Occupational Disease

Occupational workers compensation claims arise from medical conditions caused by an exposure to something harmful in the workplace. Occupational diseases are the most common form of occupational workers compensation claim. To qualify for workers compensation, the disease must be produced as a natural incident of a particular occupation. Examples of common occupational diseases include:

  • Asbestosis or other lung diseases arising from asbestos exposure
  • Skin diseases caused by exposure to certain chemicals, such as eczema, urticaria and skin cancer
  • Lead poisoning resulting from exposure to lead compounds

If you have suffered from a work-related occupational disease, the time limit for filing your claim is different from the time limit for construction accident claims and other on-the-job injuries. The time limit for filing a claim for an occupational disease is the later of.

  • Two years from the date of the disability, or
  • Two years form the time the disabled worker knew or should have known that the disease was due to the nature of his or her employment

Occupational Hearing Loss

If you have suffered from hearing loss due to exposure to harmful noise at work, you may also be entitled to workers compensation benefits. You may be able to file a claim even after many years following your exposure to a harmful, noisy work environment.
