Stratford Skilled Laborers Lawyer

Independent Contractors And Skilled Laborers Have Rights After An Injury

Skilled laborers have a high level of knowledge or expertise in their field and critical thinking skills required to do their work. While these employees may not face the same obvious safety risks as construction workers or steelworkers, they are still vulnerable to workplace injuries.

At Morizio Law Firm, P.C., we understand the unique challenges faced by skilled workers who suffer serious illness or injury in the workplace. Our Stratford skilled laborers lawyers advocate on behalf of injured workers, including:

  • Electricians
  • Machine operators
  • Pipefitters
  • Plumbers
  • Welders

Injuries To Independent Contractors

For financial reasons, many Connecticut employers choose to engage independent contractors for certain kinds of work rather than hire full-time employees. These contractors typically have specialized skills much like those of full-time skilled laborers, but they do not enjoy the same benefits under the state’s workers’ compensation laws.

When employers misclassify employees as independent contractors to save money, it may be possible to show that an injured contractor actually performed the duties of a full-time employee, which would make the contractor eligible for workers’ compensation. At Morizio Law Firm, P.C., we have represented many misclassified workers and helped them claim the workers’ compensation benefits they deserve.
