When exposure on the job results in the development of a chronic ailment that prevents a person from working, that employee may be suffering from an occupational disease. Occupational diseases are covered by workers’ compensation benefits in both Illinois and Missouri. Insurance carriers may try to claim that the job could not have caused the occupational disease, but our workers’ compensation attorneys have the experience to prove how the disease was really contracted.
At Brown & Crouppen, our experienced workers’ compensation lawyers can help you understand your rights, discuss resources for medical treatment, and make a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. We have more than a quarter century of protecting workers like you.
Did you know? Our firm has recovered more than a billion dollars in personal injury verdicts and settlements. We will also look at any third-party liability claims during the process of workers’ compensation.
Midwest Occupational Disease Lawyers Working for You
There are many occupational diseases that may result from employment, including those caused by exposure to toxic chemicals and other substances such as asbestos. These substances can cause diseases such as cancer, mesothelioma, black lung, and other respiratory conditions.
It is always important to consult with an attorney regarding occupational diseases. Brown & Crouppen will investigate the facts and determine whether you or your loved one has a right to compensation. We will also investigate whether additional benefits such as Social Security disability, Medicare, or private disability insurance payments are available.
We will explain the laws to you, based on the state you live in, and will let you know all of your options for recovering the benefits that you deserve.
