Workers' Compensation Attorney in Hartford
What Is Workers’ Compensation?
According to Connecticut state law, almost every employer must provide their workers' with some form of workers' compensation in case of a personal injury sustained while on the job. Unless an employee waives such compensation in writing, he or she has every right to seek compensation for a workplace injury through their employer's insurance.
There is one major problem that tends to arise in such situations. Because an employer's insurance rate could rise if they cover an employee's injury, they may be reluctant to accept the employee's claim.
They may even try to intimidate the employee or threaten him or her with wrongful termination should they pursue workers' comp. If you are in such a situation, a Hartford personal injury lawyer can be contacted for help.
How Is Liability Proven?
If you have waived your eligibility for workers' comp, or if your workplace accident was directly caused by your own recklessness, negligence or intent, then you do not have a case for a workers' comp claim. Your injury must have been caused by your employer and/or a third liable party.
