Can you get workers’ comp for COVID-19?

The workers’ compensation system is designed to help workers who sustain a work-related injury or occupational disease, but cases involving the Coronavirus may not be so straightforward.

A disease or illness that’s caused by the nature of your employment is something that should be covered by workers’ compensation, but for workers who are exposed to COVID-19 it can be difficult to prove exactly when and where you contracted the virus and if it was while you were on the job.

Those who may be at risk of occupational exposure to COVID-19 include:

  • First responders
  • Healthcare providers
  • Hospital workers
  • Veterinarians
  • Nursing home and assisted living facility workers
  • Home healthcare workers
  • Manufacturers
  • Utility workers
  • Telecommunication employees
  • Airline employees
  • Hotel workers
  • Retail workers (e.g., those employed at grocery stores, convenient stores, pharmacies, gas stations, restaurants/bars, hardware stores, etc.)
  • Service workers
  • News media
  • Financial institution employees
  • Construction workers
  • Certain government employees

No matter what field of work you’re in, if you believe you’ve had occupational exposure to the Coronavirus due to the nature of your work, then you may qualify for certain benefits. Call our law firm today. Our New York workers’ compensation attorneys can stand by your side and guide you through the process.
