Occupational diseases are injuries and illnesses derived from working conditions.
Employees who sustain an occupational disease are eligible for workers’
compensation. However, if a negligent third party – such as a chemical
manufacturer – is also liable, the employee may file a separate
personal injury lawsuit for additional monetary damages.
