Diseases that arise from the workplace may be covered under workers’ compensation, but there are special rules that must be followed. If you have a work-related disease, you will see better results if you work with a lawyer who has experience with occupational diseases. Attorney has been representing workers suffering from occupational diseases since 1978.
Occupational diseases can include:
- Sulfuric acid exposure
- Benzene exposure
- Hepatitis infection resulting from a needle stick in a hospital setting
- Asbestos exposure
- Mold exposure
Proving that your condition is a viable occupational disease requires extensive knowledge and experience. Attorney has a thorough understanding of occupational diseases and will pay personalized, thorough attention to your case to determine whether you have a viable claim.
Insurance companies will often investigate your case to determine that you had a pre-existing condition, and that the employer is not responsible for your illness. A skilled lawyer is essential for combating tactics like these.
