Exposed to COVID-19 On the Job? We Can Help
At the Soofer Law Group, we may be able to help construction workers who were exposed to COVID-19 (the coronavirus) while on the job recover compensation for medical bills and other expenses. The State of California classified construction as an essential industry during the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing thousands of construction workers to remain on the job. It is an employer’s responsibility to keep workers reasonably safe from exposure to foreseeable hazards while at work – including viruses. The negligent failure to do so, resulting in serious illness or the death of a loved one, could give you grounds to file a civil claim against the construction company. Discuss your rights in detail with one of our attorneys today.
