Workers’ Compensation

Dedicated Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

If you have been injured at work you may be entitled to benefits. The workers’ compensation system in Connecticut is intended to be a streamlined process to help injured workers get the medical care and compensation they need to recover. Unfortunately, in the real world the insurance companies and big business have an interest in keeping their costs down to protect their own bottom line. That is where we come in. The lawyers at Schulman & Associates take great pride in helping people get the full and fair compensation they deserve.

Let Us Guide You Through The Complex Claims Process

The workers’ compensation process is complex and many injured workers feel uncomfortable trying to get benefits from their employer and the insurance companies. We will stand by your side and take the legal burdens off your shoulders so you can focus on getting better. We understand how difficult it is to get proper medical care and keep food on the table when a work injury keeps you from work. We draw on more than 50 years of experience to help clients secure the best possible results.

We will work with you every step of the way. Employers and insurance providers frequently challenge issues such as whether the injury happened at work, timing issues on reporting the injury, as well as the severity of the injury. We investigate every detail and advise clients about timing issues to build a strong case. We work hard to resolve workers’ compensation claims efficiently. As trial lawyers, we do everything under our power to achieve the best results. Our representation includes strong advocacy in all levels of the system, including all forms of administrative hearings, any appeals to the Compensation Review Board and the appellate courts when necessary to safeguard the rights of our clients.

If you were injured in a workplace accident that was caused by a third party, we will evaluate your case in its entirety. Many industrial and construction site accidents involve contractors or workers from different companies. If someone from another company was negligent in causing the accident, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim, over and above your workers’ comp claim to maximize your compensation. We are a one-stop shop for injured workers.
