Helping Injured Workers in Connecticut

Protecting The Rights Of Injured Workers And Their Families

Lawrence Morizio practices workers’ compensation law because he cares about injured workers; he cares about people. Morizio Law Firm handles the full realm of workers’ compensation claims, from the biggest cases to the everyday injured worker.

Stratford Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

Workers’ compensation is a specialized area of the law, and that’s why you need a specialist to help you with your claim. Lots of lawyers practice in this highly technical area, but only a handful take the time and make the effort to become board-certified as workers’ compensation specialists. At Morizio Law Firm, P.C., workers’ compensation is virtually all we do. Our firm is here to help you with all medical and financial aspects of your work-related injury, including recovering Connecticut workers’ compensation benefits, Social Security Disability, or personal injury tort damages when a third-party’s negligence is to blame in causing the workplace accident. Whatever your needs, count on the Stratford workers’ compensation lawyers at Morizio Law Firm for help.

Here for You when You Get Injured on the Job

Connecticut workers’ compensation covers all employees in the state, whether full-time or part-time, from the first day of employment. Workers’ comp pays for medical care as well as wage replacement and other benefits. It’s the exclusive remedy for a work-related injury or illness. You can’t sue your employer or a co-worker, even if their negligence caused the accident.

On the plus side, workers’ compensation is a no-fault system. You don’t have to prove that someone else was negligent, and you don’t have to prove that you weren’t to blame. On the downside, securing benefits can be an uphill battle, with employers and their insurers trying their hardest to delay or deny your claim, or terminate your benefits as soon as possible, even before you’ve fully recovered. The Morizio Law Firm provides the practical guidance and persuasive advocacy you need to make sure your benefits are paid appropriately – on time and in full. If you get hurt on the job in Connecticut, call Morizio Law firm for immediate assistance.

Assisting Injured Workers with All Their Needs

Workers’ compensation is complex, and there’s a lot to consider. Hopefully, your injury isn’t bad, and you can get back to work quickly, with workers’ comp stepping in to help you until you get back on your feet. But if your issues are complicated, or you start sensing pushback from the insurance carrier, act quickly to secure your rights by bringing the expert workers’ compensation attorney Lawrence Morizio on board. Morizio Law Firm can help you with any issue you might encounter, including:

Representing All Kinds of Injured Workers in Connecticut

Workers’ compensation is not the same for every employee. Some workers have special laws that apply to the benefits they can recover, like first responders. Other employees, like maritime workers, have an entirely different set of laws that apply. Workers in other industries and occupations have unique and difficult issues they must face when they are injured on the job.

  • Police, Firefighters and Municipal Workers

Lawrence and the office staff were there for us when we needed them.

We were very lucky and very grateful to have Lawrence help during a very hard time. My brother had an injury to both arms and he could not work. From the first visit we had such a great experience. We were kept up to date with everything that was happening. He was able to hold the company responsible and start a workers compensation case. If we had any questions we were able to speak with Lawrence along the way. I would highly recommend Morizio Law Firm.

— Lynne Gregory
Thank you Atty. Morizio for all of you help and for having my best interest at heart!

Being referred to Atty. Morizio made me feel at ease about my situation almost instantly from all the great things I heard about him from referrals. But I was put even more at ease when he called me after hours to go over the details of my case and make me an appointment a day later to see him. He reassured me I was in good hands and that I was doing everything right. This was truly important to me because my employer was making me feel otherwise. When walking into an establishment, a first impression means a lot. For me, my first impression was a clean office, with friendly staff to greet me as I walked in the door! During my meeting there was not one issue that wasn't addressed! He covered all the bases, and was immediately ready to get to work. He's only been involved in my case 3-5 days and my stress level has gone down, I'm being treated fair at my place of employment now, and my case has gone from being reviewed for weeks to approved.

— Molly Mitchell
