Millions Recovered For Injured People

August 2018 Archives

Five people hurt by alleged drugged driver face medical expenses

Encountering a drunk driver is something that happens all too frequently to motorists and pedestrians in Connecticut. Being hit by a drunk driver was once believed to have been almost exclusively due to the use of alcohol on that driver's part. However, in recent years drugged driving is adding a new layer of risk of being in a crash. Regardless of how the person became impaired, it is universal that they should not get behind the wheel. Unfortunately, many drivers do operate their vehicles while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and this causes many accidents with injuries and fatalities.

Workers' compensation high among juvenile detention employees

Workers' compensation benefits are available in Connecticut for those who are injured on the job. This applies to any kind of a job a person might have and is not limited to so-called "dangerous" jobs like those held by first responders, law enforcement, construction workers and anyone else in a physical and risky occupation. While many injuries occur in jobs that do not seem to be particularly risky, it is true that those who are in the more physically and emotionally arduous types of employment will be injured more frequently than someone who works in an office. For people who work in riskier jobs, it is imperative to remember the availability of workers' compensation benefits and how to get them.

Motorcyclist killed in fatal car crash where driver fled scene

Motorcycles are a common sight on the road in Connecticut. For the most part, drivers of conventional vehicles share the road with motorcyclists and everyone remains safe. However, motorcycle accidents do happen, and they can lead to serious injuries and fatalities.

Electrical worker injured on the job suffers burns

Connecticut workers in any job will face some semblance of risk. That includes those who are working in offices and other jobs where it does not appear that there will be substantial danger of being a work accident victim. Those who are in physical jobs or who work with dangerous materials place themselves in jeopardy as part of their duties. They are involved in multiple endeavors that utilize heavy equipment, machinery and electricity. Therefore, there is the very real possibility they could be injured on the job. After a work injury, it is crucial to understand the necessary steps to receive workers' compensation.

What should I know about workers' compensation medical exams?

Being injured on the job in Connecticut will bring many concerns and issues to the forefront. While workers' compensation benefits are available to cover for lost wages, medical expenses and more, there are certain requirements to get the benefits from the start. Some of the basics are the medical examination and the medical reports. Following the legal requirements is critical to getting the workers' compensation benefits.
