What Makes Union Employee Workers’ Compensation Claims Different?
Unions are valuable because of the protections they provide to employees. If you are a union member, there may be collective bargaining agreements or other special arrangements that dictate the responsibilities of employer and employee after a workplace accident. These arrangements may outline how you must go about getting workers’ compensation benefits. Our Minnesota union employee injury lawyers have worked with arrangements of all types. We know how to navigate through these complexities to get you the benefits you need. We help unionized construction workers, factory workers and machine operators, miners, meat and food packing industry workers and others. If you are a member of a union and you have suffered an on-the-job injury, we are here to help.
Are There Other Types Of Benefits Available?
Union members may also have a group or individual long-term disability policies. These policies are designed to provide financial support in the event that an injury prevents an employee from returning to work. We will help you fight through denied claims to get the benefits that your policy entitles you to.
