Boston Union Worker Injury Lawyer

Trade Unions Will Often Provide Representation To A Worker, However It Is Wise To Hire Independent Legal Counsel.

Boston Union WorkerOrganized labor has helped to significantly improve the lives of many men and women by providing not just higher wages but also better benefits. Unions have also forced employers to make worksites safer for workers. Less advantageously, unions have become large, politically run organizations. As a result, when accidents occur in the workplace, unions frequently try to direct members to attorneys and law firms that are politically affiliated with the union, and these attorneys are often not able or not willing to focus on the needs of injured parties. The Law Offices of Gerald J. Noonan has experience helping injured union members who want the assistance of independent legal counsel that has their best interests in mind.

The Difference Between Non-Union and Union Workers

When non-union workers in Massachusetts are injured, there are both state and federal laws that are designed to protect their rights. When union workers are injured on the job, though, there are often protections that extend beyond basic worker’s rights. One of these rights is that while pursuing compensation for a work-related injuries, the trade union will often provide representation to the worker. A worker, however, can retain the services of independent legal counsel, which is a wise idea as union representatives usually have agendas and interests in mind which might not be harmonious with a worker’s pursuit of compensation.

Protection of Worker’s Rights After an Accident

Many union workers believe that their rights are automatically protected by the union after an accident occurs, but this is not always true. As a result, workers should make sure to obtain legal representation early on. Waiting to obtain representation only makes it more difficult for workers to obtain compensation.
