Legal assistance with all kinds of occupational illnesses

Asbestos has gained a significant amount of infamy in the past few years because of the significant risks they pose to the health and wellness of those who work around them. It is a proven fact that continued exposure to asbestos can lead to lung cancer and other types of illnesses. Because of this, asbestos has become somewhat of a buzzword for workers' compensation cases seeking to make use of benefits.

The threat of asbestos is serious, but it is important to remember that not everyone works around asbestos, and asbestos is certainly not the only type of hazardous material to which one can be exposed on the job. Hazardous chemicals can also cause injury or illness, as well as can other substances such as lead and mercury or even mold and pesticides.

It is important to raise awareness about asbestos and ensure that those who have suffered an illness due to asbestos exposure receive the compensation they deserve. However, it would be terrible for a victim of a different type of exposure to believe that he or she has no claim simply because his or her job does not involve exposure to asbestos. If you work around any kind of dangerous material or hazardous chemical, monitor your health closely and be aware of any unexpected diseases.

There are many jobs in New York that may expose an individual to such substances, but in order to receive workers' compensation for any illnesses suffered on the job, one must prove that the exposure to the dangerous materials was truly what caused the illness. That is where we come in. If you believe that your job exposed you to dangers that led to illness, visit our webpage to learn how we can help you make a case to recover the compensation you deserve.
