Frederick Occupational Disease Lawyer

Workplace injuries are not always caused by sudden and immediate accidents. Repetitive motions and actions can cause lasting damage and repetitive stress injuries. Occupational disease can also be caused by over-exposure to toxins and environmental factors such as asbestos and dust inhalation.

Occupational diseases are generally considered to be conditions or injuries that are directly related to the individual's job or employment situation. Because they are job-related, they are covered by workers' compensation. Those who suffer from occupational diseases are entitled to benefits covering medical treatments and lost wages resulting from the injuries and ailments.
