When a person is injured while they’re at work, they need someone who will be in their corner and help them to receive the compensation they need to get by. This is especially true while they can’t work. Those who help injured workers receive this compensation deserve respect.
Occasionally, there are attorneys that emerge who go above and beyond in the world of workers’ compensation. In these instances, the President’s Award from Workers’ Injury Law & Advocacy Group is the highest that can be achieved.

Recipients of the President’s Award typically receive their award at the annual convention. But due to COVID-19, this year’s 25th annual convention took place over Zoom as a virtual event on Tuesday, October 6th.
What is WILG?
Workers’ Injury Law & Advocacy Group (WILG) is a national organization of lawyers who specialize in representing injured workers in need of filing workers’ compensation claims. WILG was founded in 1995 with the directive to ensure that the millions of workers and their families who need assistance obtain compensation after being injured at work or developing an occupational disease from their job.
Since its founding, WILG has become a vital partner in the fight to provide a voice to workers across the country. WILG also works to ensure that attorneys and the various non-profit groups working to assist injured workers have the resources (including education, research and information) needed to get them the compensation they need.
Moreover, WILG is an entire network of individuals, attorneys and nonprofits that strive to advocate for workers’ rights. They do this by sharing the information and knowledge they’ve gathered amongst one another with a sense of kinship and commitment to not only their clients, but to one another as well.
