Can An Illness Be Covered By Workers’ Comp?

Click below to share this on social media:

A work-related illness is covered under Iowa Workers’ Comp insurance policies, but the key is proving that the illness was work-related.  For example, if a worker was exposed to a toxic substance at work and gotten sick because of it, that would be covered.

Work-related illnesses are also referred to as occupational diseases.  For an employee to qualify for Workers’ Comp benefits the illness must have been caused by a “natural incident of a particular occupation.”  An example of this would be a worker who suffered asbestosis after being involved with asbestos removal as part of a construction job.  Work-related illnesses can be challenging to prove that it was due to a worker’s job duties. That is why many workers in this situation hire an Iowa Workers’ Comp attorney to gather evidence in order to prove the connection.

It is critical for any worker who has suffered a workplace illness to see a doctor for a diagnosis.  A physician’s opinion on what caused the illness is going to be critical for receiving compensation and an attorney will use the opinion to help establish a connection in the case.

To learn more about your rights or to receive assistance in either filing or appealing your Workers’ Comp case, you’re going to need an attorney.  Call us for a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
