What is an Informal Hearing for workers' compensation?

Connecticut workers who are injured on the job or suffer an issue that prevents them from working can seek workers' compensation benefits. Often, these cases are undisputed and there is no hindrance to the worker receiving workers' compensation. However, there are some cases in which there is a disagreement that prevent a worker from getting the benefits immediately. This does not mean they will not get their benefits, but they will need to go through the hearing process before receiving them. The first step toward settling a disputed case is through an Informal Hearing.

Study shows increased risk of accidents with a distracted driver

Drivers in Connecticut and across the nation hear and see the stories about distracted driving and the dangers that accompany it. That, however, does not stop a vast number of drivers from taking part in the practice. When there is a car accident, one of the first things that the victims and their families will want to consider that it was because of a distracted driver. Given the problems after a crash, including serious injury and death, it is essential to have a full investigation into the case to determine its cause.

Does being released for light duty affect workers' compensation?

When a Connecticut worker is injured on the job and is temporarily unable to work, the time might eventually come when he or she can work again. In some instances, the only kind of work the person can do is "light duty" or "restricted" duty. When this happens, there are certain suggestions that the Workers' Compensation Commission will make to the worker to ensure that the available workers' compensation benefits can still be received.

Fatal workplace accident statistics released showing increases

There are certain jobs that place people in danger of being involved in a fatal accident, but these incidents are not limited to so-called "risky" jobs. When there is an accident that results in wrongful death, those who were affected by it should be aware of their right to seek compensation in a legal filing.
