Helping Connecticut workers injured on-the-job

It is clear that certain industries present more risks to employees than others. However, this does not prevent residents in Connecticut from working in these industries. In most cases, the risk of injury or illness is apparent, causing employers and even federal agencies to step in and implement health and safety regulations and initiatives. While these steps might improve the safety within these industries, unfortunately, some workers still fall victim to workplace accidents.

Workers' compensation system benefits Connecticut workers

Connecticut workers who are injured on the job are often thrown into an unfamiliar situation. Used to working hard at their workplace, suddenly a worker may be unable to work for a period of time due to an accident at work. It can be helpful for injured workers to understand their rights following an injury so that they can try to recoup their financial losses while they focus on reclaiming their health and getting back to work.

Penalties imposed for not having workers' compensation coverage

Connecticut requires that employers carry workers' compensation coverage for their employees. Workers' compensation benefits may then be available for a worker if he or she is injured or becomes ill on the job. Not all employers comply with this requirement, however.

When ill or injured, Connecticut workers often seek the guidance of trained medical professionals. Whether an employee needs the assistance of a doctor to set a broken bone, evaluate potential carpal tunnel syndrome, or treat a case of heat exhaustion, as this blog reported on in a previous post, medical assistance is an essential part of dealing with work-related illnesses.
