Workers Compensation

Injured on the job? Get legal help now.

What is workers compensation?
Every state mandates workers compensation coverage for its workers in case of work-related injuries or deaths. If you have been injured on the job, you may be eligible to claim some of these benefits. However, it is helpful to have experienced legal counsel to assist you in these matters. Workers compensation laws can be quite complex, and the process you must go through in order to obtain benefits can be daunting. Insurance companies and employers often make it very difficult for you to get the benefits you are entitled to.

If you have been injured on the job, you should immediately:

  • Report your injury to your employer
  • See a medical professional
  • Notify your employer of any accident, even if it seems minor
  • Contact a seasoned workers compensation attorney

Injured workers’ benefits
The benefits associated with a workers compensation claim typically include recovery of medical expenses and lost wages resulting from a temporary or permanent disability.

The employee receives benefits, either monetary or medical, as a result of a temporary or permanent work-related injury or disability.

Denied claims
You may be entitled to benefits, but that does not mean it will be easy to get them. Often employers and insurance companies will make it very difficult for an employee to get a claim approved. This is why having an attorney who strongly advocates your side and understands Connecticut state laws about workers compensation can make a tremendous difference.

Common obstacles involved in Connecticut workers compensation cases include:

  • Employer denies workers compensation claims
  • Employer refuses to pay benefits
  • Employer cheats employees out of a portion or all of their benefits
  • Difficulty understanding complex Connecticut workers compensation laws

A seasoned workers compensation attorney can help you avoid these common pitfalls and help you navigate these complicated laws.
