Does Your Condition Or Injury Qualify For Workers’ Compensation?
While some work injuries are physical and obvious, like broken bones or burns, many conditions that may be covered under a workers’ compensation claim are more subtle. For example, conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are covered under workers’ compensation. Other physical conditions like heart disease and hypertension for qualifying police officers and firefighters are increasingly being recognized as workers’ compensation conditions.
Connecticut’s workers’ compensation laws cover a range of work-related injuries and conditions, including:
- Injuries caused by accidents or mistakes on the jobsite, such as slip-and-fall accidents, burn injuries, and broken bones
- Injuries that occur while you are traveling for work
- Repetitive trauma injuries, occupational diseases and/or exposures
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), heart disease and hypertension for qualifying police officers and firefighters
- Aggravations of pre-existing conditions
This is not an exhaustive list. When you call us for a free consultation, we can advise you regarding whether your injuries might be covered under workers’ compensation.
What Types Of Benefits Does Workers’ Compensation Provide?
If you qualify for workers’ compensation benefits, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, physical therapy and other ongoing medical care and expenses. In addition, if a family member is killed on the job, you may qualify for death benefits.
The benefits that you may be eligible to receive depend on the extent of your injury, and the impact of the injury on your ability to perform your job or maintain gainful employment in the future. Our knowledgeable attorneys can help maximize the value of your claim.
