Proudly Representing Connecticut Workers Since 1985
Workers who suffer a workplace injury or illness have the right to seek workers’ compensation benefits to cover their damages. Unfortunately, filing a successful claim is not always easy.
At Embry, Neusner, Arscott & Shafner LLC, we understand because we have represented thousands of injured workers. Founded in 1985, our law firm has earned a reputation as one of eastern Connecticut’s preeminent workers’ compensation and personal injury firms. We work with clients in a variety of industries, including General Dynamics Electric Boat.
Workers’ Comp: The Basics
In Connecticut, all employers with at least one employee must have workers’ compensation insurance. Workers’ comp is designed to cover employees’ wages and resulting costs if they suffer an injury or illness in the workplace. Some of the most common expenses covered include:
- Doctor appointments
- Hospital visits
- Physical therapy
- Prescription medications
- Lost wages
Unfortunately, many insurers do not want to pay the full amount that an injured worker needs. They also frequently reject perfectly valid claims for insubstantial reasons. In these situations, it is time to contact a workers’ compensation lawyer.
