The impact of WILG
The Workers’ Injury Law & Advocacy Group® (WILG) is a national, non-profit organization focused on advocating for the rights of millions of workers and their families affected by workplace injuries and illnesses each year. Established in 1995, WILG serves as a dynamic network for attorneys and paralegals, providing education, communication, research and information to enhance legal representation for injured workers.
With over 1,100 members from various legal backgrounds across all states, WILG maintains a strong commitment to evolving and meeting the changing challenges faced by injured workers. The organization is dedicated to ensuring high-quality legal services for those injured on the job or suffering from occupational illnesses, staying abreast of legislative and judicial developments to advocate effectively for workers’ rights.
“The organization is important because it provides a greater voice for the injured workers, gives a primary form of defense against unfair laws, and it is my hope during my tenure as President next year we can remain vigilant preventing bad laws, strengthening good laws, and providing hope for those injured workers.“
