Workers' Compensation Myths And Misconceptions

Workers can get less than they are owed from Connecticut's workers' comp simply because they don't know their rights or the proper procedures. Don't let an early mistake deprive you of your right to make a work injury claim.

Your employer has a lawyer whose job is to minimize the company's cost. You should have a workers' comp lawyer, too. You need to know that:

  • Your employer will not file your claim on your behalf.
  • You cannot be forced to settle your workers' comp claim.

At the West Hartford Law Office of James F. Aspell, P.C., we have been protecting the rights of workers who have suffered on-the-job injuries for 25 years.

Don't let myths and misconceptions prevent you from obtaining the compensation and benefits you are owed.

Our attorney, James F. Aspell, is a Board Certified Specialist in Workers' Compensation through the Connecticut Bar Association. We have represented thousands of working people injured in construction, health care, trucking, factory, and other work settings. We also represent police, firefighters, and state employees who may be entitled to additional benefits.
