Union and Non-Union Trade Workers Injured on the Job

LI Union and Non-Union Trade Workers Injured on the Job

Trade Workers Injured on the Job in New York, Suffolk & Nassau

Helping those in the trades get the fullest compensation for their workplace injuries

The American labor movement can trace some of its earliest roots back to New York, where, in 1833, journeymen carpenters staged a strike for a wage increase. Supported by other tradespeople, their demands were finally met. Today, union and non-union carpenters, welders, iron workers, electricians, plumbers, roofers, HVAC specialists and machinists as well as window washers, restaurant workers and others can take continued pride in the contributions they have made to the growth of New York City and New York State.

When you as a trades person suffer injury on the job, you may have special concerns. At the Suffolk law firm of Birzon, Strang, and Associates, we understand your concern that your injury may prevent you from continuing in your line of work. That is why we take great pride in our job, making sure that you get the compensation you deserve and need to support yourself and your family. Our Suffolk workers compensation lawyers are also personal injury attorneys. We investigate every avenue of compensation, including third-party workers comp claims.
