Every workers’ compensation injury is related to some sort of on-the-job incident or incidents. However, there are a number of injuries that are exacerbated and heightened by specific aspects of one’s employment. It is important to choose a lawyer who has experience representing individuals with these industry-specific on-the-job injury claims.
Our firm is led by a Certified Workers’ Compensation Law Specialist with over 40 years of proven courtroom experience. We are not afraid to take a case to trial if necessary and are always committed to protecting the rights of injured workers.
Some injuries are stress-related while others are orthopedic in nature, but many injuries are due to simple slip-and-fall accidents or lifting heavy objects. In addition, there are other occupational hazards that are subject to industry-specific workers’ compensation benefits.
Workplace Disease/Occupational Disease
If you work in certain industries or jobs, you are often more susceptible to workplace injury or diseases. For example, hair dressers, cleaning professionals and mechanics are often subjected to chemicals that can lead to skin diseases. Catering professionals and factory workers often deal with electrical shocks, burns or lacerations. If you work in the health care industry, you could at any time contract a disease or suffer from an abrasion, incisionor needle puncture.
Our firm has helped countless individuals seek workers’ compensation benefits for these and other occupational injuries. We have also had success seeking claims for workers suffering from residual injuries such as:
- Internal injury
- Ringing in the ears
- Loss of hearing
- Loss of vision
- Headaches and migraines
- Occupational asthma
- Lung disease
- Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)
- Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD)
- Hand-arm vibration syndrome
Our attorneys have also handled a large number of construction worker accidents. We can seek a beneficial resolution to any number of incidents, including crane accidents, car accidents, amputations, toxic exposure to asbestos and other chemicals, brain injuries or building collapses.
