    Christopher’s Answer

    Unlawful discharge is a very complicated issue and depends on many factors, including the specifics of your injury, past employment record, employer labor needs and your physical capacity to continue to perform such work. However, you should definitely pursue a Workers Comp claim in connection with your injury. The longer you wait, the more difficult it becomes. How long ago were you incurred? My office regularly handles a large number of these claims. It is definitely in your best interest to contact a Connecticut Workers Compensation attorney as soon as possible to get more information.

    Christopher’s Answer

    I would definitely make sure you report the injury as soon as possible, bypassing your manager if necessary. Typically, you will initially be evaluated by Concentra, Walk In, etc. and then will be able to choose a treating orthopaedist if the injury warrants future treatment, which is likely more appropriate than treatment with a chiropractor. Above all, you should consult with a local attorney who is experienced and regularly practices in the area of Workers' Compensation for further guidance and representation.

    Christopher’s Answer

    You unfortunately need to know where the defendant lives to make proper service. There are ways to find this information. I would like to get more details, but would be more than happy to discuss further.

  • Can the state of CT go after an estate for public assistance provided for the deceased from 1968-1981?

    I am the executor of my mothers estate and received a $30,000 bill from the Department of Administrative services for public assistance provided from 1968-1981. Is there a statute of limitation ? Can this be negotiated?

    Christopher’s Answer

    I recently encountered this issue. The AG's office typically pursues claims aggressively and any attorney pursuing this claim will be an expert that does nothing but this kind of work. However, the good news is that the statutes provide limitations as to how much can be taken and you may be able to negotiate some kind of deal.

    "I had a lawsuit in Connecticut that I'm told that was settled however I never signed any documents nor did I receive any money.

    Christopher’s Answer

    Feel free to contact me if you want to further discuss. I realize it might be uncomfortable to put all the details on a board of lawyers answering questions. Its also hard to really get a sense of the situation and what kind of help you need without knowing more.

    Christopher’s Answer

    The good news is that if her income increases about the minimum threshold for any given pay period, you will receive funds for that period. You may want to consider a bank execution as well, although its unlikely that someone earning that amount will have significant funds in a bank account. However, a judgment is valid for 20 years.

    Christopher’s Answer

    It's technically an asset subject to the Court's discretion in dividing the assets and liabilities of the parties. However, what will actually happen depends on many factors and is complex beyond the scope of an answer here.
