Actually, any medical illness or condition can potentially be a valid workers’ compensation claim if the particular occupational exposure is a material contribution to the causation, worsening, or acceleration of a medical condition or disease. Often these types of claims, known as “occupational” diseases, are contested, but with proper medical evidence supporting the claim, a Judge of Compensation can decide whether the condition is compensable or not.
