Occupational diseases are illnesses stemming from exposure to toxic materials and other health hazards at work. Many Workers’ Compensation claims for occupational disease involve lung disease or heart disease caused by workplace exposure to such things as coal dust, methane or carbon monoxide, arsenic or lead, toxic chemicals or solvents, and smoke or heat. Some illnesses are specifically enumerated as work-related with the employer having the burden to rebut the hurt at work claim, i.e. “black lung disease” from coal mining. For other occupational diseases, your lawyer must prove that your illness was caused by your employment.
