Fatal Workplace Accidents

When your loved one has been fatally injured at work, it can be hard to think of anything other than the pain and heartache you are feeling. At Sousa & Minogue, LLC, we want you to know we understand how difficult this time is for you and your family.

We are here to help you understand your rights as well as the benefits you may be entitled to receive according to Connecticut workers’ compensation laws.

Let Our Compassionate Workers’ Comp Attorneys Help You During This Difficult Time

Managing lawyer Robert C. Sousa has spent more than 25 years guiding Connecticut UPS truck drivers, construction workers, police officers, firefighters and other workers and their families through the complicated workers’ compensation claims’ and appeals’ processes.

When traumatic work injuries turn fatal for your loved one, the time you have to file a notice of claim is very limited. Waiting can make collecting benefits you are entitled to receive impossible. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you.

We realize no amount of financial compensation can ever erase the pain you feel or bring your loved one back to you, but it can help to ease the burdens associated with:

  • Lost wages/lost earning potential
  • Funeral expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium

Our team has the knowledge and the resources to help you secure benefits you need to move on with your life. If your loved one was a firefighter, police officer or another municipal worker, you may be entitled to alternative benefits.

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.
