Seeking Compensation For Illnesses And Diseases From Work

When people think about workers’ compensation, they often think about tragic accidents and catastrophic injuries. While these are common calls for workers’ compensation, they are not the only ones. There are many illnesses and diseases that an employee can earn from work, and it can take a skilled attorney to help earn fair compensation for them.

At Velilla Law Firm, you can find a California lawyer who knows the consequences of workplace illnesses and diseases and how to secure a workers’ compensation settlement that reflects the consequences.

Common Illnesses And Diseases

Depending on the nature of your job, you may have been exposed to an illness or disease, or have developed one slowly over time. The first step in filing your claim is recognizing that your ailment is the result of your work. Some common illnesses that can come from a job include:

  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Cancer
  • Mesothelioma
  • Asthma
  • Bloodborne infectious diseases
  • Lyme disease or other mosquito or tick-borne illnesses
  • Flu
  • Tuberculosis
