Workers’ compensation benefits are available to individuals who have had to seek medical treatment due to an illness or injury that was obtained on the job.
Illnesses or diseases that are contracted in a work environment can lead to severe health problems, and can require employees to take time off of work to receive treatment. Occupational diseases can affect employees in several different industries.
These diseases can include eczema, repetitive motion injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, lead poisoning, and even cancer. People who suffer from these diseases may be able to earn workers’ compensation benefits if they are able to prove that their illness is directly related to their place of employment.
If an occupational disease has caused you to miss work, you need experienced representation on your side in order to determine if you should receive workers’ compensation benefits. Please contact the workers’ compensation lawyers of Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C. today by calling 215-238-1132 today.
