Although accidents do happen, most workers in Connecticut and elsewhere do not expect to suffer tremendously because of a workplace accident. However, employees across the nation are victims of workplace injuries each and every day. While some of these injuries are minor and require little to no medical attention, others are severe and even debilitating. Thus, when an accident occurs in the work environment, injured workers not only need to understand the seriousness of their situation but also their rights and options when it comes to recovering compensation.
