What Kinds of Claims Fall Under Workers’ Compensation?

If you have been injured at work, you might not know that you can be compensated for your injuries under the Connecticut Workers’ Compensation Act. This law provides for medical treatment, wage replacement benefits, and other benefits for employees who have been injured at work or who have become ill from their jobs.

Connecticut Workers’ Compensation is a no-fault system. It does not matter if the accident was the employee’s fault or the employee was born with a medical condition that predisposed him or her to the injury or increased its severity. We have filed compensation claims for hundreds of injured workers over the years for injuries and accidents such as:

We often find that workers who are injured on the job also have an additional claim, especially in cases of car accidentstruck accidentswrongful death, and dog bites, if the injuries are work-related.

Unlike personal injury claims, the state of Connecticut allows you only one year from the time of your injury to file for benefits. For an occupational disease, the time to file is longer. Do not wait to call us if you think you have a claim.

At Carter Mario Law Firm, we make it our priority to get you the money you need to get back on your feet in the shortest amount of time. Our Connecticut workers’ compensation lawyers know how hard you work, and we’ll do everything we can to make sure your rights to compensation are protected.
