BAC – Bricklayers Workers Compensation Lawyer
The Law Office of James M. Hoffmann represents injured employees who belong to the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craft Workers.
In Missouri there are 3 unions for the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craft Workers: the Local 15, Local 18 and Local 1. The BAC was founded in 1865 and represents the craftworkers in the trowel trades throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Due to the nature of the profession, there are many occupational demands and health effects for bricklayers and other craft workers. The physical work is very demanding. Bricklayers have to manually transport bricks, blocks and mortar from one place to another. There is a lot of repetitive motion involved. For instance there is the repetitive lifting of one brick with one hand or the repetitive lifting of one block with two hands. This causes an increased risk of lower back pain and cause for lower back injuries and disorders.
In addition to the physical demands, there is a health risk due to the environmental demands. Due to the dust and quartz exposure, bricklayers have an increased risk for developing lung cancer.
