Occupational Diseases

Occupational diseases cover a number of ailments that occur as a result of working in a certain industry or location. Sufferers of occupational diseases may be eligible for financial compensation for their conditions if their company was at fault and failed to take appropriate precautions and measures to protect their employees from dangerous substances. Some common occupational diseases include toxic chemical injuries, concrete dust, black lung, and other respiratory diseases, neurological disorders, manganism, mesothelioma and asbesteosis.
