Do I have a valid Workman's Compensation claim if I contact COVID 19?
There are no cases that have answered this question. However, there may be a claim and I would advise my client to apply for benefits.
The following questions and many more are important:
- What are the business' policies on mask-wearing, social distancing, the distribution of hand sanitizer, and keeping the work environment safe?
- Is the business in compliance with Washington State's Covid-19 business restrictions?
- Have other employees contracted the Covid-19 virus?
Let my extensive L&I experience help you if you think you've caught the virus at work.
