We have a page on our website, reproduced below, which explains what we can do for you in you are injured at work in Connecticut. Unfortunately, despite the efforts of lawyers and the Connecticut Worker's Compensation Commission to explain to injured Connecticut workers what our worker's comp law covers, misconceptions remain. I am often heard spouting my favorite phrase: "Worker's comp is a statutory benefit." A worker's comp case is not a car accident case. You cannot recover for pain and suffering even though you may have terrible pain from your work injury and be suffering greatly. You cannot recover because you cant pay your bills. You cannot recover for your family member having to cook for you or clean for you. You can only get what the Connecticut Worker's Compensation Act, Title 31 of our statutes, says you can get. That is where we come in. I promise to you that I will fight with every fiber of my being to get you all the benefits that statute says you are entitled to. Your life depends on it. My livelihood depends on it. If you have been hurt on the job in Hartford or somewhere else in Connecticut, give me a call. Come in and talk to me. It is free and no obligation. If I can help you, I will. If I cant I will politely tell you so. In the meantime, please read the provided material below.
