Do You Have A Connecticut Workers’ Compensation Case?
Workplace accidents can take a serious toll, both medically and financially. Serious injuries may require extended periods of time away from work, compromising your livelihood and your ability to make ends meet. The most severe injuries may prevent you from ever returning to your job. Medical bills and lost wages can quickly add up and create financial instability in even the most fiscally sound households.
With so much on the line after a work-related injury, it is critical that you take steps to protect your interests and put yourself in the best position to move forward. Workers’ compensation benefits are designed to help injured workers and their families cope with the challenges they face after an on-the-job accident. At Lynch, Traub, Keefe & Errante, P.C., we have helped hundreds of workers secure these benefits and focus on their recovery.
Fighting For Injured Workers Throughout Connecticut
Unfortunately, the workers’ compensation system does not always work with an injured worker’s best interests in mind. Your employer’s workers’ comp insurer is likely more interested in maximizing its profits than in making sure you receive the best deal.
To ensure that you receive all of the benefits and compensation you are entitled to under the workers’ compensation system, you should secure skilled workers’ compensation representation.
We offer our clients the high-quality representation they need when they have been injured in:
- Construction accidents
- Industrial accidents
- Manufacturing accidents
- Warehouse accidents
Types Of Payment And Types Of Disability
If you do not make a full recovery, you may qualify for a lump-sum payment or weekly payments to account for your disability. It is common for injured workers, doctors and insurers to disagree about the determined percentage of disability. If a doctor says you are left with a 5 percent disability rather than a more appropriate designation of 15 percent, the difference can translate to hundreds or thousands of dollars in benefits.
A workers’ compensation attorney on your side can advise you on how to protect your right to fair treatment as these determinations are underway.
Were You Injured By A Third Party?
When an on-the-job injury is caused by someone other than you, your employer or another employee — such as a contractor or subcontractor — you can pursue compensation from that third party in addition to workers’ compensation benefits. Third-party claims are pursued in the same fashion as other types of personal injury. Our depth of understanding regarding personal injury and workers’ compensation allows us to provide our clients skilled representation in third-party cases.
