Our approach is to create peace of mind as we plan together.

Worker's Compensation

If you are injured during the course of your employment, or if you have an existing injury which is aggravated by your work, Connecticut’s Worker's Compensation Law entitles you to receive payment for medical and other related expenses, lost wages, permanent injuries that you sustain and for other specified covered losses. You may also be entitled to benefits if you contract a disease or suffer an occupational injury that is caused by, or aggravated by the work that you perform. Dependent spouses who survive an employee who has died in a work-related accident may also be entitled to benefits. There may be other insurance benefits available to you if you have been injured while working.

 

However, there are notice, statutory, and other legal requirements that must be met before one is entitled to the protection of Connecticut’s worker's compensation statutes. Failing to comply with these requirements can jeopardize an employee’s right to seek workers' compensation benefits for a work-related injury. You need an attorney that can help you meet the legal requirements necessary for you to receive benefits.
