Claim allowed after Retirement

Posted by Chuck Conrad | Feb 18, 2022

The injured worker was a firefighter for 20 years. After his retirement, he developed pulmonary fibrosis. His L&I claim for the condition was allowed as an occupational disease.

This case is important as it reminds workers who develop a condition after retirement, that the condition may be a valid L&I claim.

Some types of cancer are often work-related.
