COVID Related Work Comp Claims Exceed 50,000


More than 50,000 Work Comp Claims Filed in 2020

According to the California Workers’ Compensation Claims Institute, CWCI,  the projected number of COVID-19  work comp
claims claims through October 2020 is a staggering 57,833!  One in every 9 work-related injury claims filed is COVID related.

Claims Trending Down for August-October

Numbers show that the peak of COVID related claims were mid-year with July hitting a peak of 14, 453.  However, subsequent
months showed a downward trajectory with reports for August, September, and October at 6710, 3779, and 2016 respectively.
Although more claims could yet be reported, numbers are still below the early counts reported for June and July indicating
that there has indeed been a protracted downward trend.

The CWCI has projected COVID related claims filed through October 2020 to reach 57,833.  Distribution by industry indicates
health care workers account for thelargest share of these claims followed by public safety/government workers.
