CT Workers Comp Lawyer
aggressive connecticut Workers Comp Lawyer
In Connecticut, Workers Compensation provides financial and medical benefits for employees who’ve been injured or sick, arising out of the course of their employment. Most employees, whether full or part-time, are covered. That’s why it’s important to have an aggressive workers comp lawyer on your side.
Workers Comp is provided by your employer’s insurance policy. Therefore, if you’ve been injured on the job, workers comp may be your only option. So it is important that you get it done the right way.
Do I have a workers comp case if I was at fault for my injuries?
Your workers compensation benefits do not have anything to do with fault. It generally doesn’t matter if your actions caused the injury.
Additionally, you do not have to prove that a co-worker or employer was negligent in causing your injuries. Under most circumstances, if you were injured on the job, regardless of fault, you are entitled to comp benefits.
Do You Have a Personal Injury Claim Also?
Sometimes workers compensation benefits aren’t enough to cover your losses. In some situations, you might also be able to bring a personal injury claim.
At L.A. LAW, your case will be carefully evaluated to maximize your recovery. If your case qualifies to file a personal injury claim, we will hold the negligent third party responsible.
What Should I do If I have been injured at work?
Report Your Workplace Injury to Your Employer
As soon as possible, you need to report your injury to your employer. Next, your employer should provide you with medical treatment and begin filing certain forms with the Workers’ Compensation Commission.
Seek Medical Attention
If you haven’t done so already at this point, you should seek medical attention.
Oftentimes, your employer or its insurance company, have already established a medical care plan. This means that your job might send you to a company medical facility or a designated physician for your initial treatment. If your employer has a designated medical provider you have to use them for your initial treatment.
