Millions Recovered For Injured People

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.

Although anyone who has been injured on the job may qualify for workers' compensation, not every claim is granted. There may be a number of reasons why a claim is denied, especially if the injury is found to have occurred outside a worker's scope of employment. Just as workers' compensation benefits providers may aggressively seek to deny benefits, injured Connecticut workers need to be diligent and convincing in their arguments to support their claim.

At the Law Offices of James L ORourke, our skilled legal team has more than 50 years of combined legal experience. We utilize that experience together with our knowledge of the law and the workers' compensation system to help our clients strengthen their claims. We discuss their cases' strengths and weaknesses and identify what can be done to erase or minimize any problematic issues.

Looking at the big picture, our attorneys want to maximize their clients' financial recoveries so that they can get back on their feet and reclaim their pre-accident lives. The process may be lengthy and contentious, but we stand tough for our clients, giving them the voice that they deserve and need to stand a chance at reaching a favorable outcome.
