Audrey J. Porzio:
Connecticut is in the top 10 states in the country for its workplace injury rate. Thousands of workers in Connecticut are injured every year while working on construction sites. With all the work-related injuries occurring, Workers Compensation was created to provide wage replacement and medical benefits to employees injured on the job.
If you are injured on the job, you may have to miss months or even years of work. At the Law Offices of Audrey J. Porzio, we understand that for many people, living without a paycheck for a month is impossible, much less an entire year. Additionally, collecting compensation can be a difficult process due the complex nature of the current workers compensation laws. Injured workers often benefit from consulting with a knowledgeable attorney who can advise them on protecting their Worker’s Compensation benefits.
Connecticut injury lawyer Audrey J. Porzio is an experienced Connecticut workers’ compensation attorney who will help you obtain the compensation you rightfully deserve. Attorney Porizio will aggressively represent your case and work to achieve the most favorable outcome for your benefits case.

Types of Disability Benefits in Connecticut
There are several types of disability benefits that may apply to your injury or illness, including:
TEMPORARY TOTAL DISABILITY is paid if you are totally disabled from a work-related injury or illness.
TEMPORARY PARTIAL DISABILITY is paid if an employee is able to perform some type of work, but not the same kind of work or the same number of hours they worked at the time of the injury.
PERMANENT PARTIAL DISABILITY is paid to the claimant who has suffered a permanent, partial loss of use of a body part(s), due to their work-related injury.
DISCRETIONARY BENEFITS can be additional benefits to an employee after he/she has been paid all of their Permanent Partial Disability.
JOB RETRAINING vocational rehabilitation for those employees who are injured or become ill as a result of their work, and cannot return to the type of work which caused the injury or illness.
DEPENDENT SURVIVOR (“FATALITY” BENEFITS is paid to a surviving spouse or other eligible dependent when an employee’s death is caused by a work-related injury or illness.
At the Law Offices of Audrey J. Porzio, we understand how important workers’ compensation benefits are to your financial stability after a workplace accident. Disputes with workers compensation insurance companies are not uncommon, and some injured workers are unfairly denied the money they need to support themselves and their families.
If you or someone you know has been injured in a workplace accident, at the Law Offices of Audrey J. Porzio, we are committed to helping injured individuals file and protect their workers’ compensation claims and appeals. To discuss your situation if you’ve suffered an on-the-job illness or injury, contact us or call our office at 203-575-1700.
