If you have been injured in a work site accident, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, even if the injury is related to a pre-existing medical condition or prior injury. For example, if you suffer from a known heart condition, you may still be able to recover benefits if you can show that high stress at work contributed to a heart attack.
However, workers’ compensation insurance will not readily approve work injury claims when a known condition exists. In many instances, the initial claim is denied.
Because of the complex nature of these claims, it is to your benefit to hire an experienced attorney from a law firm with the time and resources to effectively fight for your rights.
The law firm of Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., in New Haven, Connecticut, is a strong legal advocate for people who have aggravated a pre-existing condition at work. Our work injury attorneys have decades of experience helping clients recover full and fair workers’ compensation benefits, and we understand the steps necessary to convince a workers’ compensation insurance company to accept a claim.
Additionally, we represent clients in personal injury claims. If a third party — unassociated with the employer — was partially at fault for the aggravation of the pre-existing condition, we may be able to seek additional compensation. We are focused on helping our clients with all of their legal needs, so they can focus on recovering and moving forward with their lives.
Our firm has a long history of success in fighting for injured employees throughout Connecticut and their families. We have recovered thousands of dollars in workers’ compensation benefits. See our Cases & Verdicts page for examples of our successes.
