Occupational Diseases and Illnesses

Do you have an occupational disease or illness? If a doctor has told you that you have a disease, illness, or condition caused by your employment, you may be eligible for monetary damages. You have a right to expect that your employment will not cause you any serious life-altering conditions, such as any of the following:

  • Asbestosis or mesothelioma are conditions that result from inhaling asbestos. While both are very serious, asbestosis is a slightly less dangerous respiratory disease, while mesothelioma is a potentially deadly cancer).
  • Silicosis is a similar condition, but it is the result of inhaling silica, the compound that comprises the mineral quartz as well as sand and sandstone.
  • When you are exposed to even small amounts of lead, it builds up in your system and you may develop lead poisoning; fortunately, it is treatable, but not always curable. Symptoms include abdominal pain, headaches, and high blood pressure, among other things.
  • Being constantly exposed to loud noises (such as the sounds of heavy machinery) can lead to permanent hearing loss.
  • Exposure to skin allergens and irritants (such as pesticides and other dangerous chemicals) can cause rashes, swelling, and itching as well as permanent skin damage. Additionally, working most of the day outside puts you at an increased risk for skin damage due to sun exposure; you could get skin cancer, for example.
  • If you work outside or anywhere around dirt, dust, and chemicals, you may develop anything from a nagging cough to something as life-threatening as cancer or respiratory infections.
