About Our Section
This section aims to organize the members of the CBA who are workers’ compensation practitioners and to educate all members of the Bar from all sides at all levels of expertise as to workers’ compensation law. Furthermore, the section attempts to provide services to organizations other than the CBA when those organizations are involved in the Connecticut Workers’ Compensation system. The section works with all levels of government in an effort to improve the system. The Executive Committee will take positions on pending legislation where appropriate. It will work through committees on various issues that arise in the practice such as amicus briefs, creating new and exciting continuing legal education, and producing our publication Compensation Quarterly. The committee works with the Commission giving feedback on issues affecting day-to-day practice of the parties that appear before the Commission as they arise. The section consists of members who represent injured workers, employers and insurers, as well as the State of Connecticut and the Second Injury Fund.
