Pennsylvania Occupational Disease Lawyers

Helping Workers Get Compensation for Work-Related Illnesses

Pennsylvania has a proud manufacturing and industrial history.

All of us have friends or family members who have worked in factories, mines, chemical production plants, or in industrial environments. Unfortunately, many of us also know (or are) people who suffer from work-related illnesses. Occupational diseases can arise from chemical exposure from working in refineries, pneumoconiosis from working in coal mines, or any variety of heart and lung problems from working in occupations that involve smoke or fire. They can also result from pre-existing conditions that become worse from your line of work. Perhaps the most infamous work-related illness is mesothelioma—a cancer that only arises from inhaling asbestos fibers.

Our Pennsylvania occupational disease lawyers represent workers who have developed job-related illnesses because workers need help. These men and women give decades of their life to employers, helping them keep their doors open. When they suffer from the consequences of that work, companies should be the first to step up and provide for their medical care and financial stability.

Did you develop an illness related to your job? Speak with Handler, Henning & Rosenberg to find out if you have a case. We’ve been winning hundreds of millions for Pennsylvania residents since 1922.

What Counts as an Occupational Disease?

According to the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry, whether or not a company is liable for damages after a diagnosis depends on multiple factors. Even if your particular illness doesn’t appear on the list provided by the Department, you may still have a case.

The questions to ask yourself are:

  • Were you exposed to the disease while working?
  • Is the disease caused by the employee’s industry or occupation?
  • Are the odds of developing the disease higher in your industry than in the general population?

Proving exposure is only part of your claim. Our attorneys also have to prove that exposure caused your symptoms or led to your diagnosis, or we’d have to establish that your industry has a higher rate of that particular disease than anywhere else. Once we’ve done that, you might be able to recover what you need: past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and perhaps more.

Call (888) 498-3023 to Review Your Case. Serving Carlisle, Hanover, Harrisburg, York & Lancaster.

There’s no way to casually know if you have a case or not. You need someone with experience handling these cases to look at the facts of your case, to investigate what happened to you and why.
