Occupational Diseases Qualify For Workers’ Comp

Not every valid workers’ compensation claim arises out of a single event such as a fall, an injury suffered suddenly while lifting, or an equipment malfunction. Some very serious, painful and even fatal diseases that develop over time under certain working conditions are specifically recognized in the North Carolina workers’ compensation statute as occupational diseases.

Strong, Dependable Advocacy For Injured And Disabled Workers

At The Law Offices of John M. McCabe, P.A., our skilled attorneys help people suffering from occupational diseases pursue and obtain all available workers’ compensation benefits, including payment for all reasonably necessary medical treatment and benefits for lost wages. Our Raleigh occupational disease lawyers’ knowledge and experience extends to work comp filings, hearings and appeals on behalf of people suffering from:

  • Disabling conditions caused by repetitive motion, repetitive stress or “cumulative trauma” in the course of performing job duties — including carpal tunnel syndrome, nerve disorders such as RSD and CRPS, certain shoulder and knee injuries, and more
  • Brain damage, lung diseases and skin disorders contracted through exposure to toxic chemicals or other harmful substances in the workplace

Was Your Claim Unfairly Denied? Need Filing Guidance Upfront?

Whether your need for workers’ compensation benefits is accident-related or due to the onset and diagnosis of an occupational disease, it is important to know that obtaining those benefits can be a long, challenging process. Work comp insurance companies deny many claims initially, resist and delay paying medical bills, and engage in other strategies focused on limiting payouts and maximizing profits.

Proving that your occupational disease is legitimate, that it resulted from performing your work duties, and that you cannot continue working can be a complex endeavor. Our firm has built a strong track record of obtaining benefits for manufacturing, assembly and warehouse workers, truck drivers and others suffering from serious occupational diseases.
