Silicosis: Help Securing Workers’ Compensation
At our law offices in Columbus, silicosis litigation attorneys have helped many clients obtain workers’ compensation benefits after they were sickened through toxic exposure on the job. We have grown accustomed to the challenges associated with helping workers who have become ill and disabled through exposure to silicosis and asbestos on the job.
In Ohio, workers face a difficult statute that restricts benefits they can qualify for when exposure to silicosis or asbestos on the job is the cause of illness or disability. Notably, they can receive compensation for silicosis, asbestosis, or coal miner’s pneumoconiosis only if they are totally disabled — or a spouse can receive compensation if a worker has died as a result of exposure. There are no partial disability benefits for this ailment.
Keeping in mind the limitations of benefits available to sufferers of silicosis or asbestos exposure on the job in Ohio, we can reassure our clients of the benefits of our experience. We can help you identify and tap into all resources you are eligible for.
