Occupational Diseases and Repetitive Work InjuriesSadler Law Group - New Haven County Workers' Compensation Attorney
New Haven County Workers’ Compensation Attorney for Occupational Diseases and Repetitive Trauma
Not all occupational diseases and repetitive trauma occur from single traumatic events. Sometimes the very nature of your work can leave you diminished, whether it is from years of breathing toxic fumes, or a shoulder injury from thousands of overhead lifts, you may still be entitled to compensation. These types of cases can be complicated, but recovery is often dependent on the strength of the medical documentation and medical opinions.
Help Yourself – Document your Occupational Disease or Repetitive Trauma
To help secure appropriate benefits you should:
- Inform your employer of the injury or disease when it becomes apparent;
- Seek medical treatment;
- Keep medical records as proof of the disease of injury; and
- Where appropriate, document any chemical/toxic exposure that may have caused the injury or disease.
