California COVID Workplace Death Attorneys

Sign that says "coronavirus pandemic"

Nadrich & Cohen is vigorously representing the loved ones of California employees who contracted COVID-19 on the job and died. We are handling COVID-19 work-related cases illnesses which lead to death. We are seeking worker’s compensation death benefits for employees’ families.

The cases we accept are as follows: an employee must have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or tested positive for it within 14 days after performing work for the employer, at the employers location and the employee died as a result.

If this is happened to a member of your family, we want to represent you on a contingency basis. There is no charge to you. Workers’ compensation death benefits are available under a new order signed by Governor Newsom on May 5, 2020. Because of that order we intend on obtaining full benefits for our clients including death benefits.

COVID-19 Workplace Death Lawyers

Employers have always been bound by morals and the law to provide their employees with safe workplaces, even before the COVID-19 pandemic. Employers must be held responsible when they put employees in danger of contracting COVID-19 by violating health ordinances, safety ordinances or employment law. The experienced personal injury lawyers at Nadrich & Cohen have been holding companies responsible for unsafe conditions for over three decades.

California employers have several responsibilities regarding COVID-19. Employers must disclose to employees when their co-workers have COVID-19 symptoms or test positive for COVID-19. Employers must take steps to protect their employees from COVID-19, such as providing masks and performing regular surface sanitization. Violations of these responsibilities are possible grounds for COVID-19 lawsuits in California.

Cal/OSHA has specific COVID-19 workplace guidelines, including:

  • Limits on how many people can be in a building at once
  • Making sure workers and customers are socially distanced
  • Making sure workplace surfaces are sanitized by an approved solution
  • Making sure stronger hand-washing and sanitization standards are implemented compared with pre-pandemic standards
  • Not letting workers who test positive for COVID-19 show up to work-related
  • Staying vigilant for the symptoms and signs of COVID-19
  • Making sure all employees are trained on COVID-19 protocols

Call us today for a free consultation if you’ve lost a loved one due to COVID-19 and believe your loved one contracted COVID-19 due to a violation of any of the above guidelines.
