State-To-State Representation For Injured Workers

The employee and employer relationship sometimes crosses state borders. This can complicate matters when a worker is injured while on the job. For example: what happens if a nonresident of Connecticut gets injured driving a truck for a company based in Connecticut? Which state workers' compensation law should apply to cover his work injury? Where should the injured worker get a lawyer? These are all complex issues that can arise in state-to-state workers' comp cases.

What Kinds Of State-To-State Situations Do We Handle?

There are numerous state-to-state and out-of-state workers' comp scenarios. However, here are the main types of situations our law firm represents:

1. When a non-Connecticut resident gets injured while working in Connecticut for a company based out of state.

Example: A contractor from a New York-based company takes a development job in Connecticut. While working in Connecticut, he suffers a serious injury due to a scaffolding accident.

2. When a non-Connecticut resident gets injured while working out of state for a company based in Connecticut.

Example: A delivery driver (Delaware resident) makes a delivery to a Connecticut-based factory. While driving through Connecticut, she gets in a fatal motor vehicle accident.

3. When a Connecticut resident gets injured while working out of state for a company based in Connecticut.

Example: A Connecticut-based manufacturing plant sends a manager to check out a sister plant in Massachusetts. The manager is a resident of Connecticut. While at the Massachusetts plant, the manager falls off a ladder and becomes seriously injured.
