Seeking Compensation For Occupational Diseases

Occupational DiseaseOccupational diseases occur from conditions in which workers are exposed to hazards over a prolonged period. Many substances with which industrial employees work can be seriously injurious if they are inhaled or touched. Exposure to some of these materials can be debilitating and permanent in a worst-case scenario. Some of these elements include:

  • Asbestos
  • Benzene
  • Vinyl chloride
  • Manganese
  • Mercury
  • Paints and solvents
  • Welding materials
  • Diesel exhaust
  • Cadmium
  • Mercury
  • Silica dust
  • Mold
  • Legionella

It is important to realize that workers can be compensated under workers’ compensation for these injuries as well as those sustained in one dramatic event.
