A Connecticut worker can contract many different types of illnesses on the job. Some working environments may create hazards that lead to lung disease. Other jobs may create stressful or high-intensity situations that result in depression. Still others may pose the risk of illnesses that are ultimately fatal, as this blog reported in a previous post.
Regardless of the type of occupational disease a worker confronts, he or she will need medical care and, most likely, time away from work to heal and recover fully. The idea that a worker may need to take time away from work can be stressful for many Connecticut residents. Fortunately, when a worker is injured or becomes ill on the job, he or she may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits which can help cover a worker’s expenses and costs, such as those for medical care or to reimburse lost wages.
