Workers Compensation Benefits To Be Extended To Firefighters With Cancer
Workers Compensation Benefits will be expanded to include Firefighters that have been diagnosed with Cancer. Since the 911 World Trade Towers incidents, emergency responders have been diagnosed with a number of diseases, including cancer, due to exposure under work-related rescue missions. Because of this, many firefighters are not aware that Worker’s compensation claims can help ease the burden of this terrible occurrence.
North Carolina Worker’s Compensation was enacted in 1929, where a business with more than three employees was covered by benefits for “injuries incurred during the course and scope of his or her employment”. This now includes firefighters that have been diagnosed with cancer, because of the exposure to toxins encountered in the nature of their forced exposure in the course of their work.
According to David Vtipil of Younce & Vtipil, www.AttorneysNC.com , “Younce and Vtipil is a client-oriented law firm that utilizes state-of-the-art case management tools to ensure that our clients receive the best representation possible. We are typically paid on a contingent fee basis, meaning that we are not paid until we successfully obtain money for our client.”

Since asbestos remains in older buildings, and remains a toxin that causes lung cancer, many firefighters have been exposed to asbestos over the years and it can take up to 40 years to develop symptoms after exposure. If you’re a firefighter that has developed cancer, don’t hesitate to find out your rights and benefits available under the Worker’s Compensation benefit program.
