Workers’ Compensation Attorneys in Southbury

Committed to Representing Injured Workers

Were you injured on the job? We can help.

People spend a significant amount of their lives at work, and as a result it should be no surprise that people can - and do - suffer injuries while on the job. These injuries can occur in any occupation, whether on construction sites, in an office environment, in a hospital or long-term care facility, working as a first responder, or any other type of job. Further, these injuries can arise from a specific injury, repetitive stress/repetitive trauma, or from an occupational disease. Significantly, however, subject to limited exceptions, an employee in Connecticut is barred from bringing a lawsuit against an employer for work-related injuries. Instead, injured employees need to file a workers’ compensation claim.

The purpose of the workers’ compensation system is for employees to be provided with medical treatment, as well as a portion of lost wages, when they sustain a work-related injury. Workers’ compensation claims, however, can be confusing to those unfamiliar with the law or how the system works. Further, insurance companies will often deny claims, delay benefits, or seek to limit the benefits paid on behalf of the injured worker. Therefore, to avoid possible complications and/or obstacles that may arise as you file for these essential benefits, you should consider hiring an attorney. At LaRese Law our workers’ compensation team is committed to ensuring you receive the maximum benefits to which you are entitled.

We understand this is a stressful situation and can help you through this difficult time. Attorney’s fees for workers’ compensation claims are generally paid on a contingent fee basis, i.e., based on a percentage of the benefits you receive. As a result, there is little benefit in delaying obtaining an attorney to fight for your rights. Further, there are strict time limitations for when a claim must be filed, after which you will be barred from pursuing the claim.
