Workers' comp may provide relief for asbestos-related illnesses

Many Connecticut residents are aware of the dangers of asbestos. Asbestos, which was commonly used in shipyards and industrial facilities, as well as old schools or public buildings, has microscopic fibers that a person can breathe in. These fibers cause damage to a person's lungs and can lead to mesothelioma cancer. A person who has worked in one of these facilities, or in another facility in which asbestos was present, may have been put at risk for mesothelioma cancer through possible long-term exposure to toxic chemicals.

Connecticut bill may cover home aide workers' compensation

Working as a home health aide is difficult work. Home health aides assist people who are elderly, ill, disabled or impaired. They help their clients with tasks of daily living, including physical tasks such as helping them stand or move. An injured worker may not be able to fully complete all of the tasks required of a home health aide.

Construction accidents common cause of workers' injuries

Construction work is essential and important work, but it can also be dangerous. Connecticut residents may be interested in the U.S. Occupational Safety & Health Administration's statistics that reflect the danger of construction accidents.

Can workers' compensation cover out-of-state injuries?

Connecticut's worker's compensation system is administered by the state government for the benefit of people who live and work in Connecticut. Still, workers' compensation may cover injuries that happen out of state if there is a significant relationship between the state where the claim is filed and the location of the employment. In some instances, work-related injuries may happen out of state, particularly for workers whose jobs require them to travel, like truck drivers.
