Vigorously Representing UPS Workers When They Have Been Seriously Injured

Stratford UPS workplace accident lawyer Robert C. Sousa has a strong track record of success on behalf of truck drivers who have suffered traumatic injuries as well as repetitive stress injuries. These injuries often include severe neck or back pain, broken bones or lacerations as a result of lifting or the loading/unloading of heavy packages or cargo.

Often, the long-term consequences of a commercial driver’s injuries are not immediately apparent. Over time, however, the lingering effects of an injury may become severe enough to render a commercial driver unable to continue working, or to continue doing regular activities at home (mowing the lawn, clearing snow from the driveway or doing home maintenance) or at play (fishing, golfing or hiking, for example).

For this reason, it is important for an injured driver to obtain a thorough medical evaluation as soon as possible after a traumatic injury — or as soon as possible after the onset of a repetitive stress disorder.

Do not hesitate to contact our law offices simply because you do not think your injury is bad enough to make you eligible for workers’ compensation. We have assisted many UPS employees before you, including recently retired injured drivers.

Attorney Robert C. Sousa will work with you to learn about your injuries and the circumstances that caused your injuries. We will explain how Connecticut workers’ compensation laws apply to your case and guide you through the claims process. We want to help you recover, and we will do everything possible to make sure you are receiving the medical treatment you need.

If you are a UPS employee in Connecticut and suffer from the effects of a workplace injury, ask other drivers at your terminal for a workers’ comp lawyer referral. Chances are, they will refer you to Sousa & Minogue, LLC.

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.

Around six years ago my wife and I were going through some severe medical conditions which were attributed to work related injuries. We had no money coming in and things were beginning to get pretty hectic. I didn’t know what to do.
When I came to Attorney Sousa I was in financial difficulties and had bill collectors chasing me all over the place. He was able to get me the money I needed and the surgery to fix me. I owe my life to Attorney Sousa.
