WORKERS’ COMPENSATION UPDATE
If you have contracted COVID-19 as part of your work environment, please contact us and we can discuss if your condition falls under the Workers’ Compensation Act. If we can prove that you contracted your virus as part of your work environment, you would be entitled to compensation that would include payment of all medical expenses; lost time benefits while you recovery; and a settlement for any ongoing problems after you recover.
Please note that in Illinois, first responders and essential employees are presumed to have contracted COVID-19 at work. Missouri recognizes that same presumption but limits it to first responders. Regardless, if believe that you contracted COVID-19 at work, please contact us immediately so that we can inform you of your rights under the Workers’ Compensation Act.
