Catastrophic Injuries In The Workplace

Experienced attorneys representing Eastern Connecticut residents who have suffered serious injuries in the workplace

A tough road lies ahead when you or a loved one has been seriously injured in the workplace. Getting an attorney with experience in workplace accidents can help get you the compensation you deserve to minimize the financial burden on you and your family.

At Anderson Trial Lawyers, our goal is to show compassion and do what we can to help you. We can assist with everything from getting authorization for medical treatments and prescriptions to guiding you through the process of filing a workers’ compensation claim.

How Workplace Accidents Can Occur

Workplace accidents resulting in catastrophic injuries can be caused by:

  • Defective machinery and equipment
  • Structural problems
  • Failure to abide by safety and OSHA regulations
  • Negligent subcontractors
  • Other unsafe work practices

When A Personal Injury Claim Is Possible

Your employer is liable for workers’ compensation benefits, sometimes referred to as “workman’s compensation”. The workers’ comp system is difficult to navigate, and we will walk you through the process from start to finish.

Workers’ compensation is often not sufficient to offset your medical bills, lost wages, and other financial costs arising from a workplace accident. If you can prove that the negligence of your employer or a third party contributed to the accident that injured you, it is possible to file a personal injury claim.

I could not have asked for an easier, stress free way to handle my legal business. I dealt with Mike mostly and it was a pleasure, but the staff was great too! Definitely a positive experience and a PROFESSIONAL I'm glad to have in my circle.

For thirty years, we have never faced a vendor-related contract failure... but it finally happened.We turned to the compassionate team at Anderson and Anderson, for our goal was a resolution that met the needs of clients and agency but didn't turn into something nasty or not reflective of our corporate culture.Chris and his team at Anderson and Anderson were professional, calm and supportive. Through a strong and guiding presence, they helped us successfully negotiate a settlement with a vendor that failed to deliver as promised.While it was a challenge to experience this process, Chris translated the legal-ease and clearly protected our best interests and that of our client. We could not have been more pleased or grateful for his guidance and support.I can clearly envision how he would protect those injured and in need of a skilled advocate. We had to go to court, and other clients may have to do so, as well. Ultimately it really matters who you choose to be your representative: someone who says "they will fight for you," or someone who has a proven record of walking into a courtroom to fight on your behalf.
