Indianapolis Work Illness Lawyer

Dealing with a work illness is far from easy. In fact, an occupational disease can leave you without an income and sky-high medical bills to pay. For help with your workers compensation claim, call an Indianapolis workplace illness lawyer.

An occupational disease is an illness or health condition an employee develops because of his or her work environment. No worker is completely free from the risk of becoming ill or injured in some way. Construction workers, factory employees, and even those who work at a desk all day can fall victim to an occupational disease.

The good news is that work-related illnesses should almost always entitle employees to state-mandated workers compensation coverage.

If you choose to work with an Indianapolis work illness lawyer at Crossen Kooi Law, you’ll be able to focus on recovering while we focus on obtaining the workers comp benefits you deserve.

Common Work Illnesses

There are many different types of illnesses you might suffer from because of your job. Numerous occupations routinely see employees develop serious conditions. Some of these illnesses include the following:

  • Mesothelioma
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Respiratory diseases
  • Cancer
  • Tendonitis

This is by no means an exhaustive list of potential occupational conditions. If you believe your illness was directly caused by the work you perform for your employer, speak with an Indianapolis occupational disease lawyer so you can begin the workers comp claim process and determine whether your case warrants the pursuit of a personal injury claim against the liable party.

When Workers Comp Isn’t Enough

Workers compensation benefits are extended to employees who are able to establish that their illness or injury was caused by a work-related incident. These benefits will provide the worker with medical coverage and a portion of his or her lost wages, as well as death benefits for family members in the event of a fatality.

In the case of serious work-related illnesses, work comp benefits sometimes don’t provide enough compensation to make the employee whole again. In this case, you may consider filing a personal injury claim so that all of your damages are accounted for.

You can typically only file a civil personal injury claim if your employer didn’t carry workers comp coverage, if your employer intentionally harmed you, or if a third party other than your employer is found to be liable for your losses.

If you are able to file a lawsuit, you have the potential to recover damages like pain and suffering, the full extent of your lost wages, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of household services, and the loss of companionship and love, to name a few. Your workplace illness attorney in Indianapolis can go over the specifics of your case to determine whether you can pursue your losses in civil court.
