Workers’ Compensation

injured workman

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 can help you secure the benefits you deserve.

Our expert trial attorneys at Anderson Trial Lawyers will thoroughly prepare your workers’ compensation claim and provide passionate advocacy for you in every facet of this process, including appeals.

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 job.

If you have been injured at work or have become sick due to your workplace environment, you may be entitled to compensation for the following losses or expenses:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical expenses
  • Permanent, partial, or total disability
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Mileage to and from medical treatments
  • 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.

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 been slowly and steadily whittled away over the last several decades. 

Attorney Carl D. Anderson 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.

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.
