“If you are a worker in a high risk environment, like a hospital or nursing home, and have contracted COVID 19 then the chances are very high that workers’ compensation should cover lost wages and medical costs.

WHAT IS WORKERS' COMPENSATION?
Workers' compensation is a state-mandated insurance program that provides benefits to employees who suffer job-related injuries and illnesses. Each state has its own laws and programs for workers' compensation. "If you were injured at work, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. If you qualify, you can receive payments to partially replace your paycheck and for medical care related to your injury. You may also be eligible for vocational rehabilitation if you need help getting back to work. If the workers’ compensation insurance company denies your claim, you can file an appeal with the Department of Industrial Accidents (DIA), which oversees the workers’ compensation system in Massachusetts." - Mass.Gov
IF I GET SICK WHILE ON THE JOB, CAN I FILE FOR WORKERS' COMPENSATION?
“If a person contracts the Coronavirus for any work-related reason, that person could be eligible for workers’ compensation.” It depends on the laws in your state, if your job is considered essential, and the circumstances in your case.
Workers’ compensation generally covers diseases that employees contract because of their work—or, occupational diseases “arising out of and in the course of employment” (AOE/COE). Although common infectious diseases like the flu aren’t considered occupational illnesses, COVID-19 might be treated differently in some cases.
Specific eligibility requirements for occupational diseases vary from state to state, but you typically need to demonstrate that:
the particular nature of your job caused your illness or put you at a higher risk of exposure to the virus than the general public,
you contracted the illness as a result of a specific exposure that happened while you were doing your job.
Workers’ compensation court is open to process claims and our firm is able to process workers compensation claims over the phone at no out of pocket cost to you.
How We Help You
So now that we know accidents can happen, what do you do when they happen? The first thing is easy; file a notice, no matter how minor the injury may seem. Then make certain you retain a copy of that notice. But from there it gets a little tricky. The financial fallout from an injury due to a workplace accident can be devastating. The majority of people today do not have a substantial amount of funds saved. Paying for living expenses if you can no longer work and collect a weekly paycheck will prove to be very difficult. It can take weeks to file and complete the necessary paperwork and receive the appropriate benefits you deserve for a workplace injury. In the meantime, your mortgage is due, you still need to pay utilities, and everyday expenses continue to pile up. All you want to do is get better and return to work. We can help you with your workers compensation claim.
