Workers Compensation
Potok Law, LLC specializes in representing clients who have been injured at work in Connecticut. When you are the victim of an on-the-job injury, hiring a skilled Connecticut workers' compensation attorney to protect your rights is a smart idea.
The workers compensation law is a no-fault system, and it provides a variety of benefits to you when you are injured or disabled as the result of a work-related accident regardless of whether the injury occurred as a result of negligence. These benefits include medical coverage, disability benefits, and reimbursement for loss of work due to the accident. These benefits are calculated by plugging your weekly compensation rate into various mathematical formulas to arrive at the benefits to which you are entitled. At Potok Law, we are very familiar with rules and formulas that affect your benefits.

The Connecticut Workers' Compensation System allows injured workers to recover any or all of the following benefits:

* Necessary medical treatment
* Weekly benefits while disabled
* Vocational rehabilitation
* Additional benefits for scarring, disfigurement, and
permanent physical impairment

It is illegal for an employer to discriminate against an employee who has filed a workers' compensation claim. If you have been injured at the workplace, Potok Law can help you recover each and every benefit to which you are entitled.
