Everyday, residents in Connecticut go to work. This might seem like a routine action and is a very necessary part of life, providing a livable income to individuals in all areas, industries and careers, but it can quickly turn into a dangerous activity. An employee can suffer a workplace injury or illness in a workplace accident, which could prove detrimental to his or her health. One of these incidences could result in the inability to work, either temporarily or permanently. Therefore, it is important for employees, no matter where they work, to understand their rights and options following a workplace accident.
Because workers rely on their income to maintain their lifestyle and pay for their basic needs, it is in their best interests to get the medical treatment they need to allow them to recover and return to work.
