Chicago Plasterer and Cement Mason Injury Lawyers

Chicago Trial Lawyer Louis C. Cairo

The legal team at GWC Injury Lawyers is known throughout Illinois as one of the most successful workers’ compensation and personal injury practices in the state. Since 1977, we have recovered more than $2 billion in damages on behalf of our clients and their families.

Over the past four decades, we have developed a highly sophisticated construction accident practice. Our highly skilled lawyers and support staff can help construction workers obtain the workers’ compensation benefits to which they are entitled. We also routinely file third-party claims against non-employers that may have contributed to a workers injury.

Our workers’ compensation lawyers represent all types of building trades union workers, including members of the Operative Plasterers and Cement Masons International Association of the United States and Canada.

OPCMIA: Representing Skilled Illinois Craftsmen and Craftswomen

The Operative Plasterers and Cement Masons International Association of the United States and Canada has represented cement masons and trained plasterers for more than 150 years. Plaster and concrete are some of the most important construction materials in America, and the goal of the OPCMIA is to make sure that skilled craftsmen remain safe at work.

OPCMIA members work on a variety of construction projects and jobsites, including:

  • Commercial and industrial properties
  • Concrete repair
  • Curb and gutter repair and construction
  • Exterior insulation finish systems
  • Fireproofing
  • Decorative and flatwork concrete
  • Highways and roads
  • Historical restoration
  • Residential properties

Plaster and cement are highly dangerous materials when handled improperly. This is why the OPCMIA works to train plasterers and cement masons to meet the safety demands of this increasingly complex industry.

Trusted Lawyers With The Experience You Need

The attorneys at GWC Injury Lawyers are passionate about helping injured building tradespeople get the compensation they deserve. We have helped thousands of workers injured on job sites in cement accidents, ladder falls, collapses, and even on-the-job car accidents.

Although most workplace injuries and illnesses are covered under workers’ compensation benefits, Illinois workers’ compensation law contains many traps designed to make benefits hard to get. Our attorneys know how to effectively handle even the most complex workers’ compensation cases to make sure our clients maximize their recovery.
