Fighting for People Who Suffer from Occupational Diseases
If you have contracted silicosis, asbestosis, cancer, or any other condition because of exposure to chemicals, bacteria or other substances at work, you want an experienced and aggressive lawyer to protect your interests and help you get full and fair compensation for any injuries sustained. 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.
At the office of Mark J. Fellman, Attorney at Law, in St. Paul, I have over 30 years of experience fighting for the rights of injured workers. I am AV-rated* under Martindale-Hubbell's Peer Review Rating System, and have been named a Minnesota "Super Lawyer" by Minnesota Law & Politics, Minneapolis-St. Paul Magazine, and Twin Cities Business Magazine. As a result of my reputation for strong and effective counsel, many of my cases come to me as referrals from other attorneys and from former/current clients.
Contact my office or call me at 651-222-9515 for an appointment.
Aggressive and Experienced Workplace Injury Lawyer
I handle 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
I 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.
I will handle every detail of your case, preparing and filing all documentation required and acting on your behalf in all hearings throughout the process.
