When it come to Union Workers' injury claims the process can be long and complex. Most organized labor unions have procedures in place for workers compensation claims that differ from the normal procedure, called Alternative Dispute Resolution. This means that the process is mediated through the unions. Most union workers let the union advocate for them to determine their medical care and benefits but as a union employee/member you are always entitled to pick out your own lawyer to ensure your rights and benefits are protected. The advantages to having a lawyer on your side include navigating the complex procedure for you, obtaining you the best value possible for your settlements and making sure you receive any benefits you are entitled to.
