Attorney Jeffrey S. Gross and the experienced associates at our firm have focused on representing injured Pennsylvania workers for more than 17 years.
A partial listing of occupational diseases recognized under Pennsylvania's Occupational Disease Act includes:
- “Miner's asthma”, “black lung disease”, pneumoconiosis
- Benzene leukemia
- Caisson disease (compressed air illness)
- Radium or radiation poisoning
- Poisoning by exposure to toxic substances or chemical compounds
- Allergic conditions, skin infections, inflammation
Compensation for work-related occupational diseases may be awarded in addition to the benefits to which an injured worker may already be entitled. However, there are time limitations for filing a claims petition and it is better to seek the medical attention and get the advice of a lawyer sooner rather than put your claim at risk.
