Bucks County Occupational Disease Attorney

Many Pennsylvania workers come in contact with hazardous materials at their jobs — conditions that can cause occupational diseases and life-threatening medical conditions.

If you suspect that there is a direct connection between your employment and your failing health, you have the right to seek workers' compensation benefits. These benefits would cover lost wages due to time away from your job and medical care to treat the condition.

In the Lehigh Valley, including Bucks County and Schuylkill County, the skilled workers' compensation attorney who protect that right and those benefits is Joseph DeRita, founder of the Law Offices of Joseph DeRita in Jamison.

Mr. DeRita has aggressively safeguarded the interests of occupational disease victims across the state during his 25 years of practice. He knows how complicated these cases can sometimes be, and investigates for facts that he uses in negotiations with insurers, to work toward obtaining the benefits you deserve.

Our attorney serves injured workers in Allentown and surrounding areas, bringing big city experience and small town values to your side. Contact us today to arrange your free consultation.
