Coronavirus (COVID-19) Workers Compensation Lawyers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Did You Become Ill After Being Exposed to the Coronavirus at Work?
If so, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your injuries
and lost wages through the workers compensation system.

Workers’ compensation is a “no-fault” system setup to enable employees to recover injuries they have sustained in connection with their work. While simply becoming ill with the Coronavirus is not enough to pursue a workers’ compensation claim, you may be able to pursue a worker’s compensation claim if you can establish that you were exposed to the Coronavirus through your work.

What Kind of Work Exposes Employees to the Coronavirus?

There are many different workplaces in which an employee may be exposed to the Coronavirus. As such, it is important to consult with an attorney to determine whether you may be able to file a worker’s compensation claim based upon your illness. Healthcare workers—including but not limited to Physicians, Nurses, Respiratory Therapists, CNAs, Social Workers, and other employees who work in healthcare—are at a high-risk of becoming infected with Coronavirus due to their work. First responders, sanitation workers, construction workers, truck drivers, utility workers, grocery store employees, hardware store employees, and other workers who continue to work in the public during the Pandemic are also at high-risk of becoming infected with the Coronavirus due to their work. However, these are just a few examples of many situations in which employees may be able to assert a workers’ compensation claim based upon the Coronavirus.

Despite the serious health risks, many employers are not providing their employees with appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (“PPE”) even though they are at substantial risk of exposure to the Coronavirus in the workplace. The fact that you were exposed to patients, members of the public, or co-workers who were suffering from the Coronavirus while you were not provided with the appropriate PPE can help establish that your infection with the Coronavirus was a work-related injury. For example, if you are a healthcare worker who provided care for patients infected with the Coronavirus and were forced to use a handmade “respirator” rather than a medical-grade N95 respirator, you did not have the proper PPE. As another example, if you were a sanitation worker and you collected garbage or recycling and were forced to work without a respirator, gloves, or other protective materials, you did not have the proper PPE. The fact that you did not have the proper PPE while you were being exposed to the Coronavirus can be used as evidence to show that your infection with the Coronavirus resulted from exposure in the workplace.
