Eligibility for Worker’s Compensation After Exposure to COVID-19 On-the-Job

Were you exposed to COVID-19 on the job and later tested positive?

Was personal protective equipment missing in your workplace?

Are you having trouble paying your bills because of your illness?
Colorado workers compensation attorney

According to the Department of Labor and Employment for Colorado, “regulation is imperatively necessary for the preservation of public health, safety, or welfare as ensuring operation of the workers’ compensation system is imperative to preserve the health of the citizens of Colorado.”

As reported cases of COVID-19 increase, it places a significant strain upon medical resources. Emergency rules are being promoted to increase access to telehealth services in order to assure injured workers maintain access to reasonable and necessary medical care while complying with physical distancing guidelines and mandates. COVID-19-related actions to promote physical distancing have disrupted workers’ ability to receive in-person care for their job-related injuries and illnesses. Continuity of care is essential to monitor the progress of recovery. Treatment delays impede recovery and may increase claims costs.

  • Your employer denies your claim or you fail to receive your benefits promptly.
  • Your employer's settlement offer doesn't cover all your lost wages or medical bills.
  • Your medical issues prevent you from returning to your prior job, or from performing any work at all.
  • You receive Social Security disability benefits.
  • Your boss retaliates against you for filing a workers' comp claim. 
  • You have a potential third-party claim.

How does the worker’s compensation benefit process begin?

    Colorado workers compensation attorney
  1. Report the injury to your supervisor or employer immediately in writing;
  2. Request to see a doctor and get a list of which doctors you’re allowed to see; and
  3. Request and complete an employer’s first report of injury and or workers compensation claim form.
Until you report the injury and the claim form is returned to your employer, they're only under a limited obligation to provide benefits. A common mistake people make is waiting to report the injury until it becomes unbearable and they can no longer work.

Having guidelines in place before workers get injured can make the transition back to work easier on the employee and can potentially bring about substantial savings for the employer by avoiding unnecessary workers’ comp benefits.

However, some employers manipulate the spirit of inclusive "return to work" policies. Learn more!
