What Workers’ Compensation Rights Do You Have in East Haven, CT?
As an employee in East Haven, CT, you have several areas of protection when you suffer a work-related personal injury accident or illness, including the following.
When you are injured at work, or while doing work-related duties and need medical care, you are entitled to quality medical attention. If your incapacity is prolonged, you are entitled to medical treatments as long as they are required. For example, extended care such as surgeries, procedures, therapy, and medications often help promote healing.
For injured workers, medical bills can be costly, especially if you are off from work and currently losing wages. Your employer has the right to choose your treating physician or hospital in which you receive medical care.
Sometimes employers deny medical care depending on the expense. When you feel you are not getting the medical care you deserve or your employer denies you proper medical care, call 1-888-WIN-FAST to speak to one of our lawyers today.
Lost wages and income
When you are ill or injured because of a workplace incident and you can't work, workers’ compensation benefits are supposed to make sure you receive two-thirds of your average wages. If your employer is forcing you to work while injured or is not honoring your physician's medical advice, you need a lawyer who knows the Connecticut laws regarding workers’ compensation benefits.
There are times when injuries are so severe that you cannot return to work or perform the same job function. If this is the case, your employer has the right to stop offering temporary disability and can suggest a final settlement before releasing you from employment.
Don’t settle your claim without speaking to one of our attorneys. We can ensure you get the highest settlement.

Types of Workers’ Compensation Injuries
Employees face various dangers throughout their workday. Injuries from risks both seen and unseen are unintentional most of the time. The following are some of the most common work comp injuries.
Many injuries happen from faulty machinery and sometimes from neglected maintenance. At other times, the machinery faults for no apparent reason. Our attorneys at Gould Injury Law will investigate and can help you prove your personal injury case was due to negligence.
Slip-and-fall accidents are one of the most frequent types of work-related accidents. From falls related to debris or uneven ground, to falls from scaffolding or other heights, safety measures should always be in place in the workplace.
If you have fallen, please don’t suffer in silence. Give us a call today to get the medical attention and wage benefits you deserve.
In some workplace environments, handling dangerous materials is a regular practice. However, toxic and hazardous materials can cause immediate dangers or contribute to illnesses years down the road. Our attorneys can help you determine if your illness injury was the direct result of handling dangerous materials.
Many different chemical substances can cause severe health issues. Acids and even organic-based materials can cause immediate injuries or illnesses that can go unnoticed or diagnosed until years later.
Electrocutions and burns
Workers that deal with electric circuits and high-voltage infrastructures are vulnerable to electrocutions and burns. If you sustained a burn or another type of injury caused by electronic circuits at work, you need to contact an attorney at Gould Injury Law. Our experienced legal team at our law firm will guide you through filing a claim and help you get your benefits as fast as possible.
Office workers can also be affected by work-related injuries. Desks that do not height-adjust or chairs that don’t support the back could cause medical issues. Too many hours at a computer screen or operating other types of equipment can cause vision and hearing loss.
An attorney will investigate your case, along with your medical records, and help you build your claim. You deserve to be compensated for your medical bills and lost wages because of inadequate office or other equipment at work.
We take pride in the fact that we can usually get claims settled fast without going to court. Whether we take your case that far or not, though, we work faster than many other law firms. You shouldn’t have to wait any longer than necessary to get your benefits.
