Experienced Workers' Compensation Benefits Attorney

At the Law Offices of John Cantarella, LLC, you work directly with a board-certified workers' compensation specialist who handles every aspect of your case. Why is this certification so beneficial for you? It certainly isn't about the accolades.

Workers' compensation laws are very nuanced, from the rules to the exceptions. The process itself is also highly complex. It takes an attorney years to gain the comprehensive knowledge necessary to obtain exceptional results. With this certification and my previous experience working for an insurance company, you can trust that I have the necessary experience.

If you have suffered a serious workplace injury or if an insurance company has denied or delayed your claim, I welcome you to schedule a free initial consultation with me. Just remember 1-800-INJURED. I represent people in the Hartford area and throughout Connecticut.

A Notice Of Injury Is Not The Same Thing As A Notice Of Claim

When you have suffered a workplace injury or illness, you have only a limited window of time in which you can seek the workers' compensation benefits to which you are entitled. You have one year from the date of a specific injury and three years from when you learned about or should have known about an illness or injury that developed over time.

There are exceptions to the statute of limitations and other rules, but you should never rely on these. You should always contact a lawyer as soon as possible to avoid unintended consequences.

The first step on many informational charts says "inform your employer of your injury." This notice to your employer does not constitute a notice of claim. A notice of claim must meet certain legal requirements. Once you file a notice of claim and receive benefits, your claim remains open for life.

When You Ask Who Can Get You Benefits, You Can Trust That John Can

Another benefit of quick action is that you do not have to deal with the stress of trying to handle your claim on your own. The sooner you contact me for a free initial consultation, the sooner I can begin work on your claim. If traveling is a problem for you, I can meet you at home or in the hospital.

You can send me an email any time of the day or night. You can also contact me by calling my office at 860-513-2192.
