Our Hartford-area workers’ compensation lawyers help injured employees get through the sometimes-difficult workers’ compensation process. We investigate the workplace accident, document the nature and extent of the work injury, and present persuasive claims to the Connecticut Workers’ Compensation Commission.
Are You An Office Or Factory Worker Suffering From A Back Injury? Have You Been Injured In A Construction Site Accident? Are You A Police Officer, Corrections Officer Or Fireman Injured At Work?
We seek compensation for your lost wages, medical bills and any disability resulting from permanent injuries. Our accident injury team evaluates the future effects of your injuries. We also take on claims involving the aggravation of preexisting conditions. Over the years, we have successfully handled thousands of workers’ compensation claims. We would be happy to help you with your workers’ compensation claim too.
Berman & Russo represents workers in all trades and professions. We advise clients that have sustained an injury on a wide variety of job sites, including factories, construction sites, schools, office buildings, machine shops, hospitals and nursing homes.
Our experienced workers’ compensation lawyers handle injury claims involving improper ergonomics, hazardous work environments, fall down injuries, repetitive stress, and injuries from frequent lifting, bending, stooping, etc. We have handled thousands of workers’ compensation claims, either from the outset of the filing or handling a denied claim, involving:
- Repetitive trauma injuries, including back injuries
- Occupational illnesses, including chronic asthma and allergies
- Back and neck injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Injuries from falls
- Accidents that worsen preexisting or degenerative injuries
- Heart attacks
- Mold exposure
- Work-related vehicle accidents
You do not pay us any attorney fees unless we obtain compensation for you.
In some cases, in addition to a workers’ compensation claim, you can seek compensation for your injuries and for your pain and suffering against a third party who caused your injury, so long as it is not your employer or a fellow employee. Your damages in such a third party lawsuit are not restricted by the compensation limitations of our workers compensation statutes. An example of a third-party claim would be a claim against a driver who negligently hit you while you were driving in the course of your work duties. In such a case, you could have a claim for workers’ compensation benefits against your employer as well as a claim against the negligent driver in the car accident.
If You’re Collecting Workers’ Compensation, Be Careful About Unreported Income
Part-time wages or self-employment income might need to be reported to your workers’ compensation insurance carrier. If you’ve been collecting such outside income, you should discuss the situation with an experienced attorney first. Under certain circumstances, workers’ compensation fraud can be punished as a felony in Connecticut. If you have any questions or doubts about your right to work in any capacity while collecting workers’ comp benefits, call a lawyer at Berman & Russo to learn about your legal rights and obligations.
