Helping Connecticut residents recover workers' comp benefits


Employees in Connecticut can be faced with workplace health and safety issues at times. These conditions could lead to a serious workplace accident. While no one expects to be injured on the job, workers are often faced with many issues following such a serious and traumatic experience.

At our law firm, we understand the challenges a workplace injury can place on a worker. We are aware of the rights and options afforded to injured workers, and we are dedicated to helping workers and their loved ones in the Fairfield area.

At our law firm, we have helped past clients recover financial resources and benefits to the fullest extent possible. Many workers are not fully aware how far their rights extend following a workplace injury. However, an injured worker has the right to seek workers' compensation benefits following a workplace accident. It should be noted that employees only have a limited amount of time to file an action, so time is of the essence in these matters.

Workers' compensation benefits can be extremely beneficial and could help an injured worker address financial hardships following a work injury. Workers' comp typically covers a certain percentage of the worker's lost wages, current medical bills, continued medical care and temporary or permanent disability. Additionally, in the event that a worker was killed in a fatal work accident, death benefits are available for dependent family members.

To learn more, please visit our law firm's workers' compensation website. It can be a shocking event to be involved in a workplace accident, but workers need to understand their rights and what benefits they are eligible for.
