Millions Recovered For Injured People

December 2016 Archives

Five decades of experience dealing with workers' compensation


In the blink of an eye, a routine day at work can turn into a nightmare. Workers can suffer serious injuries in workplace accidents, which can be caused a number of ways. Construction workers can be hit by cars or fall from scaffolding; those working near machinery can become pinned and even retail workers can suffer debilitating back injuries. Under these circumstances, hurt workers may need time off to recover their health before returning to work. When this is the case, these individuals may need to seek out workers' compensation benefits.

Connecticut workplace accident leaves one dead


This time of year, package handlers and mail carriers are putting in a lot of hours. In the hustle and bustle to meet deadlines and keep holiday packages moving, workers may find themselves in dangerous work environments. Sadly, not all workers are able to escape these hazardous conditions without injury, and some even die on the job.

Proving negligence in a wrongful death lawsuit


Those who have lost a loved one in a fatal car accident or as the result of medical malpractice can find themselves overwhelmed by their emotions and their financial losses. While they try to cope with the tragedy, the financial damage can take hold, throwing them into another realm of stress and depression. Although nothing can bring a lost loved one back, filing a wrongful death lawsuit may lead to the recovery of compensation, which could allow a surviving family to focus on moving forward in life with some degree of financial stability.

What benefits can I receive through workers' compensation?


If you've been injured on the job, then you probably have a lot of immediate needs. You may need medical care, rehabilitation and a way to make ends meet while you spend some time away from work to focus on your recovery. Those who have been hurt in a workplace accident may be able to recover compensation to help cover their losses if they successfully file a workers' compensation claim.

Connecticut drunk driving statistics are concerning


Now that we are amidst the holiday season, many Connecticut residents will find themselves attending many social occasions where alcohol flows freely. While many individuals are able to responsibly enjoy alcohol, others are either incapable of doing or erroneously think that they are being safe when they are not. When this happens, innocent motorists can be put in harm's way, and a drunk driving accident can leave them with serious injuries. In some instances, these wrecks are fatal.
