Waterbury Burn Injury Attorney
Representing Burn Victims in Waterbury and Throughout Connecticut
Even though burns are among the most severe and life-altering injuries that a person can suffer, burn injury victims are often encouraged to go back to work quickly. Many employers assume that a burn victim will not be able to do the same work that they did before their injury. This can lead to employers giving burn victims the same tasks as before their injury, but with more pressure and less support.

At Brennan Law Firm, LLC, we understand that burn victims need time to recover and that they should not be expected to go back to work quickly after suffering a burn injury. We also understand that employers are not always reasonable, and we are ready to fight to get you the compensation that you deserve.
