Our firm would like to thank all U.S. Veterans for their service and fighting to preserve the liberties upon which this country was founded. We would especially like to thank all of our Veteran clients for their service and for allowing us the opportunity to fight for the rights they themselves strove to protect.
We are proud to recognize and thank the Veterans of Lancaster & Eure, Lee and attorney Alex Lancaster, for their service to our country. The dedication and sacrifices of the brave men and women like Alex and Lee are prime examples of what makes America the greatest country in the world.
As Gary Hart once said, "I think there is one higher office than president and I would call that patriot."
Even in the most obvious cases of work related injuries, such as the loss of a body part from a work accident, Americans (especially Floridians) have trouble obtaining the benefits they deserve from Workers' Compensation. This becomes even more troublesome for those who have injuries which develop over time, such as illnesses from exposure to hazardous chemicals.
The Center for Public Integrity recently published an article giving a comprehensive look into those types of difficult cases.
As stated in their article, "When it comes to chemically induced illnesses and other job-triggered diseases that creep up over time, according to researchers and the federal agency overseeing occupational safety, workers’ comp rarely works at all."
