WILG is the national non-profit membership organization dedicated to representing the interests of millions of workers and their families who, each year, suffer the consequences of work-related injuries or occupational illnesses and who need expert legal assistance to obtain medical care and other relief under workers’ compensation programs. WILG is a network of like-minded advocates for workers’ rights, sharing information and knowledge, a sense of commitment and kinship, and networking to help each other and our clients.
WILG was founded in 1995 by a small group of claimants' attorneys and has grown into an organization of nearly 1,000 members representing every state in the nation. Our members include sole practitioners, attorneys from multi-lawyer firms and paralegals. WILG works every day to make sure that as the challenges that face injured workers change, we evolve to meet those new challenges. Workers’ Injury Law and Advocacy Group has grown into an important, national voice for workers. WILG’s members are committed to improving the quality of legal representation to those injured on the job or victims of occupational illness by superior legal education and by keeping informed of legislative and judicial proceedings.
