Asbestosis and Occupational Diseases

AV Rating2 Attorney Dick Huffman tried and won the first mesothelioma case to ever be heard by the North Carolina Court of Appeals.

Generally, there are two types of workers’ compensation cases: injuries by accident and occupational diseases. Whereas injuries happen at once, occupational diseases develop over time due to exposure to toxic substances. The Huffman Law Firm, P.A. has extensive experience representing hundreds of  individuals with occupational diseases. Typical occupational diseases include Asbestosis, asbestos-related cancers, Silicosis, Brown Lung disease from cotton dust, lead poisoning, and exposure to other toxic chemicals and substances.
