For Workers Since 1985

Learn About Our Case Studies

For three decades, Embry, Neusner, Arscott & Shafner LLC’s clients throughout Connecticut have relied on our legal guidance. We fight for clients in matters of personal injury, worker’s compensation, veterans’ and social security disability benefits. Our experience representing the workforce in the fight for fairness for workers is unparalleled, particularly when seeking benefits under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act.

We’re here to help you navigate the many unknowns of what to do and where to start when you’re facing this type of legal matter. We have worked alongside doctors, scientists, unions and workers in these efforts to get our clients the compensation they deserve. Here, we present a few case studies of our successes.

Cases Handled And Won By Our Team

  • Won benefits for two concurrent claims

Handled two claims for a rigger who was exposed to asbestos and developed lung cancer while working for Electric Boat. We won one claim and appealed the second to the Connecticut Supreme Court, which awarded compensation to the victim.

  • Lifetime benefits for 30-year-old back injury and death

On April 20, 2019, a judge awarded lifetime benefits to our client who was a widow whose husband’s work-related back injuries from the 1980s led to his death. We successfully proved a continuous chain of causation from the original work injuries to his death more than 30 years later.

  • Lifetime benefits for orthopedic injuries and death

A judge awarded lifetime benefits to the widow of a man who died after years of complications and immobility from ankle injuries he suffered at work decades before. We successfully proved that the deceased’s ankle injuries led to immobility, infections, weight gain and his death.
