Occupational Injuries And Diseases

Not all workers' compensation claims stem from a single, traumatic accident or other workplace incident. Occupational diseases frequently arise when people are exposed to high levels of toxic or otherwise dangerous substances for long periods of time or are required to perform the same repetitive motions for hours at a time. Added up over months or even years, these conditions can lead to medical complications as serious as any workplace accident.

There is no need to delay speaking with an experienced lawyer about your injury or illness. We offer a free consultation and accept attorney's fees only when we recover compensation for our clients. Call 800-745-8931 now.

Some of the most devastating disabilities can come about slowly, over time, and still leave individuals unable to do their jobs. Examples of occupational injuries or conditions include:

  • Repetitive stress injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Occupational asthma
  • Skin diseases caused by long-term exposure to chemicals
  • Cancer or asbestosis

At our firm, attorney Anthony J. Murgatroyd believes that anyone who is prevented from working because of injury or illness should receive the maximum benefits available under New Jersey law. If you or a loved one is unable to work because of a work related condition that has developed over weeks, months or even years, we can guide you through every step of the workers' compensation process to help you obtain the benefits you need and deserve.
