Millions Recovered For Injured People

May 2017 Archives

Understanding exemptions for workers compensation programs


When workers are injured, no matter the industry, it can be a shocking experience. Even when there are high risks and dangers associated with a job, many employees in Connecticut and elsewhere are not prepared to deal with the aftermath of a workplace accident. This is especially true if an employee of a small company or contractor is injured, but the employer has not paid into a workers' compensation program.

What are the employer responsibilities in a workers' comp claim?


When employees in Connecticut and elsewhere suffer a work injury, this can be a serious situation. In some cases, a work accident could leave an employee temporarily or permanently disabled. This can make it nearly impossible for the employee to work or return to work anytime soon. Such a matter could result in financial distress. However, workers' compensation benefits could be claimed. These benefits not only help offset the burdens and hardships an injured worker might experience, it also places some responsibilities and requirements on an employer.

Pedestrian fatality in hit-an-run accident in Greenwich


Traveling by foot is not uncommon for Connecticut residents. In fact, many prefer walking or running in order to spend time outside and add more exercise to their life. No matter the reason a person is walking on a sidewalk or on the side of the road, the reality is that most pedestrians walk near motor vehicle traffic. This can pose some serious risks, especially if a driver is not attentive or isn't following the rules of the road.
