Workers in specific industries are at risk of developing occupational lung diseases, including the conditions of pneumoconiosis, silicosis, and byssinosis. These diseases can cause life-long complications for workers and have the potential to result in death. If you have been diagnosed with a lung disease that you believe is directly related to your exposure to certain substances while working, our experienced workers’ compensation attorney, Jan Hoen of Hampton Injury Law, can help you to understand your rights and seek the compensation you deserve.
Workers in certain industries may be exposed to certain substances that increase the risk of or cause the following lung diseases.
Workers who have sustained occupational lung disease, including the three conditions listed above and others (such as mesothelioma), deserve to be compensated for their harm. In many cases, workers are eligible to seek benefits through their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance system. However, proving that the condition would not have resulted but for exposure to certain substances on the job, and bringing forth a claim within the required amount of time, are two common obstacles to receiving benefits.
In some cases, a worker may also be able to bring forth a third-party liability claim against another party whose negligence led to the worker’s exposure and lung disease. Our attorney can help you to understand the difference between third-party liability claims and workers’ compensation claims and help you to bring forth a lawsuit when appropriate.
Attorney Jan Hoen cares about you and wants to help you recover the compensation you are entitled to if you have been diagnosed with occupational lung disease. To schedule a free consultation and learn more about your options, contact Hampton Injury Law online or by phone today.
