Welcome UWUA 132 Members
Have You Been Hurt at Work?
Work can be fun and fulfilling, but it can also be dirty and dangerous. And some days, despite your best efforts, you may find the scales are not tipped in your favor.
Let GEKLAW attorneys Sherry Grant and Erika Vargas help guide you through the ever-changing workers' compensation system. Or, if you don't want to take formal action, but just want advice, they are here for you as well.
Keep in mind, workers' compensation is a no-fault system. By filing a claim, you are not suing your employer, the Southern California Gas Company. Instead, you are simply filing a claim for benefits, including:
- Temporary Disability
- Permanent Disability
- Medical Treatment
This is where attorneys Sherry Grant and Erika Vargas come in. Not only are they knowledgeable, experienced workers' compensation attorneys, but they are also well versed in how UWUA 132 members can be impacted by the benefits and conditions outlined in the Southern California Gas Company union contract, including:
- Industrial Accident Allowance
- Return-to-Work Provisions
- Monthly Benefits
- Maximum Benefit Duration
- Light-Duty Options
Workplace injuries can happen in an instant or can build up gradually. Either way, they are serious business that call for serious legal representation—attorneys that can help you through a very difficult time. In order to best serve your needs, Sherry Grant and Erika Vargas are available for free consultations at your union office Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to noon (subject to change in the event of an emergency). Please call UWUA 132 at 909-305-9802 to make an appointment.
