Long Beach, California, 2020-May-28 — /EPR Network/ — Gaylord & Nantais, a leading workers’ compensation law firm, announces its offer of 24/7 legal counsel to essential workers in Long Beach, California.

During the COVID- 19 pandemic, many workers have been injured or have succumbed to coronavirus. Such workers are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, including death benefits if they were required to work during this health crisis and were exposed to the infection as a result of their job. The frontline workers of various sectors, including healthcare, law enforcement, grocery, and other businesses, have continued to operate during the pandemic. These employees were exposed to the public, which presents a significant risk of contracting the virus.

All the essential workers who get sick and if they have to miss the work for more than 3 days, workers’ compensation benefits might be available for them. Also, if a worker is permanently injured, a permanent disability award may be available.

Due to COVID-19, many workers have lost their jobs. Also, some workers were working in significant pain before they lost their jobs. Many workers have to continue to work in very difficult conditions, which require repetitive activities that can wear out their body parts like knees, back, neck, shoulders, and wrists, to name a few. In certain situations, these activities can cause pain and permanent loss to the function of their body parts.

In the worst case, if an essential worker dies, their spouse, children, and other dependents are left with financial stress. For such people, workers’ compensation benefits are available, which can help them in their difficult time by providing much-needed income.

“Due to the financial need to work or the fear of retaliation by an employer, many workers do not file claims or are scared to even mention their physical or mental injuries,” said Thomas Nantais, an expert workers’ compensation attorney at Gaylord and Nantais.

He said, “Every worker should know that repetitive cumulative trauma injuries are real, and it can have a devastating effect on their health and well-being. If left untreated, these injuries can prevent them from getting future employment and may require medical treatment, including surgery. So, if they are injured, they should claim workers’ compensation benefits.”

He further added, “All essential workers in pain and injuries should see a doctor and discuss their injuries with him or her to see if their injuries are work-related. In case they are unable to afford a doctor, they can seek the services of a workers’ compensation attorney and get a free consultation to discuss their injuries.”
