Four hurt in Connecticut construction accident

Four people were hurt recently in a construction site accident when workers were trying to lift a heavy cast-iron bath tub to the third floor of a home under construction in Connecticut. The workers were carrying the tub, which weighs between 200 and 300 pounds, when the temporary stairs they were using collapsed beneath them.

Workers' compensation covers heart attack after shift was over

Connecticut's workers' compensation system provides benefits for workers who are injured on the job. That doesn't necessarily mean that the worker has to be in the office at the time of the injury. For example, a worker who is injured while driving an employer's truck on a delivery run would most likely be eligible for workers' compensation.

Workers' compensation can apply to work-related illness

Connecticut's workers' compensation system doesn't cover only injuries caused by work-related accidents, it can also cover work-related illnesses. Whether the problem is a repetitive strain injury or an illness caused by long-term exposure to toxic chemicals, these work-related illnesses develop over time until they require medical treatment.

Connecticut Supreme Court upholds worker's right to benefits

Having a job or a career is often an important component in life. When a worker is injured on the job, this might prevent them from working for an extended amount of time while they recover from the work injury. Furthermore, the injured worker is left with a pile of medical bills and filing a claim could help alleviate these financial hardships.
