Get And Keep The Benefits You Deserve
A partial listing of occupational diseases recognized under Pennsylvania’s Occupational Disease Act includes:
- Allergic conditions, skin infections, inflammation
- Benzene leukemia
- Caisson disease (compressed air illness)
- “Miner’s asthma,” “black lung disease,” pneumoconiosis
- Poisoning by exposure to toxic substances or chemical compounds
- Radium or radiation poisoning
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.
