Many workers on Staten Island and throughout New York work in industries that use chemicals. Exposure to certain dangerous chemicals throughout a career can lead to occupational diseases, which are defined by the New York Workers’ Compensation Board as an illness that is the result of conditions a worker is exposed to during the natural course of his or her work.
If you or a loved one is suffering from an occupational illness due to chemical exposure, it is in your best interest to discuss your legal options with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney from Angiuli & Gentile, LLP. We provide personalized service and skilled representation to injured workers, focusing our efforts on obtaining the full workers’ compensation benefits they are entitled to for wage loss, medical expenses and other damages.
