Occupational Diseases Covered By Workers' Compensation

Occupational diseases are serious conditions that can severely hinder a worker's ability to do his or her job, and they can even become fatal if left unchecked. It is the responsibility of every employer to maintain a safe work environment that minimizes the chance of injury or illness to employees. If a work-related illness does develop, however, an employee has the right to seek workers' compensation benefits.

Occupational disease claims are complex cases that should be handled by an experienced Georgia occupational disease attorney. At the law firm of Hilley & Frieder, we represent clients throughout the Atlanta area and across the state in a broad range of occupational disease claims, including illnesses arising from toxic exposure, lung diseases and others.
