If You Have Contracted COVID-19 Due to Workplace Exposure, You May Be Entitled to Workers’ Compensation Benefits

If you believe that you have contracted COVID-19 at your workplace, you may have the right to file a Workers’ Compensation claim. Depending upon the circumstances, your contracting of COVID-19 may be an Occupational Disease under the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act. If it can be proven that your contraction of COVID-19 was due to workplace exposure, you will be entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits. These benefits will include wage loss, medical treatment, including the cost of testing, and any death and/or dependency benefits. Additionally, you may be compensated for any psychological injury you suffered as a result of a COVID-19 workplace exposure.
