Occupational disease remains one of the unknowns in Workers' Compensation insurance claims even with the advent of COVID-19. Are the presumption laws needed to make sure the workers injured by COVID-19 receive proper care and benefits?

Occupational disease claims can be the most costly. Mesothelioma occupational disease claims may cost $100,000+ per incident.

In this session you will learn:

  • How wristwatch faces became the origin of Occupational Disease laws nationwide
  • The difference between an accident and an occupational disease
  • Examples of Occupational Disease laws and rules in certain states
  • How long does the injured employee have to make a claim?
  • Are the COVID-19 presumptions necessary?
  • Occupational disease vs. personal sensitivity claims
  • Can a COVID-19 claim be denied?
