The Workers’ Compensation Act in Connecticut was first enacted in 1913. Although there have been many changes over the years, the goal of the act remains to provide wage replacement and benefits, as well as medical treatment, for employees who have been injured, disabled or killed while performing their jobs.
Disputes often arise over the connection between an injury and work, when and how much benefits are owed, or if medical treatment options are reasonable or necessary.
For those who will never reclaim their past ability to work, workers’ compensation offers ongoing assistance to injured workers and their families.
