Attorney helps clients obtain workers' compensation benefits

When a Connecticut worker is injured on the job, he or she may have many questions. When will I be able to return to work? Will my job still be open when I am ready to return to work? How will I pay for my medical bills? How will I support my family while I am out of work? A workplace accident can be upsetting for many reasons, and these questions are common ones that Connecticut workers face.

Connecticut scaffold fall results in injured construction worker

Men and women who work on scaffolding are at risk for falls and, therefore, potentially serious injuries. Scaffolding may be unstable, and due to the heights at which workers are working, a scaffolding fall can result in major trauma for a Connecticut construction worker.

Are workers' compensation benefits available for travel injuries?

Some types of jobs require that a Connecticut worker sit at a desk all day. Others require that a worker move between job sites and travel significant distances. Many know that a worker who suffers a work-related injury may be eligible to recover workers' compensation benefits, but even injuries suffered while a worker is traveling may be covered. The general rule is that for such injuries to qualify for workers' compensation, the travel involved must be closely related to a worker's job duties.

How do fatal construction site accidents commonly occur?

Connecticut residents rely on the essential work performed by construction workers. These workers repair buildings and build new ones where Connecticut residents live and work. Unfortunately, this important work also comes with the risk of construction accidents, including the potential for fatal accidents.

Lawyer fights for Connecticut residents with workplace illnesses

Workplace illnesses come in a variety of forms. A shipyard worker may be exposed to asbestos and develop an asbestos-related illness. A police officer may develop depression after encountering many violent and serious situations on the job. Some illnesses may be unexpected, such as the delivery driver who developed post-traumatic stress disorder following a change in management at his job, as this blog reported in a previous post. Regardless of the type of illness a worker develops, all are serious situations that will require medical attention and can lead to medical expenses.
