Because workers' compensation is a no-fault system in this state, it does not matter whose negligence caused your injuries. Generally, traumatic injury and occupational illness are covered by workers' compensation. In Connecticut, 'pain and suffering' and other non-economic losses are not covered. Often, claims are denied for reasons that are not explained.
If you have been injured working for a Connecticut business, you have legal rights. However, your employment status may disqualify you from benefits. Employees not covered under the laws in Connecticut include casual employees, independent contractors, sole proprietors or business partners. When you have been injured at work and have questions about your rights or compensation, call Vargas Chapman Woods LLC. When you have questions, call our office for answers: call (860) 754-1400.
