Connecticut Workers Compensation Lawyers
Eagan, Donohue, Van Dyke & Falsey, LLP’s Connecticut workers compensation lawyers represents individuals that have been injured at work to obtain the full range of workers’ compensation benefits available to them. These injuries include on-the-job injuries due to a specific event, and injuries that occur over time due to repetitive physical stress, such as carpal tunnel syndrome and leg problems. Injuries also include other work-related illnesses such as hypertension, heart disease, breathing problems or exposure to toxic chemicals or fumes.
In Connecticut, employers are required to carry Workers’ Compensation insurance, or qualify for self-insurance to cover such injuries. This may cover benefits for lost earnings during recovery from an injury, reimbursement of medical expenses, and compensation for any permanent impairment or disability. Determining your eligibility and compensation can give rise to complex issues which may lead to disputes. Eagan, Donohue, Van Dyke & Falsey, LLP’s Connecticut workers compensation lawyers advocate for you to make sure you receive fair payment and medical care for your injuries.
