Connecticut workers' comp helps truck drivers, other employees

Workers' compensation is designed to help employees of all kinds. There are some industries that may be more prone to risk than others, such as those who put themselves in harm's way -- like police or firefighters -- or those who operate machinery -- like truck drivers or factory workers. Despite the inclusiveness of the Connecticut Workers' Compensation Act, many people are still left with questions about whether they can use these benefits. Here at Brown Paindiris & Scott, LLP, we have assisted many types of workers at a time in their lives when they often need it most.

Workers' compensation is designed to provide benefits to employees who have injured themselves, are not in the hospital, and are able to return to work for light tasks but have no opportunity to do said tasks in their workplace. It can also cover medical expenses related to the injurious incident. If an employee has hurt himself or herself to the point that certain body parts are no longer functioning, he or she could receive benefits as well. Employees cannot be fired for making a claim, as per provisions outlined in the Connecticut Workers' Compensation Act.

Our team at Brown Paindiris & Scott, LLP, has worked with clients who have been denied benefits by their employer's insurance. They can file a claim with the Workers' Compensation Commission in this instance. Workers' compensation cases can take a great deal of time, and we have the experience and dedication needed to see that they are properly managed.

From truck drivers to medical professionals, if you or someone you care for is considering filing a workers' comp claim, you have the right to explore all options in order to determine what is best for you. Our team is fully qualified to handle these types of cases. If you have more questions, our workers' compensation webpage may be a helpful resource.
