Safety hazards abound for Connecticut firefighters on the job

The potential for work accidents exists at all Connecticut workplaces, but some workplaces and types of work are inherently riskier than others. One especially risky form of work is firefighting.

Workers' compensation attorneys advocate for the injured

Suffering a workplace injury is frightening not just due to the pain and suffering caused by the injury itself, but also because of how it may affect one's job. In a recent post, this blog reported on a construction accident that injured three Connecticut workers. The workers fell almost 30 feet while working on a building near train tracks. While their injuries were luckily not fatal, they will undoubtedly be out of work for a long period of time while they recover, and their medical expenses will be very high. Workers' compensation benefits can help them with these costs.

How is a neck injury examined in a CT workers' comp case?

Workers' compensation is in place in Connecticut to help workers mitigate lost wages, medical costs and recover without having to worry about an inability to support themselves after a workplace injury. The state has certain criteria when they investigate a case to determine whether or not a worker is eligible to receive benefits. Those who suffer various injuries need to understand what is studied when there is an injury. One particular injury that can have numerous causes and effects is a neck injury.

What are the symptoms of the occupational disease carpal tunnel?

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a serious work-related health issue for many Connecticut workers. Those who are finding themselves with a problem completing their work tasks and don't believe that they're going to be able to secure benefits through workers' compensation might be mistaken. Knowing the symptoms of carpal tunnel is the first step to pursuing benefits.
