Chemical exposure can lead to workplace illness

Most Connecticut residents go to work expecting to do their jobs and feel a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day. They most likely do not expect to go to work and come home sick and suffering. Unfortunately, however, some Connecticut workers may develop occupational illnesses that stem from the workplace, particularly if there are chemicals present on the jobsite.

What types of injuries are covered by workers' compensation?

The system of workers' compensation benefits allows workers to request payment of benefits if they have been injured or become ill in the course of their employment. The system works as a tremendous safety net for employees who suffer from a work-related back injury or other work-related injury to allow an injured worker, and his or her employer, to avoid litigation while still providing a much-needed fixed monetary award to the worker.

Nail guns can lead to Connecticut construction workers' injuries

Many construction workers work with nail guns regularly. They serve as effective tools to quickly frame a structure or perform other carpentry tasks. For many Connecticut workers and employers, the use of nail guns is routine, but it should be noted that nail guns can lead to serious construction worker injuries and even death.

What are discretionary workers' compensation benefits?

An injured Connecticut worker will likely have a number of pressing concerns after an on-the-job accident, especially if he or she is unable to work. Many of these concerns may be financial. Fortunately, workers who are injured on the job may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits. These benefits include payment for medical expenses, lost wages and other monetary benefits.
