Our Board-Certified Workers’ Compensation Specialists Are Dedicated To Injured Workers' Well-Being

Very few attorneys qualify for board certification in the area of workers' compensation law. The Connecticut Bar Association's (CBA's) Standing Committee on Workers' Compensation must approve certification based on rigorous standards.

What Does It Mean To Be A Board-Certified Workers' Compensation Specialist?

It means that the certified attorney has shown an ongoing commitment to workers' compensation law through their years of experience, the percentage of their practice devoted to workers' compensation and their standing in the community of their peers.

A board-certified workers' compensation specialist must first submit a written application to the CBA Workers' Compensation Standing Committee to confirm whether he or she qualifies as a potential specialist in the area of workers' compensation. The applicant must confirm that the required percentage of his or her practice is devoted to workers' compensation law, submit peer references to confirm his or her good standing in the legal community and document that he or she has attended the requisite number of seminars (continuing legal education) focused on workers' compensation practice.

Once these preliminary requirements are satisfied, the applicant is eligible to take and pass a rigorous written examination administered by the CBA Workers' Compensation Examining Committee to become a board-certified workers' compensation specialist. To maintain his or her qualification as a specialist, the attorney must continue his or her legal education on a yearly basis and become recertified after five years.

What Are The Benefits Of Hiring A Specialist?

If you have a back injury, you should go to a chiropractor. If you have a heart problem, you should seek an evaluation with a cardiologist. Similarly, if you have a work injury, you should seek representation from an attorney who specializes in workers' compensation law. Complex problems require specialized knowledge and informed solutions.

Board-certified attorneys have been vetted for their skills and ethics by the Connecticut Bar Association. There are many reasons to hire a board-certified specialist in workers' compensation if you need legal representation following an accident in the workplace.
