Examining The Causes Of Serious Injuries
While most people are used to accidents as an obvious cause of work-related injuries, many are less familiar with workplace injuries and illnesses with a gradual onset. When a job-related injury builds slowly over time, it may be hard at first to pinpoint its cause. At Shulman & Hill, we defend the rights of many injured workers with gradual-onset injuries and illnesses from the workplace.
Your injury or illness may be related to something you frequently experience or are exposed to on the job such as:
- Toxic chemicals
- Repetitive motion
- Inadequate training
- Mechanical failure
If you suspect that you might have a work-related injury, take action now to get the compensation you deserve.

Here are jobs where gradual-onset injuries are common:
