Workplace injuries can occur in any occupation and what is common in one may be next to impossible in another. However, if you sustain an on-the-job injury you may be entitled to file either a workers’ compensation claim or a personal injury lawsuit. The best way to determine what you are entitled to is by discussing your case with one of our Connecticut workplace injury attorneys.
If you or a loved one has been injured on the job, please contact Penner Law Firm or call 203-878-1254 today to schedule a free consultation with one of our Connecticut workplace injury lawyers.
Workplace injuries may be caused by events including:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Being run over
- Dangerous or defective equipment
- Chemical exposure
- Repetitive motion
When you are filing a workers’ compensation claim, the cause of your accident is most often irrelevant. Connecticut workers’ compensation law holds that so long as your injury occurred at work and was not a result of drug or alcohol use, you are entitled to medical and wage compensation. Cause becomes a central factor in personal injury lawsuits as liability must be established to secure the settlement or verdict you deserve.
