Union Contracts and Your Rights
Our attorneys can review your union contract and advise you of any additional rights, benefits, and protections it may provide. For example, depending on the terms of your contract, you may be entitled to a disability pension or a restoration of sick and vacation time. Some labor unions may also provide special assistance to injured union members, such as help with investigating the accident that caused the employee's injuries.
When union workers are catastrophically injured on construction sites, Workers Compensation is only part of their ability to recover.Â Many injured union workers are also eligible to recover monetary compensation through a "Third Party Claim" or lawsuit.Â You should consult with an experienced construction accident law firm immediately to know whether you have the right to commence a Third Party Claim.Â An experienced construction accident law firm can help you pursue both a Workers Compensation claim and a Third Party Claim so that you receive maximum compensation for your injury.
