When Work Leads To Occupational Disease
Not all workers’ compensation claims arise after a single accident. Some workers develop severe, debilitating medical conditions due to prolonged stress, exposure to dangerous chemicals, and other causes.
If you suffer from a disease that was caused or aggravated by work conditions, it is important to talk to a knowledgeable workers’ compensation lawyer. At the Michael Schultz Law Firm, we have extensive experience helping clients who have contracted diseases at work. With law offices in Minneapolis, we serve clients throughout the Twin Cities and across Minnesota.
Did You Develop A Disease On The Job?
There are a broad range of diseases that can be contracted due to work conditions. Some of the most common occupational diseases include:
- Lung disease, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Occupational asthma
- Reactive airway dysfunction syndrome (RADS)
- Heart disease
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Vision and hearing impairment
- Hepatitis and other communicable diseases contracted by medical workers
If you suffer from an occupational disease but your workers’ compensation benefits have been denied, attorney Michael Schultz is here to stand up for your rights. We understand how difficult it can be to continue working when you have contracted a serious disease. We will work tirelessly to help you obtain the compensation you need to pay your medical bills and make ends meet during this difficult time.
