Types of Occupational Diseases

A partial listing of occupational diseases recognized under Pennsylvania’s Occupational Disease Act includes:

  • Allergic conditions, skin infections, inflammation
  • Asbestosis – a danger for construction workers working on older buildings in which asbestos fibers are present
  • Benzene leukemia
  • Caisson disease (compressed air illness)
  • Mesothelioma – a deadly lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure
  • “Miner’s asthma,” “black lung disease,” pneumoconiosis
  • Poisoning by exposure to toxic substances or chemical compounds
  • Radium or radiation poisoning
  • Silicosis

Compensation for work-related occupational diseases may be awarded in addition to the benefits to which an injured Bustleton 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 Philadelphia occupational disease attorney sooner rather than put your claim at risk.

If you have contracted an illness, see our page on occupational illnesses and read more on the types of health conditions that may be caused by your workplace.
