Toxic Exposure

Occupational Disease Claims

A large percentage of claims for workers' compensation benefits involve injuries suffered in a catastrophic accident or which are the result of repetitive stress and strain. These are not, however, the only types of conditions for which an individual may be eligible to claim benefits. If you have suffered from exposure to toxic chemical substances in the course of your job duties, you may be entitled to receive benefits to pay for your medical treatment and your lost wages. You should not be forced to pay the price for having been subjected to hazardous chemical exposure, and a workers' comp claim may make it possible for you to cover your resulting losses.

In order to prove your workers' comp claim, it will be necessary to demonstrate that the toxic exposure occurred at work. In some cases this is a relatively straightforward proposition, for example if the exposure occurred in a single incident such as a major spill or if your job duties involved handling a harsh solvent such as benzene.

In other cases it is a far more difficult proposition given the fact that the effects of the exposure may not manifest as symptoms for several years or decades later. This is often true of mesothelioma caused by asbestos exposure. When this is the case, it may be necessary to perform an exhaustive investigation to accurately determine the time and place of exposure.
