Injured Construction Workers: Help Is On the Way!

Construction Worker Accidents ScaffoldThe construction industry is inherently a dangerous hotbed for workers. Working with power tools, at extreme heights, on unsteady ladders, and often under unsafe conditions, constructions workers face great dangers every day that they go to work. Injured construction workers face serious pain, devastating emotional trauma and significant financial challenges.

Although, construction workers who are injured on the job have the legal recourse of hiring construction accident lawyers at well-known firms such as Gersowitz, Libo & Korek, P.C., they can also turn to advocacy groups who are dedicated to fighting for their back pay, safety on the job and basic workplace rights.

Construction Workers Defense Project – An Example to Follow

The Workers Defense Project is an example of a worker center advocacy group dedicated to the rights of immigrant construction workers in the state of Texas. Founded in 2002, the center has made it very hard for people, even major corporations like Apple, to oppose them publicly.

The Workers Defense Project is among one of 225 worker centers nationwide aiding many of the nation’s 22 million immigrant construction workers. These centers have become popular mainly due to the labor unions’ failure to organize in construction fields where immigrants have gravitated.

Construction Worker Labor Unions and Work Centers Working Together?

Over the past few years, labor unions have come to recognize that they share similar goals with the worker centers. And as a result, unions are starting to establish an uneasy alliance with many worker centers in the hopes that they might someday help bring immigrant workers into established unions.

In short, worker centers give a voice and bring hope to the many injured construction workers nationwide who need help getting the compensation they deserve for their on-the-job injuries.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
