COVID-19 and Potential Exposure in Workers’ Compensation Claims

With the continued spread of COVID-19, it will only be a matter of time until the first workers’ compensation claim is made by an employee against their employer for an alleged exposure to the coronavirus.

Our state-by-state guide covers caselaw across our firm’s national footprint and provides employers, insurers, and third-party administrators with detailed claims-handling recommendations. In addition, our New York State leadership team prepared a more detailed memo on New York State case law and claims-handling recommendations.

For further guidance or information, please do not hesitate to reach out to our national Workers’ Compensation practice co-chairs, Damon M. Gruber and Sean J. McKinley, or the Workers’ Compensation Team Leader in the office closest to you listed in the state-by-state guide.
