Many Connecticut workers suffer catastrophic injuries on the job. Those who work in the railroad industry can experience spinal cord injuries, electrocution, serious burns and other disabling medical conditions as the result of railroad accidents. Such mishaps can occur in an instant, devastating lives when loved ones’ on-the-job injuries are fatal or permanently disabling.
Many people have no clue where to turn to seek support when a catastrophic or fatal injury wreaks havoc in their lives. If a loved one is able to survive a railroad injury, he or she may be unable to return to work or even perform basic daily functions regarding personal hygiene, eating or mobility. It can be quite difficult to find caregivers whose services meet a particular person’s needs.
Such care is expensive. It’s not uncommon for families struck by financial hardship following on-the-job accidents to be completely unprepared to handle the debt they incur. The fact is that they shouldn’t have to bear the entire burden of medical and living assistance expenses if another party’s negligence caused the accident that resulted in injury.
