  • Nursing home workers

The legal team at GWC Injury Lawyers is passionate about helping injured SEIU members. We have represented union workers who suffered a variety of workplace injuries, including repetitive motion injuries, slip-and-fall injuries, broken bones, crushing injuries and herniated disks, among others.

It is important to speak with an experienced workers compensation attorney before filing a workers comp claim because Illinois law requires workers to follow very specific steps to receive benefits. Any mistake in filing a workers comp claim can result in the worker losing his or her right to recover all benefits.
