Workplace accidents and occupational diseases can both cause significant harm. While they may differ in definition, they can both cause immense pain and suffering. This can then lead to missed work, lost wages, large hospital bills and permanent medical conditions.
At Larrimer & Larrimer, LLC we have been helping injured workers in Columbus, Ohio since 1929. Our practice focuses on workers compensation. We can help you whether your claim is from a work injury or an occupational disease you contracted at work.
Any type of injury at work could qualify as a work injury, whether you are a construction worker or an office worker. Some workplace injuries may be extremely severe such as spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injuries. However, less serious afflictions like carpal tunnel syndrome, strains or sprains may also qualify for workers compensation benefits if they happen during work and/or on the premises of your workplace.
Even if a work accident was your fault, you may still qualify to receive benefits for lost wages and medical bills. Qualifying work injuries may also be the result of repetitive motion and, therefore, not involve any type of single incident as their cause.
Certain high-risk occupations could include workers facing daily exposure to dangerous chemicals or conditions. However, any chronic illness which occurs due to working conditions, work environment and/or as a result of the work you do, may be an occupational disease.
These include but are not limited to:
If you suffer from these or any other diseases resulting from your job, then you may qualify to receive workers compensation. Our law firm can evaluate your medical and employment records to see if we can establish a direct link.
