High-stress jobs can lead to serious health issues

Working in a high-stress environment - whether as a police officer, a firefighter or in a similar job - can take a toll on your health. It can lead to high blood pressure, which is also known as hypertension. Over time, high blood pressure can cause other serious health complications.

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.

BLOG RE INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR

Cousins - Al Blog Photo.jpgOn Friday, April 25, 2014, I was invited by the Civil Justice Foundation of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association to speak at a seminar about Independent Contractors and workers' compensation.
