Millions Recovered For Injured People

Helping you recover workers' comp following a work accident

Although accidents do happen, most workers in Connecticut and elsewhere do not expect to suffer tremendously because of a workplace accident. However, employees across the nation are victims of workplace injuries each and every day. While some of these injuries are minor and require little to no medical attention, others are severe and even debilitating. Thus, when an accident occurs in the work environment, injured workers not only need to understand the seriousness of their situation but also their rights and options when it comes to recovering compensation.

A workplace accident could result in an employee missing an extensive number of workdays. This is often due to the medical treatment he or she is required to obtain and the pain and suffering he or she is currently battling with. At the Law Office of James L. O'Rouke, our experienced legal team understands how challenging it can be to deal with the aftermath of a workplace accident. Thus, we are dedicated to helping injured workers in the Stratford area understand their rights and navigate their legal options.

Whether you are set on seeking workers' compensation benefits or are unsure or unclear about what rights and options you have, our law firm is available to help injured access their situation and determine their best course of action. For those seeking workers' compensation benefits, it is important to understand what this action could help you recover. This typically includes a percentage of lost wages, medical bills and future medical costs, temporary or permanent disability and in the event of a fatal accident, death benefits to surviving family members.

With over two decades of experience, our law firm has successfully helped past clients recover worker comp benefits in a wide variety of incidents. These include eligible accidents such as on-the-job car crashes, injuries occurring during travel for work, being bitten by a dog during the course of work, injuries caused by machinery in a factory that is maintained by a third party and accidents resulting from negligent actions of a subcontractor.
