Norwalk Workers' Compensation Lawyers
The attorneys at Kimmel & Kimmel, LLC, have more than 50 years of combined experience in representing injured workers in the Norwalk area. If you were injured at work while performing your duties, our firm can pursue the workers' compensation you need and deserve.
Workers' Compensation for All Types of Work Injuries
Workers can be injured in many ways, and the severity of the injury can be as diverse as the job. Our attorneys have handled workers' compensation cases involving workplace accidents that resulted in many different types of injury:
- Knee injuries
- Lifting injuries
- Lower back injuries
- Slip and fall injuries
- Major fall injuries
Workplace accidents can range from a fall from a roof to an employee injured in a car accident while driving for work. In the case of employees injured in car accidents while performing work duties, we may be able to file two separate claims for compensation: a personal injury claim and a workers' compensation claim.
Filing for Workers' Compensation
Does Not Mean You Are Suing Your Boss
It is often hard for clients to understand that a workers' compensation claim is not a lawsuit against your employer. You are merely collecting money provided by your company's workers' compensation insurance company. As long as you were injured on the job doing the work assigned to you, your injury and/or accident is not a contested matter.
Workers' compensation is the process of filing a claim under your employer's insurance policy to recover compensation for an on-the-job injury.
Because a workers' compensation claim is not a lawsuit, you are not entitled to money for pain and suffering as you would be in a personal injury case. Under the Workers' Compensation Act, you can recover for lost wages, permanent injury and the cost of medical bills, but not damages for pain and suffering. Our attorneys can help you pursue the compensation you need.
