Pursuing compensation for your workplace illness

Workplace accidents and injuries happen in every industry and place of employment. However, not all Connecticut workers may realize how prevalent the problem of workplace illnesses is for Bridgeport residents and others throughout the state. There are a variety of ways that workers may contract illnesses from their places of employment, and in some cases the losses workers sustain from their workplace illnesses may be compensable.

Overview of potential liability for construction site accidents

When a Connecticut construction worker is hurt while on the job it can be challenging to know exactly who might be responsible for their injuries. Depending upon how the injury-causing accident happened and where the incident occurred there are a variety of parties that may be fully or partially liable for the worker's damages and harm. This post will generally discuss some of the entities that may serve as defendants in a personal injury case based on the harm suffered by a construction worker. Readers are cautioned, though, that every case of this type is different and as such the contents of this post should not be relied on as legal guidance.

A supportive work environment can increase accident reporting

Most Connecticut employees and workers spend so much time at their offices or worksites that they consider it their second home. They enjoy the camaraderie they have with their co-workers and the feeling of importance they get when they complete a task or are part of a large team working together. It is this social interaction that some studies suggest they miss the most when they are missing work due to an injury sustained in a workplace accident. In fact, when employers checked in with injured employees and demonstrated their support for them, it went a long way in establishing trust between employee and employer.
