Occupational Disease

Minnesota Occupational Disease Lawyer

For most of us, putting on our clothes in the morning and going into work is a part of your daily routine for the past several years. However, what happens if going to work is causing you a serious and often deadly illness? If you have contracted a disease from your work place then this is known as occupational disease and you will be eligible for worker’s compensation. Occupational disease claims are complicated and quite hard to claim.

Occupational Disease and Claims

Occupational diseases often occur due to exposure to a chemical or toxic substance over time. Exposure to asbestos, for example, is a problem for many workers in many different injuries.

Some of the occupational diseases that Mary M Morin can help you with include:

  • Asthma or breathing problems
  • Cancer including lung cancer and mesothelioma
  • Asbestosis due to exposure to asbestos
  • Silicosis due to exposure to silica dust
  • Blood diseases such as lymphoma

Worker’s Compensation for Occupational Diseases

Many insurance companies will offer a quick payout rather than actually assessing your case and the damage done. While a quick payout may seem good for now, what about down the road? Does the payout offer enough money to compensate you and your family for the pain and suffering, for lost income down the road and for the lost retirement and other benefits that come with a regular income? In many instances, the answer will be no.

If you have been diagnosed with a serious illness and you suspect it could be due to your workplace surroundings, then it is important that you speak to a Minnesota work injury lawyer about what happens next. Before you file a claim it is imperative that you have the proof you need and have gone through all the right steps to ensure that your claim will not be denied. As occupational diseases can be difficult to prove, especially as they occur over time and often the disease will take years to form, many insurance companies will find loopholes to deny worker’s claims. Don’t let this happen to you.
