Connecticut court allows workers' comp benefits for PTSD

The Connecticut Supreme Court recently heard a case questioning whether a worker could qualify for worker's compensation benefits for post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Generally, psychological injuries alone are not covered under Connecticut's Workers' Compensation Act. This case provides an interesting review as it delves into whether a psychological injury that resulted from a physical injury that the worker suffered while on-the-job would qualify for benefits.

Third-party claims can significantly increase compensation for injured workers

But did you know that filing a third-party personal injury claim can significantly increase your total compensation after a workplace accident? This is only the case if certain circumstances apply.

Is your job causing heart disease, depression or other illnesses?

More than 3 million U.S. workers suffered nonfatal work illnesses and injuries in 2013, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. To improve these numbers, the National Institutes of Health Total Worker Health program recommends that employers consider more ways to keep workers healthy. By addressing issues such as employee stress levels, working conditions and work schedules, employers could improve the health and safety of their employees.

Connecticut drivers need to share the road with motorcycle riders

While motorcycles have the right to share the road with other vehicles, riders are enormously at risk due to the size of the vehicles that they are operating. Unfortunately, truck and automobile drivers often don't provide motorcycle riders the right of way or even look out for the presence of motorcycles on the road. This leads to collisions, and the injuries involved in motorcycle crashes are often catastrophic for the rider.
