Municipal Workplace Accidents
Since 1993, Sousa & Minogue, LLC, has helped Connecticut firefighters, sewer maintenance workers, street cleaners, custodians, teachers and other municipal workers obtain the financial support and medical care they need to heal from painful and sometimes debilitating workplace accidents.
Helping You Obtain Disability Pension And Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Led by managing lawyer Robert C. Sousa, our comprehensive workers’ compensation practice has served as a valuable legal resource for Connecticut municipal workers employed by:
- Sewage departments
- Public Works departments
- Fire departments
- Police offices
- Boards of education
Heart and hypertension problems, head and brain injuries, back and neck injuries — all these are types of injuries our clients have sustained while performing their job duties as a municipal worker. We recognize the serious and often lifelong physical consequences these injuries carry for our clients. We are determined to help you obtain the medical care you need now and in the future.

If you have suffered a traumatic work injury or have developed a repetitive work injury over time, it is important to contact an attorney who can help you understand your rights as well as the benefits you may be entitled to receive.
Our Waterbury municipal workplace accident attorney can help you obtain a disability pension from your municipality in addition to workers’ compensation benefits. Although the benefits you are able to receive are often governed by the municipality you are in, many cities allow workers to obtain disability pension and workers’ comp benefits at the same time.
Most municipalities have pension boards that will rule on claims. Our firm will work with your municipality’s pension board, help you accurately complete the application and appear in front of the board on your behalf.
