The income loss can make it very challenging to provide normal necessities for yourself and your family.

Our Attorneys Will Handle Your Workers’ Compensation Case in Alton, Illinois

Attorneys with the Walton Telken Foster law firm will handle all of the detailed aspects of your workers’ compensation case (including some aspects you may not have considered, and may not be able or willing to do yourself), including:

  • Investigation of the scene of the accident
  • Gathering evidence

  • Get you covered for any medical treatments or rehab you may require
  • Negotiate and litigate on your behalf
  • Pursue any other benefits to which you may be entitled, such as FELA, Jones Act, SSI, and SSDI


Occupational Diseases and Illnesses

If you have had a doctor diagnose you with an occupational disease or illness (such as one of those listed below), you may also be awarded some monetary damages, since simply working your job should never cause you serious harm.

  • Inhaling asbestos can cause asbestosis (a respiratory disease) or mesothelioma (a deadly form of cancer); inhaling silica (a compound found in sand and sandstone that comprises the mineral quartz) can cause silicosis. These diseases are treatable, but they are not always curable. If you have been diagnosed with any of these, you should talk to your doctor and an experienced attorney.
  • Lead poisoning can develop over an extended period of exposure to lead; it builds up in your system until it causes headaches, abdominal pain, high blood pressure, and more troubling and painful side effects.
  • Repeated exposure to loud sounds can contribute to hearing loss, and you may not be able to recover your hearing.
  • Skin disorders are the result of exposure to irritants and allergens. Many farm laborers have these kinds of issues from coming into contact with pesticides for much of the day. You can also damage your skin if you spend too much of your time outside in the sun all day without proper coverage (such as a long-sleeved shirt, pants, and hat).
  • Breathing in too much dust, dirt, and chemicals can lead to lung and other respiratory problems. You may develop something as minor as a temporary cough or something as serious as cancer, infections, or chronic bronchitis, for example.
