Working Hard for the Hardworking People of Connecticut

Connecticut Workers’ Compensation Lawyers for Emergency Workers

Emergency Worker Injuries

Serving Connecticut’s Police, Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT), Corrections Officers, and Firefighters 

First responders like police, firefighters, and EMTs are going to see the worst and most difficult situations our society can serve up. At CT Injury Lawyers, we have helped first responders pick up their lives and recover lost wages when they are hurt on the job and unable to work.

Serving First Responders in Their Time of Need

First responders are going to deal with injuries and traumas few others will ever face. Unfortunately, Connecticut law has not always been able to help police, firefighters, or other first responders when an unusual but tragic injury happens on the job. For example, the Connecticut legislature has been slow to include Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD) and psychological trauma in the list of workers’ compensation claims covered.

In fact, several police officers in Connecticut have been denied claims due to PTSD even though they were disabled while responding to some of the most violent and tragic events in Connecticut history. You need an experienced workers’ compensation attorney who knows how to help police, firefighters, EMTs, and other first responders no matter how difficult the injury.

You Served Us, Now Let Us Serve You

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics most recent Injuries, Illnesses, and Fatalities report, police, firefighter, and other public service jobs rank among the most dangerous. However, as local governments try to cut costs and close budget shortfalls, workers’ compensation is one of the frequent targets for cuts. Our experienced attorneys know how to fight for your rights and get you payment for your injuries despite these cuts.

Firefighters, police, EMTs, and other first responders face risks every day, resulting in neck injuries, repetitive stress injuries, or illness. In extreme cases, injuries can result in knees and other joint injuries, broken bones, spinal cord injuries and brain injuries. Our certified workers’ compensation lawyers are here to help you or loved ones with a workers’ compensation claim or lawsuit.

Do You Have a Personal Injury Claim?

At CT Injury Lawyers, we know that first responders are exposed to significant workplace demands. Our workers' compensation lawyers know that workers’ compensation insurance is not always sufficient to cover the necessary costs from workplace injuries. Your lawyer will file all appropriate claims to and, when necessary, a civil lawsuit against potential third parties for personal injury damages. Whenever necessary, our lawyers will evaluate the specific facts in your accident to determine if a third party was negligent.

We will help you recover your lost earnings, medical bills, future medical expenses and impairment. We will help you to be compensated for pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life if the injury is a result of the actions of a third party. Our experienced lawyers will seek maximum compensation from at-fault third parties in variety of accidents.
