Help With Workers' Comp Lawsuits In Connecticut
Most employers are required to provide workers' compensation coverage. The injured worker is able to make a claim for payment of medical expenses and can also receive partial payment for lost time from work. The coverage provides for both temporary and permanent disability benefits. For most workplace accidents, workers' compensation insurance provides the sole means of recovery. However, when the accident is caused by the fault of someone other than the employer or a fellow employee, the injured worker may have a right to sue in court.
