Experienced Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

Workers' compensation is a separate area of the law created for the purpose of protecting people injured at work. It has specific regulations and is administered by the Workers' Compensation Commission and not a court. It has its own hearing facilities and rules.

If you are injured at work, we will file a legally correct 30C Notice of Claim and deal with your employer's insurance carrier on your behalf. If there are conflicts, we request and attend hearings on your behalf to secure the benefits you are entitled to receive.

A person is entitled to be self-represented in a workers' compensation matter and information for self-representation can be obtained at the appropriate compensation district office or at the Workers' Compensation Commission website, wcc.state.ct.us. Some people are successful handling matters themselves, especially smaller injuries. However, if you have a substantial injury, especially one involving surgery or substantial physical therapy and time out of work, you should consult a lawyer experienced in workers' compensation to make sure you get all the benefits you are entitled.
