Experienced Workers’ Comp Lawyers in Eastern Connecticut
When injured on the job, Connecticut workers are legally entitled to certain rights, benefits, and financial compensation. Over time, however, these rights have been slowly and steadily eroded, presenting certain challenges to employees seeking workers’ compensation benefits. While you may have the legal right to fair compensation for your workplace injury, seeking legal advice from a trusted attorney may help you secure the benefits you deserve.
Our expert workers’ compensation attorneys at Anderson Trial Lawyers 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.
Workers Compensation Benefits
Connecticut’s Workers’ Compensation Act provides medical treatment, wage replacement benefits, and other benefits for employees who have been injured at work or who have suffered an illness due to their jobs.
If you have been injured at work or have become sick due to your workplace environment, you may be entitled to the following benefits:
- 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
In addition to your rights under Connecticut’s Workers Compensation Act, 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.
Fighting to Restore Workers’ Rights
At Anderson Trial Lawyers, we have more than five decades of experience in working inside and outside of the courtroom in an effort to stop the erosion of workers’ compensation benefits and strengthen the rights of injured workers.
While the Connecticut Workers Compensation Act — enacted in 1913 — intended to provide people with workplace injuries with certain rights, benefits, and financial compensation, the securities that legislation offered have become slowly and steadily whittled away over the last several decades. 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, he took this fight directly to the state capital in an effort to bring back the intent of the original Connecticut Workers’ Compensation Act.
