CT considers expanding workers' comp benefits for firefighters

While the workers' compensation laws in many states automatically presume cancer to be an occupational risk for firefighters, sadly Connecticut laws do not. In fact, Connecticut firefighters may not even be able to collect workers' compensation benefits if they develop cancer after exposure to hazardous substances and carcinogens while fighting fires. Even worse, families of firefighters who die of cancer may not be able to collect benefits either.
