Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses

Our work injury lawyers here at Strom Yen Injury Attorneys know that not every job-related injury or illness is obvious. Most injuries from a construction accident or a work-related car accident such as broken bones, brain injury or paralysis, are fairly easy to attribute to the event. However, other injuries may be more difficult to connect to the workplace for the fact that it can take quite a while for them to surface. These include the following:

Lifting injuries

Repetitive stress injuries

Injuries requiring surgery

injuries connected to repetitive stress like carpal tunnel or injuries that were minor at the time they were incurred and then developed into a more serious condition.

Occupational illness or disease

illnesses like asbestosis, cancer and respiratory diseases can occur decades after the employee was exposed to a dangerous substance.

Emotional or mental illness

can be attributed to the witnessing of a traumatic event in the workplace or through other work-related factors.

To make sure you have a strong case for workers’ compensation benefits, our staff will conduct a thorough investigation into your illness or injury. This may include collecting medical evidence, talking to co-workers and finding expert witnesses to testify on your behalf.

Your Best Interests

Many workplace injuries can have serious consequences that may leave you unable to return to work for months or years. In some cases, the injury or illness may be so severe that you are left permanently disabled. Our workplace injury attorneys here at Strom Yen Injury Attorneys always keep your best interests in mind, focusing on what you need now and in the future.
