Can you rely on Worker's Compensation?

If you or your loved one has sustained injuries while at work, you may be required to file a workers’ compensation claim. However, workers’ compensation may not cover all of the expenses related to an injury, and it does not address the issue of mental anguish or emotional distress, or accidents caused by negligence.

At McCoy & McCoy, our work injury lawyers will fight for your rights to recover damages for workplace injuries by filing a personal injury claim on your behalf. Compensation is awarded for hospital bills, disability equipment, ongoing medical costs, future medical complications and/or expenses, your pain and suffering, emotional turmoil, and other factors that may be applicable.

Our principal lawyer, Frank McCoy Jr., is certified in civil trial law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy – a distinction that fewer than 0.5 percent of all Connecticut lawyers have earned.

What do I do if I was injured at work?

If you were injured at work, it is important that you follow these steps. 

1. Report the Injury. Inform your supervisor/manager/boss as soon as possible about the work accident. We encourage you to report the injury in writing in addition to a verbal statement. It is crucial that you report the work injury right away because if you way more than a month, you may lose your opportunity to receive full compensation. 

 

2. Obtain Medical Treatment. Get checked out by a medical professional right away so that you can begin your treatment plan and recovery process. 

 

3. Contact a Work Accident Lawyer. If your workplace injury caused you to file a workers’ compensation claim, it is best to contact a work accident lawyer in Connecticut to help you with this process. Without the advice of a work injury lawyer, you may not be able to recover as much compensation as you might be entitled to.
