COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on the lives of people throughout the United States. While some of those afflicted with COVID-19 have recovered fully, others have not. Many people are reporting having experienced various long-term illnesses and effects after recovering from COVID-19. It is not a stretch to see these long-term consequences having a damaging effect on the earnings capacity of people who were exposed to the coronavirus in the workplace.
If you are suffering from ongoing damage from COVID-19, you should not have to bear that burden alone. At The Klein Law Group, P.C., we are strong advocates for injured and disabled workers in the five boroughs and surrounding areas of New York. We look forward to helping you pursue all available workers’ compensation benefits for your lost wages and medical expenses.
COVID-19: A Disease With Long-Term Consequences For Many
For some COVID-19 survivors, it may be too early to tell what the long-term effects of contracting COVID-19 may be. For others, we are already seeing ongoing, long-term problems such as:
- Respiratory damage
- Organ failure
- Blot clots
It is possible to assume that these long-term issues will result in long-term disruption of your earnings capacity if you are suffering from them. If your long-term COVID complications result in the need for limited duty, a leave of absence or the need to find a new career, workers compensation can provide benefits such as:
- Wage loss benefits (up to two-thirds of your lost weekly wage)
- Medical and rehabilitation benefits
- Re-education and training benefits
