Lawyers Who Understand Connecticut Workers' Compensation Law

Have you been injured on the job? Connecticut law provides a remedy for injured workers. If you were injured on the job, you have a right to receive workers' compensation benefits. Our skilled Connecticut work injury lawyer can assist you in obtaining those benefits. The types of benefits that may be provided include:

  • Compensation for a percentage of your lost wages
  • Payment of medical bills
  • Continued medical care
  • Payment for permanent disability
  • Compensation for an occupational disease or other hazard
  • Death benefits for dependent family members (if a worker is fatally injured)

In certain circumstances, a worker may also have a right to file a third-party personal injury claim against someone besides his or her employer. Because our New Haven County workers' compensation attorneys handle both workers' compensation and third-party liability claims, we can help you explore your full range of options for compensation.

Know Your Rights

If you are an injured worker and do not know your rights, the system may take advantage of your situation. You only have a limited time to report your injury to your employer and a limited time to file a workers' compensation claim.

Your employer or their insurance carrier may attempt to steer you to a doctor of their choice. Before you take steps in the wrong direction, contact a workers' compensation attorney at our firm to learn more about your legal rights and options. We will explain the process in clear, plain terms so you know exactly what is going on and what to expect during your case.

How Can We Help?

In most situations, you are entitled by law to consult with your own doctor. Your employer will likely send you to an industrial clinic. Going to a doctor of your employer's choice could have three disadvantages. First, your care may be delayed. Second, the doctor may not have the correct specialty to deal with your injury in the best manner possible. Third, once you have established a relationship with a particular doctor, you may not be able to switch.

Contacting a lawyer right away is always the best solution. We can help you find a qualified doctor. Also, as many workers' compensation claims are denied, we can provide a vigorous defense of your rights from the outset. We aggressively seek full compensation and medical care for our clients.
