Compensation for Lung Disorders in Phoenix

Guidance from Our Phoenix Workers' Compensation Attorneys

Lung diseases and disorders can be sustained through an injury or by contracting a disease from the individual's place of employment. An individual's workplace can hold serious hazards that result in respiratory disorders. When an employee is daily exposed to irritants and toxins within his or her workplace, lung disorders can result. Some substances that commonly damage the lungs are:

  • Vapors
  • Sprays
  • Gases
  • Fumes
  • Smoke
  • Dust

Many of these irritants can lead to breathing and respiratory conditions that are a direct cause of the workplace environment. If you have suffered occupational disease or injury from a condition at your workplace, we encourage you to speak with one of our Phoenix workers' compensation attorneys at once.

Phoenix Workers' Compensation Lawyers Explain Lung Diseases

Workers sustain diseases and disorders from various places of employment. People who work in a coal mine, motor vehicle manufacturing plant or cement factory are especially susceptible to lung disease. Lung diseases, including those caused by asbestos, may entitle the employee to workers' compensation benefits. When an occupation holds hazards that lead to disability caused by lung disease, our firm can help you pursue restitution. Many lung disorders can be classified as occupational diseases because they arise during employment. Long-term exposure to hazardous irritants on the job can result in serious lung disorders that have lasting effects on the worker.

Compensation for Occupational Diseases

Lung disorders are serious occupational diseases that require medical attention and may result in lost time at work. In some cases, workers who have suffered lung disease may be entitled to monetary assistance through workers' compensation. In the state of Arizona, employers are required by law to hold this type of insurance for their employers. If you have suffered a work-related lung disease, our Phoenix workers' comp lawyers can help you file a claim for workers' compensation benefits in Flagstaff, Prescott, or any other city in Arizona.
