Are you to blame for an injury in your dangerous job?

The simple answer is no. Even if you chose to work in a dangerous, high-stress job, you still have a right to workers' compensation if you are injured.

In Connecticut, workers' compensation is a no-fault system. This means that a worker who is injured on the job can get compensation regardless of who is at fault for the injury. So, even if you chose your profession or made a risky choice at work that caused your injury, you are entitled to benefits.

Injuries from accidents and from the nature of your work

As a paramedic or EMT, you face challenges and high-stress situations every day. You could injure your back or joints when lifting a patient. You may be a victim of assault on the job and sustain serious injuries. You could also develop hypertension, a heart condition or a repetitive stress injury over time.

These are just a few examples of the types of injuries you can develop as a part of your job. And all of these types of work injuries entitle you to workers' compensation benefits. Workers' compensation benefits cover medical treatment, and they can also cover a portion of your lost wages.

Don't' blame yourself. Take action.

Whether your injury developed over time or in an unexpected accident at work, you have the right to compensation. An attorney can help you understand the process to file a claim, and your lawyer can also help you if your claim is denied.
