Seek Financial Relief for Occupational Illnesses
While many work injuries happen suddenly, such as serious burns or slip-and-falls,
other injuries take years to fully manifest themselves. These conditions
are known as “occupational illnesses” and can develop as a
consequence to a repeated motion or constant exposure. It can be difficult

means that there’s a good chance your initial claim will be denied.

Types of Occupational Illnesses
Occupational illnesses can come in many forms, and nearly every employment
position possesses a risk of one of these injuries happening, even if
it is a small one. Therefore, it’s important to analyze your condition
and determine if your job may have directly caused it over a long period of time.
- Some relatively frequent examples of occupational illnesses include:
Repetitive motion injuries: carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, or “tech neck,” which
is becoming much more common in recent years
Cancer: leukemia or lymphoma can develop in those who are frequently exposed to
toxic chemicals, particularly those with harmful fumes
Skin diseases: Continual contact with erosive chemicals can create all sorts of skin
issues, including permanent burns, scaring, or allergic reactions
Physical injuries: Continual lifting of heavy objects can result in joint pain, arthritis,
back pain, or even illnesses like a hernia
