An injury at work can happen suddenly, such as lifting a heavy object, a blow to the head, a fall from a ladder, or a construction site accident. Usually there is little question that these types of injuries should be covered by workers' compensation. However, workers' comp insurance companies frequently deny valid work injuries and occupational disease claims by trying to blame an injury and/or disability on non-work related activities or a pre-existing health condition. The workers comp. attorneys at The Law Offices of James F. Aspell, P.C. and our Board Certified Specialist in Connecticut Workers' Compensation Law know how to investigate your claim, negotiate with the workers' comp insurance company, and present a strong case at a workers' compensation hearing, if needed. We are committed to protecting your rights as a hard-working employee who was injured on the job. We can also provide valuable advice on how potential Social Security Disability benefits, Medicare benefits, and/or disability insurance benefits interact with your workers' compensation case. Comprehensive Representation Throughout the Work Comp Claim Process The workers' compensation claims process is complicated. Jim Aspell will provide personal services to our clients throughout the course of their claims. Our attorneys stand up for your rights by filing your claim (a Form 30C), guiding you through your medical treatment, working toward a possible lump sum settlement, fighting a denial of benefits or medical treatment if necessary, and presenting your case at workers' comp hearings and appeals. Our goal is to make sure you receive all of your workers' compensation benefits in as timely a manner as possible. Do not sign anything about your Worker's Compensation claim unless you speak with an attorney.
