Did Your Work Bring You In Contact With Toxic Substances?

Workers' compensation covers more than just workplace accidents. Employees who suffer from exposure to toxic substances while doing work-related activities are eligible for workers' compensation benefits. This includes exposure to toxic substances in your work building, such as mold and asbestos, and exposure to chemicals and other hazardous substances in the course of your work, such as cotton dust if you work in textiles.

Employers have a legal duty to provide a safe workspace for workers. Any exposure to toxic substances that leads to an illness or medical condition qualifies you for workers' compensation, even if your employer took reasonable steps to prevent any exposure. A workers' comp claim is not a lawsuit: Workers' comp is an insurance system designed to help injured workers regardless of fault.
