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.

"After being turned down by over 25 other law firms, I was referred to Babcock Law. Stephanie Tucker listened to my case and started to get to work. I had to sign a couple of forms and we had numerous phone conversations. Stephanie and Aiden kept me informed all the way. Very professional, and very understanding about my case. Stephanie was very open and explained the whole process. They fought for me the whole way. I will recommend them to any body that need a great work comp lawyer. I wish i could give them 10 stars."
