Every day, thousands of Connecticut residents go to work and put their well-being and their very lives on the line, whether they know it or not. Workplace accidents can strike at any time, and they can leave individuals with serious injuries that take time, money and pain to recover from. In other instances, like the one discussed last week, injuries suffered on the job can be fatal. In these instances, surviving family members can be left with unimaginable emotional loss and financial devastation.
Fortunately, those affected by workplace accidents may be able to turn to the workers’ compensation system for relief. If secured, the benefits provided by this system can help alleviate lost wages and medical expenses. But recouping these losses is not always easy, as many workers’ compensation claims are denied for a variety of reasons.
This is why we at the Law Offices of James L O’Rourke strive to help those who have been injured on the job put forth solid claims for workers’ compensation. Our legal team knows the ins and outs of the process, and how to avoid common claim pitfalls. We can assist with gathering the appropriate documentation and putting forth strong legal arguments to support one’s claim.
Even if an initial claim is denied, our legal professionals can help challenge that decision. This requires a close analysis of the situation at hand and precise utilization of the law to bolster legal arguments. At our firm, we work diligently and aggressively to recover the compensation our clients deserve, ensuring that they are there every step of the way to make legal decisions that are right for them.
