Seek Financial Relief for Occupational Illnesses

While many work injuries happen suddenly, such as serious burns or slip-and-falls, other injuries take years to fully manifest themselves. These conditions are known as “occupational illnesses” and can develop as a consequence to a repeated motion or constant exposure. It can be difficult to prove that an occupational illness was caused by your employment, which means that there’s a good chance your initial claim will be denied.

At Smolich & Smolich, we believe everyone deserves a fair chance to have their claim addressed, and we understand that sometimes that requires the assistance of an attorney to ensure your claim is handled properly. Our Sacramento workers’ comp lawyers have helped clients through all types of work-related injuries since we opened our doors in 1969. We understand the necessity of having your claim handled quickly and appropriately so you can obtain the treatment you need to relieve the pain you are dealing with as a result of your occupational injury.

If you are suffering from the symptoms of an occupational illness, call Smolich & Smolich today at (888) 452-0703 and request a free case evaluation!

Types of Occupational Illnesses

Occupational illnesses can come in many forms, and nearly every employment position possesses a risk of one of these injuries happening, even if it is a small one. Therefore, it’s important to analyze your condition and determine if your job may have directly caused it over a long period of time.

  • Some relatively frequent examples of occupational illnesses include:
  • Repetitive motion injuries: carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, or “tech neck,” which is becoming much more common in recent years
  • Cancer: leukemia or lymphoma can develop in those who are frequently exposed to toxic chemicals, particularly those with harmful fumes
  • Skin diseases: Continual contact with erosive chemicals can create all sorts of skin issues, including permanent burns, scaring, or allergic reactions
  • Physical injuries: Continual lifting of heavy objects can result in joint pain, arthritis, back pain, or even illnesses like a hernia

At Smolich & Smolich, we never treat your claim like just another case number. We are motivated by your success, and we work diligently and tirelessly to help you obtain the compensation you are entitled to, so you can get back to living comfortably as soon as possible.
