FELA offers protection for injured Connecticut railroad workers

Railroads provide convenient transportation for many people in Connecticut. They also carry a large share of the nation's freight and provide jobs for many workers. But railroad facilities can also be dangerous working environments for those who work in or around the trains. Fortunately, under the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA), railroad employees who suffer an on-the-job injury have a legal remedy if the railroad's negligence contributed to the injury.

What are OSHA's workplace injury reporting requirements?

An injury at work can create a hectic and chaotic environment. As an injured worker is dealing with the pain of an arm injury or suffering the repercussions of a serious fall, other workers may be scrambling to help the worker, and wondering what should be done. One thing that must be done following certain work-related injuries is proper reporting of such injuries. OSHA considers work-related fatalities, illnesses or injuries to be ones in which an event in the work environment contributed to, caused, or even significantly aggravated, a person's medical condition.

Connecticut worker deaths on the decline, report says

When a Connecticut worker begins experiencing pain while performing his or her job, they may become concerned not only for their physical well being but also for their job as well. An injured worker may wonder if the pain will interfere with his or her job to such an extent that they will need to stop working completely or require medical treatment that will require them to be away from work for a period of time.

Construction workers in Connecticut and elsewhere have potentially dangerous jobs.
