Workers' Compensation

Recovering from a serious injury is difficult enough without worrying about losing your job and livelihood in the process. It can be difficult to know what to do and where to turn after a work injury. You don’t want to jeopardize your employment, but you also need medical treatment and may not be able to immediately return to your normal job duties. Something has to be done.

When you have questions about your work injury, talk to us. Our Connecticut workers’ compensation attorneys represent employees from all industries who have suffered work-related injuries. We will answer your questions and explain your rights. If you have been injured on the job, Morrissey, Morrissey, & Rydzik, LLC is here to help.

Heart & Hypertension

Connecticut allows firefighters and police officers with hypertension and heart disease to receive benefits equivalent to those found in workers' compensation, without the burden of proving that the condition was in fact caused by their work. Such cases fall under the state’s Heart and Hypertension Act, which was signed into law in 1971.

Many afflicted police officers and firefighters continue to suffer from heart disease and hypertension as a result of their jobs without seeking the compensatory benefits they are entitled to under the law. Fortunately, you don’t have to suffer alone. Morrissey, Morrissey, & Rydzik, LLC has seen an incredible amount of success with these claims so please don’t hesitate to consult with us to learn more.

Personal Injury

After an accident, the pain and uncertainty can be overwhelming—especially if your injury was caused by the negligence or recklessness of a third party. You may have found yourself facing costly medical bills and other costs as well as time off work for recovery. How are you supposed to afford all these sudden expenses?

Speaking with a skilled personal injury lawyer may be the first step towards a solution. If you’ve been seriously injured, let us put our decades of collective legal experience to work for you.

Accidents happen at the most unexpected moments and can change your life completely. An unexpected incident may result in serious injuries and significant recovery time. You don’t have to face the situation alone. Our lawyers are here to help you.

Social Security Disability

The more a person has worked, earned, and paid into the system, the more compensation that person is eligible to receive in the event they become disabled. If you or a loved one is filing for SSD benefits, there is an eligibility requirement that you will have to meet showing a specific earnings record. These issues and calculations can be complex and often need a thorough attorney review prior to and during the application process, especially because there are many common mistakes that can undermine your claim for benefits.

There are many other details of SSD benefits that you should know if you are trying to apply for these benefits or if you have already been denied and need to appeal your claim. Talking with an experienced attorney is in your best interests and may even help you expedite your claim.
