You’ve worked hard for everything you’ve gotten. Years of training and lots of money to get the skills and expertise to provide a good living for you and your family. Don’t let a work injury that wasn’t your fault take it all away.
The contractors you work for have insurance with some of the biggest, most sophisticated insurance companies in the world. And these insurance companies have a duty to their shareholders, not to the workers who get hurt on the job. That’s who your worker’s compensation case gets turned over to.
Everyone knows union members are highly-skilled and well-trained and worth every penny for their work. Insurance adjusters will target union workers more than others because they know that their high-quality work commands a high wage. Some union members who’ve reached a high-income level think they can handle the worker’s comp system on their own – and why shouldn’t you? You’ve handled everything your whole life and done a great job. But this is different, it is a complex, archaic system of insurance, bureaucracy, administrative law, statutes, regulations, and case law. And there are a lot of quirks in the system that will trip up anyone who doesn’t work in the system regularly.
One mistake could cost you and your family hundreds of dollars in benefits every single week. And after you’ve been hurt, how are you supposed to know that?
That’s why we published The Union Workers’ Guide to D.C. Workers Compensation. So you and your family don’t make that first mistake (and others). It’s short by design, so you can learn the basic questions. And we’re providing this resource – absolutely FREE, with no obligation whatsoever.
