Am I still eligible for workers’ compensation benefits even though I didn’t receive a diagnosis of mesothelioma until after I had already left the job where I was exposed to asbestos?
The symptoms of mesothelioma — like those of many occupational illnesses — often do not manifest until many years after your exposure to the conditions that caused your condition. You may still be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits and possibly have other causes of action as well.
I was diagnosed with a repetitive stress injury, but was not involved in an accident. Can I still recover benefits through the workers’ compensation program?
Repetitive stress injuries develop over time as soft tissue is slowly damaged because of your continual performance of the same repetitive movement. Usually, the injury cannot be traced back to one definitive traumatic event, but you may still qualify for workers’ compensation by proving that the injury occurred because of your job-related tasks.
Can I sue my employer for my workplace injuries?
Certain intentional torts give rise to a civil claim against your employer.
Am I entitled to any damages in addition to workers’ compensation benefits?
Negligent third parties may have contributed to your on-the-job injury. If you were engaged in a job-related activity when you were injured in an automobile accident, slip and fall or dog attack, or defective equipment or a reckless coworker was responsible for the accident, you can file a lawsuit in civil court, even if you are receiving workers’ compensation payments.
What should I do if my claim is denied?
Contact a qualified workers’ compensation lawyer immediately if your claim is denied. You may have as little as 14 days to file your appeal.
