Bellenot & Boufford, LLC
Connecticut Lawyers for Workers’ Compensation Settlements
Have you been injured at work? Does it feel like your workers’ compensation case is not progressing as you would like? Are you considering a workers’ compensation settlement?
Workers’ compensation settlements require sophisticated planning and negotiation. It is important to work with an experienced Newtown attorney for workers’ compensation settlements who can help you through the process.
A lawyer from Bellenot & Boufford, LLC, can help you through every stage of negotiation in a workers’ compensation settlement:
Calculating settlement range: Most people without legal experience do not have the knowledge to obtain an accurate calculation of long-term workers’ compensation benefits. We will use our more than 50 years of combined experience to help you determine what your case is worth.
Negotiating with your insurance company: Once we determine a range of values for your workers’ compensation benefits, we will go to the insurance company with a number and begin negotiating for the highest reasonable value.
Calling for a hearing with the commissioner: In some cases, we suggest a hearing with the workers’ compensation commissioner if we are having a difficult time reaching settlement with the insurance company. This hearing does not end the settlement negotiations, but it may provide a settlement recommendation that helps bring the parties closer together in the negotiations.
Finalizing your settlement: Once the settlement has been reached, we will help with all of the administrative details. We will make sure the agreement is legal and binding, and we will make sure Medicare is in agreement with the settlement. We will also help you minimize the offset that will reduce your SSDI benefits so that you maximize the compensation you receive.
At Bellenot & Boufford, LLC, we represent clients in Fairfield and New Haven counties and the surrounding areas of Connecticut in workers’ compensation settlements. With more than 50 years of combined legal experience, we can provide you with sound legal counsel and representation.
