Workers’ Compensation For Occupational Asthma
If you have been diagnosed with work-related asthma, Midwest Disability can help. Work-related asthma is asthma caused by exposure to dusts, mists, vapors, fumes or other airborne irritants in the workplace. Our Minneapolis occupational asthma attorneys represent people throughout Minnesota who suddenly suffer from new-onset asthma because of exposure to irritants or allergens at work. We also handle cases involving people who already had asthma, but whose asthma was aggravated due to irritants or allergens in the workplace. With years of experience on our side, no case is too challenging for our attorneys.
Recognizing And Treating Work-Related Asthma
In some cases, work-related asthma is easy to recognize, simply because it flares up while at work and there are obviously large amounts of airborne irritants. In other cases though, the symptoms may not show themselves until hours after exposure. For some people, asthma attacks can be caused by very small amounts of irritants. Work-related asthma is typically reversible, as long as you are properly treated and taken out of the environment that is causing the attacks. Damage to the lungs can become permanent if your occupational asthma is not addressed as soon as possible. We will make certain it is, and help you get the workers’ compensation necessary to cover treatment and wages.
Long-Term Disability Benefits May Also Be Available
Have you purchased a group or individual long-term disability? Even if your asthma attacks are not work-related, you may be able to seek benefits under this policy if the condition prevents you from working. Our lawyers can help you get the needed benefits.
