FILING FOR WORKERS' COMPENSATION FOR OCCUPATIONAL DISEASE OR TOXIC EXPOSURE
Regardless of the industry, your employer has a responsibility to ensure your work environment is safe. There are certain laws and safety regulations which employers are expected to follow. Your employment can lead to injury and/or disease. If you believe you have suffered from an occupational disease or sickness, it is important that you act quickly. You should seek medical care as soon as you notice any symptoms to ensure your health is taken care of.
COMMON TYPES OF OCCUPATIONAL DISEASE
Certain types of working conditions can pose serious threats to your health, such as toxic gas or asbestos. If your workplace is not ventilated properly or if certain chemicals are combined in an enclosed space, it can lead to dangerous absorption or inhalation. Our workers' compensation attorneys have years of experience working on these types of cases and understand how to litigate these injury claims to obtain a successful outcome.
