Along with injuries sustained at a single time in the workplace, injuries, afflictions and diseases that accrue over time are also compensable under workers’ compensation. While industrial and construction workers are often the most at risk, due to their proximity/exposure to dangerous substances, any worker can develop occupational diseases under certain conditions. Common occupational illnesses/diseases include:
- Skin diseases
- Lung diseases
- Asbestos poisoning
If you or a loved one has acquired an occupational illness, it is important that you obtain the benefits you need to heal, recover and elevate your quality of life.
