Workers’ compensation benefits have been deemed so advantageous by the federal government that workers are denied the opportunity to seek any other compensation or benefits from their employees following injuries. Why, then, can obtaining workers’ compensation benefits be so difficult?
Advocating For Injured Workers Since 1978
At the Gillis Law Firm in New Haven, Connecticut, we understand the frustration and fear that can accompany both workplace injuries and the workers’ compensation process. Our attorneys represent injured workers in need of workers’ compensation benefits:
- Immediately following an injury and before a claim has been filed
- After a workers’ compensation claim has been denied
We handle workers’ compensation benefit claims following accidents occurring in all industries and involving a broad range of injuries. We are prepared to help you through all aspects of the workers’ compensation process, answering questions about any and all workers’ compensation topics, including:
- Construction site accidents, including falls from heights, injuries caused by falling objects or debris, forklift accidents and more
- Health care worker injuries, such as injuries while moving patients
- Occupational disease and repetitive trauma
- Manufacturing accidents
We’ll Help You Get The Benefits You Deserve
We are proud to represent construction workers, health care workers, manual laborers and union members in all industries. Wherever you work, if your injury occurred in the workplace or is work-related, we can help. We have the skills and knowledge to help get all the benefits you are entitled to, including:
- Medical benefits
- Wage benefits
- Permanent partial disability (PPD) benefits
Because we are also personal injury lawyers, we can also handle third-party liability claims and cases involving Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) violations. And because each of our partners has more than 20 years of experience, you know you’re in good hands.
Just Because Your Case Is Denied Doesn’t Mean You Don’t Have One
Injured workers unfortunately often find that valid claims for serious workplace injuries are routinely denied by the workers’ compensation board. If your claim has been denied, we can:
- Request a hearing before the Workers’ Compensation Commission
- Investigate your accident and prepare your claim
- Attend your hearing with you and represent you in your appealed bid for compensation
We most often obtain medical records, get statements from witnesses, photograph the accident scene and obtain other evidence to strengthen your case. The result? Thousands of successful workers’ compensation claims handled since 1978. We charge no fee without legal recovery, and offer free initial consultations, so you have nothing to lose by consulting our firm.
