Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Your Workers’ Compensation Case:
There is no denying that every person, whether you have lost your job, are working remotely or are still working as essential personnel, we have all been impacted by the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. But what does that mean for your workers’ compensation case? As information about the virus evolves, we are here to answer your questions on what this might mean for you.
Just because you are now working remotely, doesn’t mean that you cannot get injured or that the injury isn’t covered under workers’ compensation. What happens if you are injured while working at home?
And we cannot forget those who are still working on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our firefighters, law enforcement officers, emergency medical services providers, first responders, health care providers, and even workers within the food distribution chain, are all at an increased risk of exposure in order to aid the community and keep us safe. Can you make a claim for workers’ compensation benefits if you were exposed to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) as a result of your job?
If you have questions about anything else related to your workers’ compensation or personal injury case, please give us a call at 800-884-9507.
