Administrative Hearings

For advice and information pertinent to your individual circumstances after a workplace injury in Connecticut, contact Sousa & Minogue, LLC, by phone or email. We offer injured employees free initial consultations with an experienced, proven-effective workers’ compensation lawyer.

We assist and advise workers’ comp applicants through all phases of a claim, including filing a claim and administrative hearings.

Make sure your rights are protected when you have your day in court at a Connecticut workers’ compensation administrative hearing. Enlist the assistance of a workers’ comp lawyer who will see you get what you are entitled to after a workplace injury: surgery, rehabilitation therapy, skin grafts or other treatments that your injury merits.

When I injured my back at work my employer denied that my injury occurred at work. Because of this they would not pay me disability benefits and pay for my doctors’ bills. Since my back injury was so serious that it required surgery I could not work. My not having a pay check placed my family in a bad situation.
Although many of the issues in my case were complex, Attorney Sousa constantly met with me to explain what was going on with my case. He answered all my questions. Without the legal assistance I received from Sousa & Minogue, LLC , I do not know where my family would be today.
