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
  • Asbestosis
  • Benzene leukemia
  • Caisson disease (compressed air illness)
  • Mesothelioma
  • “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 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.
