Workers’ Compensation or Personal Injury Claim – Which Is Right for You?
Connecticut’s workers’ compensation system provides no-fault benefits to most injured employees in the state. Filing a workers’ comp claim means that you can recover compensation for many of your losses without having to prove that someone else caused your injuries. However, the amount available is limited. You can only receive two-thirds wage reimbursement, for example, and cannot claim pain and suffering damages. For this reason, if you believe that someone else is responsible for your work injuries, it is in your best interest to discuss the possibility of a personal injury lawsuit with an attorney.
If you accept a workers’ comp settlement in Connecticut, you no longer have the right to bring a lawsuit against your employer for negligence. Negligence is the failure to act with reasonable care, resulting in harm to employees. A lawsuit against your employer could result in greater financial compensation for your injuries and losses. If a third party caused your injuries, however, such as the manufacturer of a defective product that injured you while at work, you may be able to recover through both types of claims. Consult with an attorney about your specific situation to decide which legal route is best for you.
