Workers’ compensation insurance provides support for workers who suffer injuries or have fallen ill due to workplace conditions. While many workplace injuries are caused by sudden accidents, claims can also be filed for illnesses which occur gradually, such as exposure to toxic chemicals or asbestos. An occupational illness or disease isn’t obtained due to a single traumatic event, but is acquired as the direct result of employment over a long period of time.
