Chicago Plumbing and Pipe Fitter Work Injury Lawyers

Attorney Michael B. Goldberg

Any member of a building trade such as pipefitting knows how important and potentially dangerous the construction industry is. All workers at construction sites and jobsites are exposed to a variety of serious injuries. The types of workplace injuries vary by jobsite, but can include injuries from falls, machinery accidents, cave-ins, and explosions.

Building industry workers are also often exposed to a variety of workplace illnesses from working with materials such as asbestos pipes. These illnesses may manifest themselves in the form of deadly cancers such as mesothelioma years after an employee has left a jobsite.

The legal team at GWC Injury Lawyers represents injured Illinois pipefitters and other building trade workers in workers’ compensation cases. We are one of the largest workers’ compensation law firms in Illinois and represent more union workers than anyone else in the state.

Our knowledge of the working conditions typical for union workers makes us better positioned to take your case. We have an aggressive litigation style to make sure we maximize the results of all of our union clients, including members of the United Association.
