How Do I Know If I Am Eligible for Workers’ Compensation Benefits?
According to the Workers’ Compensation Commission of Connecticut, the Connecticut Workers' Compensation System “covers almost all employees, including minors, non-citizens, and part-time employees, regardless of occupation, business size, duration of employment, or number of hours worked per day” with very few exceptions. This means that nearly any employee in Connecticut who sustained an injury at work or contracted an occupational disease is likely eligible to receive assistance of some kind. Additionally, the family members of an employee who passed away in such an accident may receive compensation as well.
What Is Your Best Advice for How to Secure Maximum Benefits?
A positive outcome in a workers’ compensation case can result in compensation for any of the following:
- Medical treatment
- Physical therapy or rehabilitation
- Temporary or permanent disability benefits
- Lost wages incurred due to missed work
The best advice we can give is to report an injury to work as soon as it becomes clear that it’s a problem, and then call our Connecticut workers’ compensation lawyers immediately thereafter. The longer you wait on each of these issues, the more power you give to either the employer or the insurer to act unethically regarding you and your injury. People with workplace injuries need to take action to protect and defend themselves sooner rather than later.
Working to Give You Every Advantage

The average injured worker may only have one claim in a lifetime, but we handle thousands. Because of this, our knowledge is extensive.
