Des Moines Attorneys Handling Occupational Disease Claims

People whose jobs include working in a loud environment, using repetitive motion or handling toxic materials such as asbestos suffer a high rate of occupational disease and disabilities. If you work in Iowa, chances are your occupation-related disability will be covered by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance.

Call Loney & Schueller to discuss the circumstances of your disease or disability. Our attorneys have more than 50 combined years of legal experience helping injured workers obtain medical treatment benefits and disability wage settlements for occupational diseases and injuries caused by repetitive motion or an unsafe work environment. From offices in West Des Moines, our lawyers represent injured workers in communities throughout the state.

We Do Not Take No For An Answer

Workers’ compensation insurance carriers are notorious for denying claims related to occupational diseases such as hearing loss, repetitive stress injuries and illness resulting from exposure to toxic materials or unsafe environments. We have helped hundreds of workers prove their claims. We will work aggressively to help you move your claim through the system efficiently and effectively.

Common types of occupational diseases include:

  • Work-related hearing loss
  • Lead poisoning resulting in memory loss and decline in mental function
  • Blurred vision, diminished eyesight and blindness
  • Mesothelioma and asbestosis resulting from exposure to asbestos
  • Respiratory diseases related to exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Heart attacks, high blood pressure and cardiac conditions related to stress on the job
  • Repetitive trauma injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Shoulder injuries, including torn rotator cuff
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Knee and hip injuries
  • Depression resulting from work-related stress or injuries

It Makes Financial Sense To Hire An Attorney

Can you afford an attorney? Many injured workers are worried that hiring a lawyer will cost them more than their workers’ compensation settlement is worth. We assure you, that can’t happen. We get paid only a low percentage of the monetary damages we help you recover. If we don’t recover a monetary settlement, you pay no fees. It’s that simple. By helping clients get the maximum money benefits from every available source of payment, we often help them get significantly more money than if they had not hired us, even after our fees.

What Our Clients Say


Randy vigorously negotiated my case and I received a lump sum payment in excess of $200,000. He worked extremely hard for me and made sure I was taken care of. I am more than pleased with the outcome of my case.

Rusty from St. Augustine, Florida

Without Eric’s help and guidance I am not sure where I would be. I thank the person who referred Eric to me every day. I recommend that others use Eric for their workers’ compensation cases.

Sarah also obtained a settlement from homeowner’s the insurance company. I would certainly recommend Sarah to represent you with regard to injuries received due to a dog bite.
