Helping Victims of On-the-Job Accidents
Getting hurt or sick on the job is an unfortunate fact of life. The Bureau of Labor Statistics tracks well over a million cases annually where American workers are forced off the job from a work-related accident or illness. Even worse, 4,405 workers were killed on the job in 2013 ― more than 12 deaths every day! Injured workers and their families deserve fair compensation and support to recover from devastating injuries.
If you are injured in an accident at work you are probably entitled to workers’ compensation. At CT Injury Lawyers, our lawyers bring years of workers' compensation experience to aggressively protect workers injured on the job.
Protecting Victims of Accidents in All Types of Cases
Our workers’ compensation lawyers serve all types of employees, including public safety officials like firefighters, police, EMTs, corrections officers, nurses and other health care workers hurt on the job. We help construction workers, factory and warehouse workers, truck drivers, and HVAC workers that need an attorney who is an experienced, certified workers’ compensation specialist. And of course, auto mechanics, office workers and school employees also need lawyers for workers’ compensation claims.
CT Injury Lawyers are ready to serve if you’ve been injured in a work accident. Our lawyers will fight to ensure that when you are injured on the job, you are compensated for:
- Hospital and rehabilitation bills
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Career training
Do You Also Have a Personal Injury Claim?
Our workers' compensation lawyers know that workers’ compensation insurance is not always sufficient to cover the necessary recovery from workplace injuries. We will file all appropriate claims too and, when necessary, a civil lawsuit against a third party for personal injury damages. Whenever necessary, our lawyers will evaluate the specific facts in your accident to determine if a third party was negligent.
Getting You the Workers’ Compensation Benefits You Deserve
Workers’ compensation benefits have nothing to do with fault. You do not need to prove that your employer or your co-workers did anything wrong in order for you to receive workers’ compensation benefits. Even if you were negligent, and your negligence caused your workplace injury, you are still entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits.
In a personal injury claim or lawsuit, you are entitled to recover all of the damages that you have suffered. This includes lost earnings, lost earning capacity, medical bills, future medical expenses, permanent impairment, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life. Our experienced workers’ compensation lawyers will seek the maximum settlement from at-fault third parties in variety of accidents, such as:
- Job injuries resulting from falls from scaffolding, ladders, or roofs
- Injuries caused by the negligence of another employer's worker
- Construction accidents involving dangerous or defective equipment or tools
- Work-related car accidents or a slip-and-fall injuries that happened away from work, but while you were performing job duties
