NYC Occupational Claim Lawyers

Your Work Shouldn't Cause a Health Risk

Technological advancements can help you do your job better. However, sometimes those advancements end up hurting you more than they help. You have the right to benefits if you have been injured on the job, even if that injury was caused by an occupational disease.

Your job may require you to work with chemicals that cause you to have respiratory problems, which could result in heart problems. If this happens you should file a workers' compensation claim with New York's Workers' Compensation Board. Even if you can continue to work, you may be considered disabled and, therefore, eligible for benefits now or in the future. Once you file, you are protected regardless of your work status.

If you believe you or your loved one has an occupational disease, call Caruso, Spillane, Leighton, Contrastano, Savino & Smollar, P.C., at 800-673-4517 or contact our New York occupational claim attorneys online. We offer free consultations, and members of our staff speak Spanish, Polish and Russian. We represent injured workers throughout the five boroughs.

Handling Repetitive Motion and Toxic Exposure Claims

If your job requires you to make the same movements over and over again, your body may end up with a repetitive stress injury such as carpal tunnel syndrome or tendinitis. Because the nature of your work caused the damage, you can apply for workers' compensation benefits. You should obtain a diagnosis from your doctor and a substantiating report relating the injury to your job. We can help find a doctor for you who specializes in repetitive trauma or other occupational injuries.

A disease or injury resulting from toxic exposure or a work-related injury is covered by workers' compensation. Our New York lawyers have more than 100 years of collective experience handling workers' compensation insurance claims, involving:

  • Asbestosis
  • Silicosis
  • Mesothelioma
  • Cardiovascular (heart) problems
  • Respiratory (lung) problems
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Tendinitis
  • Cubital tunnel syndrome
  • Nerve compression
  • Toxic exposure

Protecting Your Best Interests at All Costs

Employers are required to pay for insurance to cover workers' compensation claims. Those insurance companies want to protect their bottom lines, not cover your medical expenses and lost time from work. You need our experienced attorneys to help you through the entire process. The earlier we get involved in your claim, the faster you will receive the full amount of benefits you are entitled to.
