Norwich Workers Compensation Attorneys
Enacted in 1913, the Connecticut Workers Compensation Act was intended to provide people who are injured on the job with certain rights, benefits, and financial compensation. Much to our dismay however, these rights have been slowly and steadily whittled away over the last several decades.
At Anderson Trial Lawyers, we have been working inside and outside of the courtroom since 1967 in an effort to stop the erosion of workers’ compensation benefits and strengthen the rights of injured workers. Attorney Carl D. Anderson, past President of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association, has a well-deserved reputation as a champion of workers’ rights in the state of Connecticut. In his capacity as President of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association, he took this fight directly to the state capital in an effort to bring back the intent of the original Connecticut Workers’ Compensation Act.

Workers Compensation Benefits
Benefits you may be entitled to when you have been injured in a work accident include:
- Compensation for lost wages
- Compensation for medical expenses
- Compensation for permanent partial disability or total disability
- Compensation for the loss of earning capacity
- Compensation for mileage to and from medical treatment
- Vocational rehabilitation and job retraining
- Death benefits for family members
Our attorneys will thoroughly prepare your workers’ comp claim and provide passionate advocacy for you in every facet of this process, including appeals. We can also help you determine eligibility for and assist with the transition into Social Security Disability benefits.
If you were injured on the job because of defective machinery or equipment or due to the negligence of a person or entity that was not your employer, you may have a valid personal injury claim or product liability claim in addition to workers compensation benefits.
