At Goidel & Siegel, we have more than 30 years of experience representing construction workers in litigation. We are committed to helping workers settle union-related disputes, securing workers’ compensation, and more.
As a New York union member, you may be entitled to additional protections and benefits after an accident due to your collective bargaining agreement. You also have the right to prevent termination and guarantee your normal health insurance coverage while you are off work for a work-related injury as a union worker. This is why it is crucial to work with a workplace accident lawyer who is familiar with your union, your benefits, and your rights.
If you are a union member who has suffered a serious injury, you deserve an experienced union-friendly lawyer prepared to fight for you. Contact Goidel & Siegel Injury Lawyers today!
At Goidel & Siegel, we understand the many unique facets of an injury case involving a union worker. After a work-related accident, you have many concerns that need to be addressed including your health, financial security, union membership, and job seniority. We are committed to helping you seek the quality medical care you need and the full benefits you are entitled to.
Our law office will assist you with filing a workers’ compensation claim, represent you during hearings and appeals if needed, and explore all avenues to seek full compensation.
We will also help you understand your rights as a union member and how your claim differs from a non-union injury claim.
For instance, many New York union contracts require members receive their full salary during leave for a work injury. By comparison, a non-union workers’ compensation claim only allows two-thirds of your average weekly wage.

Our client fell from scaffolding and sheet metal landed on his knee, causing a nondisplaced fracture, torn meniscus, and torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), which ultimately required a total knee replacement.
