Workers' Compensation

People who are injured at work face the complexities of the workers’ compensation law and when they are confused and frustrated, we help them by providing sound advice and guidance, as well as advocating tenaciously for their workers’ compensation benefits.

If you have been injured at work or have become ill from your job, the only claim you can bring against your employer, with limited exception, is a workers' compensation claim. The Connecticut Workers' Compensation System covers almost all employees, including minors, non-citizens, and part-time employees, regardless of occupation, business size, duration of employment, or number of hours worked per day.

Workers’ compensation is a “no-fault” system of insurance. This means that even if the your work related injury was your fault, your employer must provide all necessary medical treatment; weekly benefits while you are disabled; vocational rehabilitation, if necessary; and additional benefits for scarring, disfigurement, and permanent physical impairment. Although you are entitled to all of these benefits, your employer may still dispute your legitimate workers’ compensation claim and decline to pay the benefits you are entitled. That’s when our experience, knowledge, and persistence comes handy! Don’t go it alone, have us by your side, fighting for your rights and ensuring the best outcome for you.
