At The Epstein Law Firm, we have helped numerous people obtain compensation for their work-related illnesses and diseases. If you have been exposed to dangerous chemicals at work, or have suffered a repetitive motion injury, we can help.
Types of Occupational Diseases and Work Injuries
At The Epstein Law Firm, we help people throughout New Jersey who have experienced the following types of occupational exposure:
- Asbestos exposure – Asbestos is a known carcinogen, causing a number of cancers including mesothelioma and asbestosis. It is also known to cause a number of other conditions and illnesses.
- Chemical exposure – Any number of diseases and conditions can result from occupational exposure to chemicals. If you or a loved one has suffered respiratory problems, benzene-leukemia, bladder cancer, lung disease, leukemia, or other health problems due to occupational exposure, we can help.
- Repetitive motion injuries – Conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome develop over time as the result of repetitive motions like typing, hammering and assembly and manufacturing work. Other repetitive motion injuries include rotator cuff injuries, bursitis, and tendonitis.
Many people think that the only compensation available for a work-related disease is through workers’ compensation. However, it is possible to file a third-party liability claim against a party responsible for the disease or condition. This could include a chemical company who manufactured a dangerous product.
In workers’ compensation, the amount of compensation available to the injured party may be limited. At The Epstein Law Firm, we explore all possible avenues of compensation available in each client case. We will take the time to understand your situation and seek maximum compensation on your behalf.
