Workers’ compensation insurance covers employees who were injured in workplace accidents and those who developed work-related illnesses or conditions. If your job caused or contributed to a medical condition that prevents you from working, you should contact experienced workers’ compensation attorney Jeffrey M. Bloom at the Law Offices of Jeffrey M. Bloom in West New York.
Compensation for Workplace Injuries, Work-Related Conditions
Our law firm provides representation in workers’ compensation claims involving:
Our law firm represents clients who have sustained a wide range of workplace injuries, including:
Repetitive motion injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis from performing the same motion repeatedly. We often see people with overuse injuries from repeated lifting or spending long hours keyboarding.
Occupational exposure to toxins, from asbestos to cancer-causing chemicals. These diseases can take decades to develop. But if your condition was caused by work-related exposure, workers’ compensation should cover your medical care.
Neck and back injuries, from whiplash to herniated discs to spinal cord injuries
Aggravation of pre-existing conditions to the point where you can no longer perform the duties of your job.
Respiratory injuries, including cancer, asthma, asthmatic bronchitis, COPD, reactive airwaves disease (RAD), asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, and other pulmonary conditions and lung diseases
Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), also known as complex regional pain syndrome
Physical injuries that lead to psychological conditions
Closed head injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries and post-concussion syndrome
Other injuries, such as shoulder injuries, rotator cuff injuries, fusions, joint problems, amputations, as well as secondary problems such as peripheral nerve injuries.
Our workers’ compensation lawyer works with respected medical experts to document the nature and extent of your injuries — even hard-to-prove injuries and conditions that do not always appear on X-rays or MRIs.
Mr. Bloom will carefully evaluate the circumstances surrounding your injury in order to determine whether you are also eligible to file a personal injury claim. When appropriate, this strategy can help you maximize the value of your compensation.
