Cumulative Exposure Is Health Risk
Cumulative exposure refers to repetitive tasks done over the course of employment or ongoing hazardous or unhealthy conditions in the workplace. Sometimes, it is not obvious that these injuries or illnesses qualify for workers’ compensation benefits.
Our experienced lawyers at Walters & Zinn, Attorneys at Law, will assess your case to determine if you have a valid claim. If you have a case, we can file a suit for benefits with the employer you have had during the last year — who generally is the responsible party. If you are still employed, in addition to benefits it is also possible to require your employer to make workplace modifications.
Do you have a workers’ compensation claim? Contact us today to find out how we can help you. The initial consultation is free and confidential.
