Respected Judgment In Valuing And Pursuing Workers’ Compensation Claims: Bristol, CT, And Surrounding Areas
The quality of our legal representation has been recognized by our colleagues and by the legal profession at large. Our accolades include:
- AV* Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell’s peer-review rating system, its highest available rating
- Inclusion in Connecticut Super Lawyers magazine
- Listed among Hartford Magazine’s top lawyers
We will use these recognized abilities to help you understand the value of your workplace injury case. To do that, we thoughtfully structure our representation so we get to know the specifics of your case. With this understanding in hand, we then provide you with our honest assessment of your case’s merits.
We gain these specifics by meeting with you, by reviewing medical records, by considering the costs related to medical care for your injury, by looking at your income and by gathering many other facts unique to your case. Only by carefully evaluating all of these circumstances and others can an attorney make a legitimate estimate for you with respect to your case’s worth.
Your employer and its insurance company will fight our evaluation. They are not committed to your best interests; they are committed to their bottom lines. They will therefore attempt to minimize the severity of your injury. They will say you are able to do work you actually cannot do.
Our experienced team will be able to help you understand your legal options in these circumstances. We will help you choose from those options intelligently and wisely. Whether we advise you to negotiate your case, settle or take your case to trial, you will know our experienced attorneys are advising you as to which options best protect your rights.
If you have already received a settlement offer from an employer or insurance company, you want to speak to a worker’s compensation attorney before accepting or rejecting the offer. With the experienced guidance of Brown Paindiris & Scott, LLP, in your corner, you will act in confidence and make an informed choice based on reality, not on any feelings of panic or worry you may be having, particularly if the offer comes with an unreasonably restrictive time limit attached to it.
