Have a Question About a Claim?
Claims involving work-related exposure to Covid have presented somewhat of a new paradigm in Kentucky Workers’ Compensation law, presenting new considerations for the compensability of communicable diseases. With several clients in the healthcare and “essential worker” industries, our team has been advising and defending employers in Covid claims since early in the pandemic.
Our analysis and defense of Covid workers’ compensation claims is grounded in a historical understanding of both occupational disease and specific-injury law in the Commonwealth and is aided by thorough discovery. Additionally, our team is well versed in the epidemiological and clinical understanding of Covid.
