Don’t Live With A Workplace Back Injury — Get Workers’ Comp Benefits

For more than 25 years, managing attorney Robert C. Sousa has successfully represented injured Connecticut residents in workers’ compensation and personal injury claims. Many of our clients sustained spinal cord, neck and back injuries from traumatic accidents or through repetitive work duties. Those injuries included:

  • Lower back injury (strains, sprains)
  • Herniated disc
  • Ruptured disc
  • Broken vertebrae
  • Back fusion
  • Compression fractures
  • Paralysis, including paraplegia and quadriplegia

Although many individuals suffering from back injuries are still mobile, it is often excruciating for them to perform their jobs.

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.
