Workers’ Compensation Cases from the Covid-19 Virus

Some employers may be exposing their workers to the virus without proper protection.  As a result, a worker may be infected and become ill, perhaps very ill or even die, from such increased exposure.

In these situations, the worker may well have a workers’ compensation injury claim to cause the employer (its insurer usually) to provide–at its cost–medical care, weekly compensation while off work, plus an award of money to compensate the worker for his or her permanent disability.   The law also mandates the employer/insurer pay compensation to spouse and/or dependents in cases where the employee dies from the injury, or in this case, the virus.

I handle Missouri and Kansas workers’ compensation claims and would be glad to speak with you about whether you have a viable claim.   These claims are typically handled on a 25% contingency fee basis, so there is no fee unless you receive compensation on the claim.  However, clients are generally responsible for reimbursing the out-of-pocket expenses for the costs of obtaining medical records, examination and rating by a doctor if needed, and the like.

It is important to act promptly as there are time limits that will defeat your claim if you wait past the deadlines!

Please call if you think this situation may apply to you!  Thank you.
