If you suffer an illness at work, you could have a claim

Workplace illnesses happen when people are exposed to items in their work environment that lead to the aggravation of pre-existing conditions or that contribute to a resulting condition. Occupational illnesses vary, but there are a few that can often be linked to the work environment. Some of these include:

  • Respiratory conditions such as silicosis, asbestosis, tuberculosis, toxic inhalation injury, chronic obstructive bronchitis, beryllium disease or rhinitis
  • Poisoning, such as from toxic substances like carbon monoxide, mercury, lead or arsenic
  • Hearing loss, which can be caused by high levels of sound over long periods of time or loud bursts in short periods
  • Other illnesses such as heat stroke, hepatitis B, histoplasmosis, sunstroke and others

When someone suffers an illness or injury of this kind, it's important that they're able to seek the compensation they need to take care of themselves. If an illness can be linked to your work environment, then there is a good chance that you could ask for compensation through workers' compensation.

If you are able to seek workers' compensation, you may be able to ask for benefits such as the replacement of lost wages, payments for your medical expenses and others.

It is not always easy to know when you can file a claim for an illness, but if you believe that it is related to work you've done on the job, it's a good idea to look into workers' compensation. You may be able to file a claim and receive support for the care you need moving forward. Our website has more on the steps to take next.
