Is COVID-19 Covered by Workers’ Compensation? | Harold J. Gerr Law

Is COVID-19 Covered by Workers’ Compensation?

Can you file a Workers’ Compensation claim if you contracted coronavirus through your work or employment? Will Workers’ Compensation pay for your medical treatment, time out of work, and any permanent disability caused by your coronavirus diagnosis?

There have been no specific rulings on these questions yet.

Did your coronavirus illness arise out of or during the course of your employment, or did you contract coronavirus directly from your workplace?

The answers to these questions may depend on your profession. For example, there is a strong argument that health care professionals, such as nurses, working with coronavirus patients can easily contract the disease through their work. It is more probable than not that they contracted the disease through their work.

Each case must be evaluated individually, but there may be compensation for physical damages related to COVID-19. Additionally, if a relative or spouse died from COVID-19, there may be dependency benefits available to you. Our Highland Park Workers’ Compensation lawyers at the Law Offices of Harold J. Gerr help workers obtain compensation for work-related illnesses. If you believe you have contracted the coronavirus at work and wish to have a free consultation, contact us online or call us at 877-249-4600.
