A BRIEF HISTORY OF WORKERS' COMPENSATION IN CONNECTICUT In 1913, a significant stride was made with the enactment of the Connecticut Workers' Compensation Act. This led to the formation of the Connecticut Workers' Compensation Commission, a body entrusted with handling claims, framing regulations, and administering statutes within the ambit of the act.

With its headquarters stationed in Hartford and 8 district offices dispersed throughout the state in cities like Bridgeport, Hartford, and New Haven among others, they maintain a robust presence to facilitate the claim process for all workers.

NAVIGATING WORKERS' COMP AND PERSONAL INJURY CLAIMS The aftermath of a work-related injury often brings with it the dilemma of choosing between filing a workers' compensation claim and a personal injury claim. Our dedicated team ensures that you understand the nuances of each path before making an informed decision.

UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENCES At the heart of the difference between these two claims is the concept of fault. A personal injury claim necessitates the establishment of fault, whereas a workers' compensation claim operates irrespective of it.

PERSONAL INJURY CLAIMS In instances where a third party's negligence leads to your injury, you have the option to initiate a personal injury claim. Whether it's an accident involving an improperly loaded truck or a slip and fall incident due to unmarked hazards, we help you build a strong case to establish the other party's negligence.

WORKERS' COMPENSATION CLAIMS In scenarios where your workplace injury was accidental or self-inflicted and not a result of negligence, your primary recourse is to file a workers' compensation claim. The strength of these claims lies in the fact that establishing liability isn't a requirement. As long as the injury occurred during work hours, you are eligible to receive benefits.

MAKING THE RIGHT CHOICE Our expert guidance can assist you in determining the best route to take in instances where both claims are viable options. While personal injury claims offer higher compensation due to the inclusion of pain and suffering damages, they are more challenging to prove compared to workers' compensation claims, which are more straightforward but potentially offer lesser compensation.

WORKERS' COMP FAQ WHAT DOES WORKERS' COMPENSATION ENTAIL? In Connecticut, workers' compensation serves as a protective net offering benefits and covering medical expenses for employees who have encountered injuries or illnesses in the line of duty. It encompasses both part-time and full-time workers.

HOW IS WORKERS' COMPENSATION CALCULATED? The computation of workers' compensation benefits is based on your average weekly wages, which considers your earnings after deductions like taxes and Social Security up to a period of 52 weeks preceding the incident. The exact benefits vary based on the specific type of benefits you are eligible for.
