Workplace injuries can happen in any business, though certain industries are more prone to them than others. Workplace injury statutes cover both physical injuries and diseases caused by workplace conditions, such as mesothelioma. If you were hurt on the job, you are likely concerned with your recovery, but it’s important to retain legal counsel as soon as possible to make sure you file your claim before the legal deadline passes.
Some diseases may take years to show symptoms and may not appear until after you’ve retired. Despite the time elapsed between exposure and diagnosis, you may still be eligible for financial compensation.
If you have been injured or gotten sick as a result of your occupation, contact us at James F. Humphreys & Associates, L.C. today for a free case consultation.
Is It Too Late?
Unfortunately, this answer isn’t a simple one and depends on the injury or disease involved. Workplace injuries are governed by statutes of limitations which declare how long victims have to file a claim after the incident occurs. To find out if you are still within the timeframe, call us today toll free or contact us online to set up a consultation for your case.
Asbestos Statutes of Limitation
The diseases caused by asbestos are not immediately apparent. In fact, it’s not uncommon for someone exposed to asbestos to go many years without any symptoms. When mesothelioma, lung cancer or other problems do arise, however, they can be deadly.
