Occupational Disease Claims and Repetitive Stress Injuries

Workers Comp Cincinnati Occupational Disease Claims and Stress Injuries

Helping Ohio workers recover for injuries and illnesses caused by poor working conditions

Exposure to harmful working conditions over long periods can cause injury to workers. While these kinds of injuries and illnesses may be slower to manifest — developing sometimes over the course of years — they are no less serious and sometimes lead to permanent disability or death. Like any other on-the-job injury, occupational diseases and repetitive stress injuries are protected by Ohio workers’ compensation laws and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

The law firm of Weisser & Wolf successfully establishes the medical foundation required to prove that unhealthy workplace environment or activities resulted in illness or injury. Our Cincinnati workers compensation attorneys have more than 70 years of combined experience helping workers across Ohio recover compensation for on-the-job injuries. Our Ohio Bar Certified workers compensation specialists have dedicated their notable careers to workplace safety.

Unhealthy workplace environment

We represent construction workers, factory workers, painters, firefighters, miners, farmers, cosmetologists and other professions whose jobs require daily contact with toxic chemicals and poisonous substances. Even if you work in an ostensibly innocuous office setting, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers poor air quality triggered by sick building syndrome to be a potential cause of serious disease. Our polished negotiators recover compensation through workers compensation settlements for medical treatments, disability, lost income and diminished wages for illnesses, including:

  • Asbestosis-related illnesses
  • Mesothelioma
  • Apoptosis
  • Asthma
  • Silicosis
  • Black lung
  • Respiratory ailments
  • Harmful exposure to fumes
  • Complications due to long-term chemical exposure
  • Cancer resulting from workplace toxins
  • Pulmonary conditions
  • Skin rashes
  • Dermatitis
  • Allergies

Injuries caused by repetitive motions

Performing a certain motion repeatedly over a long period of time can damage your muscles, ligaments and tendons. Chronic soft tissue injures may leave you in extreme pain and unable to work. If you have contracted a repetitive stress injury because your job requires the same constant movement — such as typing, hammering or overhead lifting — we  help you recover, including for:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Meniscus disc damage
  • Arthritis
  • Chiropractic injury
