Getting Workers’ Compensation For COVID-19

Did you know that COVID-19 can be considered an occupational disease? Frontline workers and first responders, as well as other workers who contracted COVID-19 at work, can seek compensation if they are suffering from long-term COVID-19 complications.

While it is true that frontline workers and first responders were at great risk for getting COVID-19 on the job, just about anyone can contract COVID-19 at work. At the Law Offices of Hinden & Breslavsky, APC, we represent workers of all types throughout California. If you got COVID-19 from work and are suffering from long-term health issues, you could be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits and should contact us to discuss your options. Your consultation is free.

How Has Long COVID-19 Affected Your Health?

Long COVID-19 symptoms are wide ranging and vary in severity. Some of the most common long COVID-19 issues include:

  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Cardiac issues
  • Respiratory issues
  • Cognitive impairment (brain fog)
  • Headaches
  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Joint or muscle pain
  • Digestive issues
  • Neurological symptoms, including depression and anxiety
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Multiorgan damage

These symptoms can prevent you from working, doing daily tasks and caring for your family for months or years. In some cases, long COVID-19 can be fatal. It is imperative that you discuss your situation with an experienced attorney.
