Connecticut Worker’s Compensation Laws

Connecticut worker’s compensation laws have enacted certain legal provisions with an objective to protect employees who suffer from occupational injuries or diseases. These laws in the state of Connecticut have also been designed in a way that makes the employers accountable to meet the state standards for workers compensation insurance. The laws clearly state that any worker who gets injured while on the job is entitled to proper medical care and it is the legal duty of the employer to make sure that the injured employee gets proper treatment in time. Some employers try to avoid the compensation filing by convincing the employee for a “mutual settlement”. Workers are strongly recommended not to enter into any such mutual agreement; they deserve a better amount of compensation, which they can get only when they go through the proper channel.
