It’s an unfortunate reality for many Connecticut businesses — despite all of the safety measures that employers and employees take, every year tens of thousands of Connecticut employees are hurt on the job.
The cost of Connecticut workplace injuries to the Connecticut economy is staggering, with millions of hours in manpower and productivity lost each year. Equally staggering are the thousands of dollars in medical payments and wage benefits that injured workers are entitled to — but fail to collect.
Connecticut employees may not understand how to collect the benefits they need, or they may be misinformed by their employers about their right to file a claim. In other cases, workers do not realize their injury or sickness was caused by their job, or they may believe that their injury is not serious enough to merit benefits.

Nearly all employees in Connecticut are covered by workers’ compensation insurance. Under the workers’ compensation system, employers agree to pay medical expenses and lost wages for an employee’s job-related injury or illness — even if the employee is at fault for his or her injuries.
While workers’ compensation insurance may be provided by most employers, employees often encounter significant delays and administrative hurdles as they attempt to collect benefits. Insurance companies can add to workers’ frustration by delaying, denying or contesting a valid injury claim. The workers’ compensation system can be so frustrating that many employees decide not to pursue their claims. But there is a better way to deal with those frustrations.
We are dedicated to helping injured workers get the compensation and medical benefits to which they are entitled so that they can continue to support themselves and their families. We do not get paid unless we successfully obtain recovery on your behalf. Contact our firm for help with your case.
