DuPage County Occupational Illnesses & Diseases Law Firm

Maywood Occupational Disease Attorney

Not all job injuries occur in sudden accidents. Many of the worst job-related medical concerns are occupational diseases and disabilities which develop over many years. If you find that you are no longer able to perform your job because of an injury that you developed over any length of time at work, an experienced lawyer can make sure you have access to workers' compensation benefits.

At the Law Offices of Francis J. Discipio, we help people who have developed medical conditions and occupational diseases after years of on-the-job exposure to dangerous elements without proper protection. Sacrificing your health is not part of the employee/employer relationship, and we can make sure you have access to the medial care you need and workers, comp benefits you deserve.

Occupational diseases and conditions can develop in any number of ways. If you work in any type of heavy industry, constant exposure to dangerous chemicals, even in small doses, can lead to skin and lung complications. We represent a wide range of workers who have developed work related illnesses after years of exposure to dangerous toxins or chemicals, including but are not limited to:

  • Asbestos poisoning
  • Lead poisoning
  • Occupational asthma
  • Eczema
  • Skin cancer
  • Breathing & lung problems

Occupational disease claims can be difficult to pursue because they are often hard to monitor and diagnose as they develop. The sooner you see a doctor, the better your chances of getting the benefits you deserve. We will answer any questions you may have about the process and make sure you are taken care of properly.
