Other Occupational Diseases
Occupational Disease Lawyer

Occupational Disease Lawsuit
Every occupational disease lawsuit is different. Our occupational injury lawyers have experience with both the immediate nature of a back injury case involving a fall as result of a defective bolt manufacturing process as well as an asbestos exposure case where an insulator suffered his exposure two and a half decades ago.
A common thread in both types of cases is the statutes of limitations. These statutes affect the period of time during which an injured person can bring forth a suit. The statute of limitations for injury like a fall may start running from the time of injury while an asbestos case’s statute of limitations often starts from the date of diagnosis. Statutes depend upon the details of the case and vary from state to state; we have lawyers licensed to practice in many states and offices in three. One of our occupational lawyers can help you understand the time limits that may affect your case; contact us today.
