Attributing the cause of an injury is not always as easy as it seems. This is especially true in the case of a work related occupational disease. The symptoms and effects of these diseases sometimes do not appear for years after the injured person was exposed to the cause. For this reason, there are a number of people suffering from a work related occupational disease who go without seeking and receiving the help and compensation that they are entitled to.
Factors involved in occupational diseases, include:
- Exposure to a harmful chemical
- Repetitive stress environments
- Unsanitary conditions
- Inadequate safety equipment
What are Common Occupational Diseases?
An occupational disease can be defined as a chronic ailment, illness or injury that is linked to an individual’s work environment or job function.
Common occupational diseases include:
- Lung cancer and mesothelioma
- Lead Poisoning
- Asthma and Silicosis
- Skin disorders
- Carpal Tunnel
The above is just a short list of associated work injuries
If you are not sure whether your illness is related to your workplace environment or past job conditions, contact Simmons Hanly Conroy for a free legal consultation.
Why a Workplace Injury Attorney Can Help
If you have experienced a workplace injury, you may be entitled to compensation to help with loss of income, medical expenses, and long term care expenses. In many cases, a workers compensation claim is filed, and the injured employee receives the damages that are awarded.
Workers Compensation Damages are typically awarded based on:
- Total permanent disability
- Total temporary disability
- Partial permanent disability
- Partial temporary disability
Unfortunately, because of the laws and regulations that govern workplace injuries, receiving the compensation necessary to cover your added expenses is not always so cut and dry.
Depending on the state, time frame, and the nature of the accident, limitations are often placed on damages that can be received and the type of action that can be taken. The Simmons Hanly Conroy can help guide you through this complicated and sometimes overwhelming process. Our injury lawyers will review your case and offer advice on whether you may be entitled to additional compensation. Schedule your free legal consultation today.
