I got a disease from work can this be covered?

A: It is possible to get diseases that occurred from exposure at work covered, either as an occupational disease (if it is a disease to which the general public is not exposed) or as an ordinary disease of life) if it is a disease to which the general public is exposed. There are very specific requirements that must be met in order to qualify for benefits in either of these cases.

You should speak with a Virginia workers’ compensation attorney who can discuss the specifics of your case and assist you in securing benefits and protecting your rights.
