L’AQUILA – He died after contracting the covid and so Inail was asked by the heirs for an indemnity-compensation of half a million euros.

The heirs of FG, 56, a married bank employee from L’Aquila, turned to the Giustitalia Association, which reconstructed the incident in a note that we report in full.

The man contracted covid-19 on March 21 at his workplace, a downtown bank office.

After a careful investigation through the “tracking” of contacts, it was found that the banker had contracted the covid through contact with a positive colleague (before him).

The Giustitalia Association (www.associazionegiustitalia.it), which deals among other things with accidents at work, has filed an indemnity / compensation request on behalf of the heirs of one million euros.

The Association highlights that:

“Circular no. 22 of 20 May 2020, supplementing and clarifying the first indications provided with circular letter no. 13 of 3 April 2020, reiterates that Inail, pursuant to art. 42, c. 2 of the decree law 17 March 2020, n. 18, converted by law 24 April 2020, n.27, provides accident protection to workers who have contracted the SARS-Cov-2 infection during work, according to the consolidated legal principle that equates the virulent cause to the violent cause of the injury.

The indemnity for absolute temporary disability also covers the period of quarantine or fiduciary home stay – provided that the contagion is attributable to work – with the consequent abstention from work.

The costs of the accident events of the contagion do not affect the fluctuation of the average rate for accidents, but are charged to the insurance management, at an unchanged rate, and therefore do not entail higher costs for companies.

.

The circular also clarifies the criteria and methodology on which the Institute is based to admit cases of contagion from the new coronavirus that occurred during work as protection and the conditions for the possible start of the action for recourse, specifying to this end that in the absence of a proven violation of the contagion risk containment measures indicated by government and regional measures, it would be very difficult to hypothesize and prove the employer’s guilt.

Finally, in the circular it is clarified that the recognition of the professional origin of the contagion has no correlation with the civil and criminal liability profiles of the employer in the contagion itself, which can only be hypothesized in the event of a violation of the law or of obligations deriving from it. from experimental or technical knowledge, which in the case of the epidemiological emergency from Covid-19 can be found in the government and regional protocols and guidelines referred to in Article 1, paragraph 14 of Legislative Decree No. 33 of May 16, 2020 “.

A week ago a transaction for 500 thousand euros was signed by the heirs.
