Bridgeport Workers' Compensation Attorney
Were you injured at work?
Millions of Americans are injured every year that work in both hazardous occupations and even seemingly safe occupations. Thankfully, Connecticut State workers' compensation laws are designed to protect the injured worker in the event they are injured in a work accident. At Schafer & Schafer, LLP we are honored to represent injured workers in their workers' compensation claims. In a perfect world these claims would go smoothly and workers would get the benefits they need; however, in reality sometimes there is a big difference between what the worker deserves and what he or she receives. This is where we come in. As your Bridgeport workers' compensation lawyer, we are here to protect your best interests and pursue maximum workers' compensation benefits on your behalf.
We handle all types of workers' compensation cases stemming from simple to complex scenarios. We frequently represent workers that have been injured in the following: car accidents,
labor accidents and
landscaping accidents. Such accidents can cause all sorts of serious conditions for the injured victim ranging from
repetitive trauma, to
heart problems and hypertension,
occupations diseases, back injuries, neck injuries, amputation injuries and many more. We can also help clients in
independent contractor claims, including those where an employer is incorrectly designating an injured worker as an independent contractor for the purpose of denying benefits.
