Connecticut Lawyers Seeking Benefits for Injured Workers
In Connecticut, there are several types of workers’ compensation benefits available to injured workers:
- Temporary total disability: If you are unable to work, you can receive up to 75 percent of your previous wage while unable to work.
- Temporary partial disability: If you are not able to work in the same job because of restrictions, you can receive up to 75 percent of the difference between your previous salary and your current salary.
- Permanent partial disability: Permanent partial disability benefits are paid to workers who lose the use of a body part or limb. Connecticut law lists each type of injury, and the amount of benefits you receive will depend on the amount of use you have lost.
- Additional benefits: If you recover but have permanent loss of ability, you may be entitled to additional benefits. Death benefits are also available to family members who lose a loved one in a fatal work accident.
