo

The workers’ compensation lawyers at GWC Injury Lawyers are passionate about helping Illinois construction workers and building trades professionals. Since 1977, we have become not only one of the largest personal injury law firms in the state, but also the top representative of injured building trades workers.

Our workers’ compensation lawyers represent more union workers than any other law firm in Illinois. We have successfully advocated for workers’ compensation clients from nearly all Illinois unions, including the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades of the United States and Canada.

IUPAT: Representing Painters and Allied Tradesmen Throughout Illinois

The IUPAT has several Illinois chapters spread throughout the state. Locations with IUPAT local chapters include:

The Top Building Trades Workers’ Compensation Firm in Illinois

The legal team at GWC Injury Lawyers is recognized as one of Illinois’ most successful workers’ compensation and personal injury practices. We have recovered more than $2 billion on behalf of thousands of union workers.

Our firm has the financial resources and extensive support staff necessary to efficiently resolve workers’ compensation claims. Many smaller firms are unable to quickly get their clients’ cases to trial. We know how important the resolution of a workers’ comp case is to a building trades worker, which is why we work tirelessly to get our clients the workers’ compensation benefits to which they are entitled.
