CORONAVIRUS COVID-19 WORK INJURY

EXECUTIVE ORDER BY KENTUCKY GOVERNOR ANDY BEASHER APRIL 9, 2020:

 

"Kentuckians who, because of the nature of their employment, are at risk of being exposed to or contracting COVID-19 should be protected by workers' compensation coverage."

 

Fellow Kentuckians,

First and foremost, Cole, Cole, Anderson & Newman charges no fees unless we win your case.

 

We feel this is especially important during these trying times. Working to support yourself and your family is trying enough, even without having to worry if you are safe at work or if you might carry a life-threatening disease home to your loved ones. Now, those thoughts and fears are front of mind.

Our firm is here to help. All workers who are diagnosed with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) either due to the nature of their job or a specific workplace exposure may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.

More obviously, this applies to first responders and medical professionals, but it also applies to other workers, such as grocery workers, custodians, delivery drivers, and utility workers, to name just a few. 

  • If you routinely deal with the public at your job, you may be eligible for occupational disease coverage.

  • If you can identify a specific workplace exposure or event, you may be eligible for accidental coverage.

 

If you or your loved ones become sick with COVID-19 while on the job, contact Cole, Cole, Anderson & Newman, PSC, immediately.

Our experienced legal team is ready and available to discuss your legal options by phone, email or video conferencing. We guide you through the entire process and fight to get the compensation you and your family need and deserve.

Sincerely,

Frank K. Newman

Cole, Cole, Anderson & Newman, PSC

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

  • Nursing home and assisted living facility workers

  • Home healthcare workers

  • 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.
