Seizure at Work - Connecticut

Question: An employee had a seizure at work. The worker is in his sixties and has never experienced a seizure prior to this. The worker did not suffer any injuries but was given prescription medication. There is no indication that the workplace/environment played any part in his seizure. Is it compensable? Is it compensable? -Nate B. 1/9/21


Generally speaking, these injuries are not considered compensable, because they don't "arise out of or in the course of employment." Connecticut has a provision that allows for compensation if the pre-existing condition was aggravated by work arising out of or in the course of employment, but only the percentage that is deemed work related. This claim would likely be denied as being 'non-work related.' -McKell S.1/17/21
