In most cases, injured workers are eligible to receive workers comp if they were hurt at work. Such money can be used for a wide range of expenses, including:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Physical rehabilitation
Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you could be eligible for additional compensation for your workplace accident. This is especially true if you sustain an injury in an accident caused by someone working for another company. Such accidents (known as third-party workplace accidents) often occur at construction sites, where several different companies often work at the same place at the same time. One law firm has secured millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for construction accident victims throughout Connecticut.

"Do I need a lawyer for a workplace injury in Waterbury?"
If workers' compensation covers your workplace accident expenses, why do you need a lawyer? We hear that question a lot. What you might not realize is workers' compensation can be tough to get, and it rarely covers all your expenses related to your workplace accident.
And if your employer knew that your workplace conditions were hazardous but did nothing to address such concerns, you could have a strong legal case against your employer. You might even be able to pursue a third-party workplace accident claim if someone working for another company caused your injury.
You need to think long term about your workplace accident. If you can't work for weeks or months or perhaps ever again, you need to make sure you receive the compensation you deserve so you can continue to live your life with dignity.
