Get The Benefits You Need For A Workplace Accident Or Injury

Experienced With All Stages Of Workers’ Compensation
Workers’ comp provides medical and wage benefits for a work-related injury or illness. You are entitled to these benefits without regard to fault, but employers and their insurance carriers may put up barriers. We can knowledgeably address every facet of the process where you may need legal help:
- Filing the initial claim
- Denial of needed medical treatments
- Denial of workers’ comp benefits
- Incorrect calculation of benefits
- Low disability rating
- Repetitive stress injury/occupational disease claims
- Termination of benefits
- Lump-sum settlement of disability benefits
In Connecticut, injured workers can choose their own doctors. But once you choose a medical provider, you cannot change your mind, and medical documentation is critical to your claim. So it is crucial to consult a lawyer early to make sure your treating physician is one who is known for providing accurate and full diagnoses.
Two Heads Are Better Than One
Our attorneys work every case together. This dual approach assures attention to detail in filing claims or appeals, and sound legal strategy if your employer or the insurance company is trying to lowball your benefits or deny your claim altogether. It also means that both of our lawyers are familiar with your case when you have questions or when problems arise.
De Lucia & Levine is committed to providing superior service and representation to every client. We understand that a workers’ comp claim is not merely “paperwork” to you, but vital to your medical recovery and financial stability. We take your case seriously, too.
