We have discussed elsewhere on this website how our lawyers assist injured persons in different matters such as automobile accidents, medical or legal malpractice, slip and falls, dog bites, etc.
However, persons injured on the job in Connecticut must follow different procedures to obtain compensation for their injuries and losses.
Our lawyers are experienced in representing clients before the Workers’ Compensation Commission. The Commission has specific procedures which must be followed – if those procedures are not followed then injured persons could be denied benefits. We assist our clients in filing all of the necessary forms on time so that they will receive all of their benefits including lost wages, medical payments, payments for partial disability, payments for temporary total disability, payments for permanent total disability and finally payments for scarring or disfigurement.
In addition our lawyers will discuss with you related issues that may be significant, for example claims against negligent third parties or claims against fellow employees.
Please call us if you have suffered any injury on the job and would like to discuss your legal rights with our lawyers. There is no charge for the initial consultation.
