Home What We Do Workers' Compensation COVID-19

Helping Essential Workers Who Have Contracted COVID-19 At Work

Whether you are a healthcare worker, prison guard, cashier, postal worker, grocery store worker, or in another essential worker position, if you have contracted COVID-19, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. With COVID-19 continuing to spread in California and the United States at alarmingly high rates, many frontline workers are at risk of contracting COVID-19 due to their work or have already contracted the virus at work. We want to help and ensure that you receive the benefits and care you deserve.

At Ghitterman, Ghitterman, and Feld, many of our attorneys are Board Certified Worker’s Compensation specialists with decades of experience who are better prepared to represent those injured workers who have been infected with COVID-19. We are experts at relentlessly protecting our client’s rights
