When must injured Connecticut workers perform "light-duty" work?

When a Connecticut worker has been injured on the job, he or she may not be able to perform his or her regular work duties. An injured worker, whether he or she is suffering from a head injury, back injury or other workplace injury, may experience lingering health repercussions following a jobsite accident or illness. Some workers may be able to return to work following an injury, but not be capable of doing the exact job they were doing previously.

Workplace illness turns deadly during bathtub refinishing

Different Connecticut workplaces present different types of hazards. Construction workers are at risk for falling off scaffolding and being injured by machinery on the job. Shipyard workers may be exposed to asbestos and associated asbestos-related illnesses. Some workplace hazards and their attendant occupational illnesses may be more surprising, however, as was the case in a fatality that occurred after a worker was refinishing a bathtub.

Study reveals high rate of Connecticut workplace injuries

According to a new report, Connecticut workers are at risk. Specifically, the report, released by UConn Health, indicates that the rate of workplace injuries and illnesses is increasing at an alarming rate in the state, and is well above the national average for workers' injuries.

Connecticut lawyer helps workers injured on the job

Many Connecticut workers are experts in their fields. They know how to repair electrical wires, build large structures and maneuver heavy equipment. They are likely not experts in the legal field, however, and yet, if a worker is injured at his place of employment, he may need legal expertise to obtain the workers' compensation benefits he is owed.
