Exposure to toxic chemicals can have both short and long-term effects. Those most at risk from toxic chemical exposure are those that live or work near a facility that manufactures or works with dangerous chemicals. Frequent long-term exposure to benzene, vinyl chloride, and other chemicals has been known to cause cancer and other health ailments. If you or a loved one has been injured because of exposure to toxic chemicals, please contact the Law Offices of Victor Dante, a top North Miami Beach Workers’ Compensation Lawyer.

Forklifts, large drill presses and other machinery can cause severe injuries, from loss of limbs to burns. It is your employer’s obligation to provide a safe work environment and properly functioning and well-maintained equipment. If your or a loved one has suffered an injury as the result of a machinery accident, we can help. Please contact the Law Offices of Victor F. Dante today.
Job Accidents/Workers’ Compensation
Both accidents and repeated job duties can cause work-related injuries. A construction worker injured in a fall is an example of the former while an industrial worker injured by constant exposure to dangerous chemicals represents the latter. Workers’ compensation is a benefit system put in place to help injured workers receive compensation for their injuries and return to their jobs as soon as possible. Injured employees are eligible for workers’ compensation if they are injured on the job or while performing normal job duties. Fault is not considered. Workers’ compensation protects workers by providing for their medical expenses and lost wages. Employees who accept workers’ compensation benefits cannot sue their employer, although in some cases, a suit may be brought against a third party. If you believe that you have been wrongfully denied workers’ compensation benefits, our Miami-Dade law firm can help you receive the compensation you deserve. Please contact us today!
Repetitive Stress Injury
Many jobs require repetitive movements–clicking a mouse over and over again, carrying heavy or awkward objects, holding a telephone on one’s shoulder. Because the body isn’t allowed appropriate rest between these movements, repetitive strain injuries often develop. These include, but are not limited to: tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, tensynovitis, thoracic outlet syndrome, and cubital tunnel syndrome. If you believe your occupation has caused a repetitive stress injury, we can help. Please contact us today.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Marked by pain, numbness, burning, and tingling in the fingers, wrists, and hands, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a painful condition caused by inflammation of the tendons and ligaments of the wrist. Repetitive movement, such as typing, aggravates the condition, eventually making it difficult for one to grip objects or make a fist. Although people who have been pregnant, have diabetes, or are obese are at higher risk for developing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, many develop the condition as a result of work-related cumulative trauma. If you suffer from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, you may be entitled to compensation. Please contact us today to learn more.
