If you are injured on the job in Connecticut while in the course and scope of your employment you may be entitled to be compensated by the employer for medical treatment and time out of work. Additionally, if the work related injury has left you with any permanent disability, the law allows for compensation for that as well. If you believe you have sustained a work related injury, notify your employer immediately and inform them of the nature of the injury. Under the law, the employer cannot terminate your employment solely because you reported this injury.
I represent claimants at the informal, preformal and formal hearing levels. I also take appeals to the Compensation Review Board.
There is a window of time in which to file your initial claim so please call to set up a consultation.
