Norwalk Workers' Compensation Attorney
On The Job Injuries in Norwalk
Workplace accidents have always been a cause for concern for workers. Fortunately in modern times workers' compensation laws nationwide have been created to protect the worker in the event he or she is involved in a workplace accident. Although workers have certain inalienable rights in the event they are injured, it doesn't mean they won't encounter any difficulty receiving the workers' compensation benefits they are entitled to under Connecticut law.
There are cases where an employer will dispute a workers' claim, and in other cases the insurer may deny the claim altogether. Since these cases are extremely time sensitive (you need your money and you need it now), it's critical to enlist the services of an experienced Norwalk workers' compensation attorney from Schafer & Schafer, LLP as early as possible in the claims process. Due to our firm's 2014 acquisition of a Norwalk workers' compensation practice, we are even better equipped than before to assist clients in your area.
Workers' Compensation Areas of Practice
Our firm is comprised of a small team of attorneys (including a board-certified workers' compensation specialist) who provide big firm results. Unlike large law firms where your case is passed on from person to person, at our firm the same attorney will work on your case from start to finish. Our clients suffer from all types of personal injuries that are caused from various different work accidents. The one thing all our clients have in common is the need for maximum workers' compensation benefits and ample time to recover from their injuries, if a full recovery is even possible.
We represent clients who have been injured in car accidents,
lifting accidents and
slip and fall accidents. We also represent clients who have suffered from
occupational diseases such as
heart and hypertension, black lung disease, and other injuries caused by repetitive trauma. In addition to
workers' compensation, we are proud to offer legal services in
other areas as well such as personal injury,
juvenile law and criminal defense.
At Schafer & Schafer, LLP, we strongly uphold the rights of injured workers in Norwalk. When an employer is unwilling to provide sufficient workers' compensation benefits as are dictated by Connecticut State Law, then we are honored to step in and pursue the level of benefits that the injured worker rightfully deserves. We have a deep understanding of Connecticut State workers' compensation laws and how they apply to your unique case.
In our years in practice, we have helped numerous injured workers obtain the benefits they rightfully deserved. In 2010, the firm was nominated and recognized by Super Lawyers as a "Rising Star", an honor that is only bestowed upon 2.5% of attorneys in a state. We are fully prepared to represent you in the claims process, and our foremost priority is to help you obtain the most benefits as possible, that way you can better take care of yourself and your family.
