Connecticut workers’ compensation covers all employees in the state, whether full-time or part-time, from the first day of employment. Workers’ comp pays for medical care as well as wage replacement and other benefits. It’s the exclusive remedy for a work-related injury or illness. You can’t sue your employer or a co-worker, even if their negligence caused the accident.
On the plus side, workers’ compensation is a no-fault system. You don’t have to prove that someone else was negligent, and you don’t have to prove that you weren’t to blame. On the downside, securing benefits can be an uphill battle, with employers and their insurers trying their hardest to delay or deny your claim, or terminate your benefits as soon as possible, even before you’ve fully recovered. The Morizio Law Firm provides the practical guidance and persuasive advocacy you need to make sure your benefits are paid appropriately – on time and in full. If you get hurt on the job in Connecticut, call Morizio Law firm for immediate assistance.
