Connecticut Workers’ Compensation Benefits
For most workers after suffering work-related injuries, the first and most pressing questions involve the benefits available. Even with minor workplace injuries, covering the significant costs of medical care can be a real concern. If you are completely out of work or limited in the types of work functions you can perform, covering the costs of lost wages is another major concern. After a work-related injury, it is important to work with a legal team that has the experience, knowledge and tenacity to help you get the results you need.

- Medical care: One of the primary goals of workers’ compensation is to make sure injured workers have their medical care covered from work-related injuries.
- Lost wages: In most cases, lost wages are only available for injured workers whose injuries will keep them out at least three or more days. Temporary total disability is available for workers who are completely unable to work for a short time.
- Lifetime benefits: People with scars and other long-term injuries can be eligible for compensation in the form of a lifetime benefit.
