Work Comp Claims for Occupational Disease in Springfield Illinois

A common misconception about workers’ compensation claims is that they are exclusive to physical injuries. That is simply not the case. Workers who develop a disease or chronic ailment due to exposure at workplace conditions are entitled to compensation, too. Whether it is chemicals or hazardous air quality, there are various ways your job could cause you to develop a serious disease. If you have been diagnosed with a serious illness and suspect your job is at fault, contact LaMarca Law Office today.

Is My Occupation at Fault?

One of the more difficult challenges involving these claims is being able to distinguish the link between your job and your illness. Often any proof is susceptible to heavy scrutiny from employers and insurance companies. If LaMarca Law Office handles your case, know that we have a pool of resources to use in order to find the right evidence to make the connection between your job and your health concerns. We collaborate with you about your work environment, your disease, and any other pertinent information to help us establish a link; only then can we prove your workplace is responsible for your disease.

Common Occupational Diseases

Occupational diseases are more common than you think, especially in certain workplace environments. Work environments with high usage of chemicals, asbestos, or other harmful particles that damage air quality have a greater chance of developing a serious illness as a result. Common occupational diseases include:

• Infections
• Cancers
• Organ Damage

• Chemical Burns
• Carpal Tunnel
• Repetitive Stress Injuries

• Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
• Poisoning
