Helping Injured Workers Recover Fair Compensation
If you have been injured at work or on the job in Connecticut, you may already know how difficult it is to get the workers’ compensation benefits and medical treatment you deserve. In Connecticut, employers often control which doctors their injured employees see. Often these physicians have the employer’s best interests in mind. They may limit the treatment you receive or try to send you back to work before you are fully recovered.
In addition, insurance companies routinely deny and delay benefits, even if you have a valid claim. They will not volunteer to provide you with your entitled benefits such as permanent partial disability benefits. You need to have a working knowledge and understanding of the workers’ compensation laws to obtain your rightful compensation. At the The Malowitz Law Firm, LLC, I have this knowledge and understanding, and I will work to maximize the benefits you receive from the insurance company in your workers’ compensation claim. Contact me to discuss your claim in a free case evaluation by calling 203-517-0110.

I have over 20 years of experience helping victims of accidents at work. I will work hard to ensure that you receive the full benefits you deserve, including benefits you may not realize you are entitled to.
I assist clients in filing initial claims. I work to secure authorization for you to obtain the medical treatment you need and receive prompt and full reimbursement of your lost wages under the law.

What Injuries Are Covered Under Workers’ Compensation Laws?
In general, any injury that occurs during the course and scope of one’s employment is a compensable workers’ comp injury. This includes injuries at one’s place of employment as well as injuries that occur away from work if they are related to your employment. I am experienced in all work-related injuries, including:
- Back injuries (i.e., heavy lifting) and neck injuries
- Sprains, strains and fractures keeping you off the job
- Burn injuries from a fire or explosion
- Repetitive stress and occupational injuries
- Falls (ladders, scaffolding, slip and fall on a slick floor)
- Car or truck accidents on the job
- Heart disease and heart attacks by firefighters and police officers
- Assaults by a co-worker, supervisor or customer
- Fatal accidents (death benefits for family members)
- Accidents on construction sites and other dangerous job sites
The Fees I Charge In Workers’ Compensation Claims
All workers’ compensation cases are taken on a contingency fee basis. This means that I do not receive attorney’s fees unless I recover benefits for you. Costs are not contingent upon the outcome of your case.
In Connecticut, the percentage that an attorney receives in payment for legal services is fixed by law. This means that you will pay the same attorney’s fees regardless of which attorney you hire — so it is in your interests to retain an experienced, skilled and knowledgeable workers’ compensation attorney such as myself.
Act Quickly To Protect Your Right To Benefits
If you have been injured on the job or while at work, the state of Connecticut limits the period you have to file for benefits. Therefore, it is important to consult an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer right away.
