Protecting Your Rights After An Injury At Work

Whether you work on an active construction site, in a warehouse, delivering packages, in a hospital, in an office or elsewhere, there is always the possibility of becoming injured on the job. If you are injured in the course of completing a work-related task, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits provide medical compensation for you as well as compensation for your lost wages.

To understand your rights to workers’ comp, turn to our legal team at Jacobs & Wallace, PLLC. Representing injured workers in Bridgeport, Stamford and throughout Connecticut, we are dedicated to helping you move forward after a work accident. While you must report your injury to your employer immediately after the accident occurs and seek medical attention, it is also important to talk to an attorney who will be on your side throughout your pursuit of workers’ compensation benefits. If you are injured while working for Amazon or injured working in health care, please see our pages dedicated to those matters.

Why You Need A Lawyer

While it may seem like they are on your side, your employer is not actually looking out for you after your work injury. They are protecting their bottom line and letting their workers’ comp insurance company handle the details with you.

Our team of attorneys is looking out for you and putting your best interests first at all times. We do not back down from any opposing counsel, tirelessly seeking compensation for you. We will thoroughly investigate the situation, help you understand what to expect from the workers’ compensation process and even file an appeal in the event your initial claim was denied.
