As we see all too often, workplace accidents and injuries disable, even kill, hundreds of workers in Connecticut each year. Injuries range from a sprained wrist to a serious and debilitating back injury.
An on the job injury can cause you to lose more than a paycheck or two. You may be unable to return to the job you once held. Even if you go back to work, a serious workplace injury can leave you in constant pain and without the compensation to pay for ongoing and expensive therapy and surgeries.
If you have been injured while at work you have the right to be compensated for more than lost wages. According to Connecticut law you may be eligible for medical and surgical bills, physical therapy, medical equipment, mileage to and from medical appointments and any permanent disability.
