Occupational Diseases: When The Hazards Of Work Follow You Home
If you have been injured on the job or suffered an occupational disease as a result of your work environment, you are entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits for your medical bills, lost wages and permanent disability. Though the workers’ compensation system was designed to make it easier for workers to get the benefits they need, it is a highly adversarial process. Without skilled legal counsel on your side, your employer may limit your benefits or deny your claim.
At Becker, Kellogg & Berry, P.C., we will assist you with all aspects of your claim and help you pursue maximum compensation for the losses you have suffered. We also represent the family members of workers who have been killed due to a work accident or occupational illness.
Full-Service Representation For The Victims Of Occupational Diseases
While some work environments, such as construction sites, are more dangerous than others, work injuries and occupational diseases can occur in any type of work setting. Our workers’ compensation team represents people who have suffered all types of injury, including diseases and catastrophic injuries such as broken bones, brain injuries, amputations and death.
Our lawyers will work hard to get you the workers’ compensation benefits that you are entitled to receive for your medical bills, lost wages and permanent disability. Additionally, if your work accident or occupational disease was caused by a third party, we will help you pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent party. Through a third-party claim, you may receive a significantly larger financial award.
