Our Services Workers Compensation

Doing our part to make the workplace safer

Workers Compensation

Workers’ Compensation benefits are designed to bridge the gap between a work injury and the return to work through wage replacement, payment of medical bills, and compensation for loss of function and disability.

We know what a difficult and frightening experience it is for our clients who have experienced a workplace injury and are thrust into the workers’ compensation process to pay medical bills and support your family. We can help as soon as an injury has occurred, in wrongful death actions, or become involved once a claim has been denied.

We are ready, willing and able to take on the most complicated workers’ compensation case to fight for compensation until the end. Because of the depth of our expertise, we can also assist in the instance that a personal injury lawsuit is also applicable to your situation.

The Workers’ Compensation Act in Connecticut was first enacted in 1913. Although there have been many changes over the years, the goal of the act remains to provide wage replacement and benefits, as well as medical treatment, for employees who have been injured, disabled or killed while performing their jobs.

Disputes often arise over the connection between an injury and work, when and how much benefits are owed, or if medical treatment options are reasonable or necessary. 

For those who will never reclaim their past ability to work, workers’ compensation offers ongoing assistance to injured workers and their families.
