Workers' Compensation Archives

How do you know it's time to return to work after a burn injury?

Burn injuries are serious. They can lead to infections, deformities and other chronic issues with your body. Severe burns range from the most painful to those that leave you without the nerve endings you need to recognize pain.

You can make a workers' compensation claim if you're hurt at work

No one plans to get hurt when they're at work, especially when the job isn't particularly dangerous. What you never expected was to be struck by another worker in your office as they backed up out of their space. As they hit you, you were knocked off balance and ended up hitting your head on a sharp edge.

Get workers' compensation coverage after any work injury

Imagine that you're working at your desk. There are no significant hazards around you. You reach up and pick up a heavy box above you, and you suddenly feel a snap along your shoulder. You've been working in the same position for many hours, and combined with the strain of the weight of the box, you're now struggling with a painful injury.

Workers' compensation provides more than medical care

Enacted in 1913, Connecticut's Workers' Compensation Act has been in existence for over a century. While it has changed over the years, the reality is that the program has maintained its goal of providing medical cost coverage and lost wage compensation to those who are hurt as a result of workplace accidents.

Fire team to appeal workers' compensation over rabies scare

One thing people need to know is if there are instances when workers' compensation won't cover an injury. For example, if you have shoulder injuries from your job, they're likely to be covered. However, if your medical provider warns you about conditions you could develop, those likely won't be covered. They're called prospective injuries, and there is no coverage for them.

We fight for your workers' compensation benefits

For people who work hard, their paycheck is a lifeline that provides them with the things they need to live. Without this, they are likely facing a tough road that will be filled without many of life's necessities. Sadly, this is exactly what might happen to some workers who are injured at work. We understand that you just want to go to work and make an honest living. When you have an accident in the process, you expect that you will be taken care of.

Crushing injuries can kill hardworking employees

Many workers face the possibility of being crushed by equipment and other items in the workplace. Preventing these crushing hazards must be a priority for companies with employees working under these conditions. Unlike a struck-by hazard, a crushing hazard catches the worker between two objects. One or both must be moving in a way that it crushes or suffocates the employee, usually in the abdomen or on the rib cage.
