All workers face at least some form of occupational hazard as a result of their employment, and workers' compensation plans are intended to help provide for workers if and when accidents do occur on the job. Generally speaking, in the state of Connecticut, workers' compensation claims can be filed for either accidental injuries, such as spinal or head injuries, that occurred while on the job or for occupational illnesses that a worker may have developed because of their work conditions.
Workers' compensation laws can be complex, however, and many workers may encounter difficulties in filing a claim on their own or in successfully resolving a dispute with their employer or their employer's insurer about the validity of their claim. At the Law Offices of Paul Levin, we have experience handling a wide variety of workers' comp claims in Connecticut, and we are ready to put our experience in this area of law to work for you.
Common Workers' Compensation Claims
Workers' compensation claims can arise in a number of different contexts, and the types of injuries and illnesses involved can vary significantly. The following are some of the most common reasons for workers and their families to file workers' compensation claims:
- Brain Injuries
- Car Accidents
- Construction Accidents
- Exposure to Harmful Chemicals
- Illness Related to Job Stress
- Machine Injuries
- Violence in the Workplace
- Wrongful Death
Additionally, it may be necessary for those pursuing a workers' compensation claim to simultaneously file other types of claims, including product liability and construction site accident claims. At the Law Offices of Paul Levin, we have the capacity to help those in these various positions with all of their legal needs.
