Workers’ compensation is a no-fault insurance program designed to help Connecticut residents who sustain workplace injuries pay for related medical expenses. In addition, workers’ compensation will provide a portion of an injured worker’s wages, helping to alleviate some of the financial strain that can accompany time off work to recover.
Filing for workers’ compensation and getting swift benefits are not always the same thing. In fact, many workers’ compensation claims are initially denied due to minor errors or missing documentation. Your workers’ compensation lawyer will be able to help you file your claim to help you avoid denial and, should a denial occur, help you appeal the decision and get the compensation you are entitled to.

Help for Injured Workers
Connecticut workers’ compensation law is incredibly complex. While intended to provide compensation for people with work-related injury and illness, the process for filing and collecting workers’ compensation is often fraught with difficulties.
Having a Connecticut workers’ compensation attorney on your side is the most effective way to ensure you are treated fairly and provided the compensation you deserve. The workers’ compensation lawyers at Penner Law Firm understand that you are currently without income and facing the potential for mounting medical bills. We are prepared to get to work on your case quickly to help ensure you are provided compensation in the shortest time possible.
As personal injury lawyers, our attorneys can also assess your claim to determine if taking legal action may be a better solution for your particular situation. This is often a better option for people who have suffered in construction site accidents or in instances where workers’ compensation is unavailable. During your initial consultation at one of our Connecticut offices we will evaluate your claim, discuss all of your options, and help you determine the most effective course of action.
