Farm worker injured on the job by cow, breaks jaw

Connecticut workers can be injured on the job in many circumstances. This is not limited to construction work, first responders or even those who are naturally in harm's way due to the requirements of the job. Anyone can suffer a workplace injury that makes it necessary to receive medical treatment and think about how they are going to make ends meet while they recover. This is the reason for workers' compensation. After being injured on the job, it is important to understand the right to receive workers' compensation benefits and take the necessary steps to get it.

One study says that an unexpected group that engages in distracted driving is parents and caregivers with young children in the vehicle with them.
