Every year millions of workers across the country suffer on-the-job injuries. The National Safety Council (NSC) estimates that an employee is hurt on the job every seven seconds, which works out to about 7 million injuries a year. If you suffered a workplace injury in Connecticut, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, time missed from work and other damages.
According to the NSC, these three categories of work incidents account for more than 84 percent of all workers’ comp claims:
Rounding out the top five causes of occupational injury are transportation accidents (5.6 percent) and violence and other incidents involving people or animals (5 percent).
The three most common injuries from workplace accidents, according to the NSC, are:
Other frequent injuries include back and neck damage, bone fractures and dislocations, as well as concussions and other traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
The amount you can receive in workers’ compensation will depend on how you got hurt, the severity of the injury, whether you were an employee or independent contractor and several other variables. An experienced Connecticut workers’ comp lawyer will be able to assess your situation and explain whether you may be entitled to benefits beyond workers’ comp as well, such as long- or short-term disability, SSI or personal injury damages.
