How much do Connecticut employers pay for workers' compensation?

In Connecticut, no matter what the risk factor of a job is, employees who are injured at work are entitled to workers' compensation. This kind of insurance gives workers confidence that there is assistance available in case an injury does occur. Still, sometimes employers aren't aware of the proper procedures after an on-the-job injury, or an employer will try to deny a claim. In any case, people who are injured on the job would do well to consult with a workers' compensation attorney.

Work-related injury is a fit case for workers' compensation

Workplace accidents are more common than many people may realize. A work-related injury can result in permanent disability and significant loss of income. Workers in Fairfield County and throughout Connecticut should be aware of their rights in case of an injury.

When someone is injured at work, and files a workers' compensation with their employer, there are many obvious expenses that a person might incur and request payment for from an employer's workers' compensation insurance. What about after the initial doctor's appointments and treatment phases? Many people don't think about long-term treatments that might be needed and possible complications that might occur as a result of the injury.

Connecticut: Statistics show work-related deaths lower in 2011

That year 57 people died on the job, including five who were shot at the Connecticut Lottery headquarters in Newington on Mar. 6, 1998.
