Get compensated for your occupational exposure illness

Occupational exposure is something that can lead to you suffering serious health consequences in your future or even in the present, depending on the exposure type. Occupational exposure is defined as being exposed to an occupational disease or medical condition due to the environment at a workplace. It's not the same as being hurt by crushing or cutting, instead, it refers to longer-term illnesses. For instance, prior to laws being in place to prevent asbestos of certain types, many people suffered lung conditions such as mesothelioma.

Chemical exposure is a type of exposure you may suffer from if you work with chemicals in a lab, on a farm, in a factory or in other situations. These chemicals can cause burns or cancers in some cases. Repetitive lifting can expose you to back injuries or neck injuries. Chronic pain in your knees, shoulders, feet, back or legs would also not be uncommon. Repetitive motion injuries are also similar to repetitive lifting injuries, but hands and wrists are most likely to be affected with carpal tunnel or arthritis.

Hearing loss is possible in loud environments if you're not provided the proper protective equipment, and your eyesight could be injured due to exposure to UV rays or other bright elements. While not all injuries will be able to be attributed to the workplace, these are common and likely to be linked to the job you did if it's common in the field.

Our website has more information on occupational injuries and illnesses and what you can do if you think you have suffered an injury or illness because of your job.
