Obtaining Compensation for an Occupational Disease

Colorado workers' compensation attorney can help you obtain full compensation for an occupational disease

An occupational disease is a type of on-the-job injury that occurs over time and not as a result of a particular incident. It is said that if performing your job causes a chronic ailment that prevents or hinders you from performing your job fully, you have an occupational disease.

A person affected by an occupational disease is supposed to report the condition to their employer as soon as they know about it.

Tasks that require you to use force repetitively or expose yourself to harmful Asbestos or other toxic substances can, over time, lead to certain occupational diseases.

Examples of common occupational diseases include:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Contact dermatitis
  • Chronic encephalopathy
  • Thoracic outlet syndrome
  • and more

Many employers and workers' compensation insurers make it very difficult for you to obtain the necessary treatment to deal with your ailments. When they cannot see an injury, they may question what caused the condition or whether it was a workplace injury in the first place.

This is where an experienced Colorado workers' compensation attorney can be a big help.

If you're suffering from an occupational disease and finding difficulty in obtaining your lawful benefits, please contact Denver workers' compensation lawyer R. Mack Babcock today for a free consultation.
