Proving the cause and effect relationship in these cases can be difficult. You want an attorney who knows the laws and the process, one who has successfully helped others in similar circumstances.

He is AV-rated* under Martindale-Hubbell's Peer Review Rating System, and has been named a Minnesota "Super Lawyer" by Minnesota Law & Politics, Minneapolis-St. Paul Magazine, and Twin Cities Business Magazine.

Aggressive And Experienced Workplace Injury Lawyer

Our firm handles all types of claims relating to occupational disease resulting from exposure to chemicals or other substances in the workplace, including:

  • Asthma or breathing difficulties caused by exposure to silica dust, asbestos or other materials
  • Lung disease or cancer
  • Other types of cancer, such as liver or kidney cancer
  • Blood diseases, including lymphoma

We also represent health care professionals and medical workers who contract bacterial infections, such as MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus).

The deadlines for recovery in occupational disease claims differ from typical workers' compensation claims. In addition, you may also be entitled to recover damages outside of the workers' compensation process by filing a third-party claim against the manufacturer of the product that caused the disease.

We will handle every detail of your case, preparing and filing all documentation required and acting on your behalf in all hearings throughout the process.
