Can I file for Worker’s Compensation Claims 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?

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.

Can I Get Telehealth Reimbursement?

You should utilize telehealth wherever medically appropriate. Telehealth

appointments are specifically allowed for return to work evaluations of essential employees. An in-person examination will not be required where either the injured worker or medical provider objects to such an examination.

"Kaufman and Kaufman was extremely professional in my case. They set appointments as often as I requested which was often weekly or more. They handled all the problems that came up and ended up settling my case for more than I expected. I was very happy with the result."

"Kaufman and Kaufman represented me in a workman’s comp case and I couldn’t be happier with their service. They were very professional and gave me the personal service I was relying on. I hope I never get in that kind of situation again but if I do the Kaufman’s would be the firm I’d call. I highly recommend them."
