BOARD CERTIFIED WORKERS'
CT Board Certified Workers' Compensation Specialist
Personal Injury Attorney
To become a Board Certified Workers' Compensation Specialist in the State of Connecticut, attorneys must devote a significant amount of their practice handling workers' compensation cases each year.
They must also pass a comprehensive one-day exam, and earn Continuing Legal Education Credits in workers' compensation law and ethics on an annual basis.
Each specialist must also receive recommendations from both lawyers representing injured workers and lawyers who represent insurance companies.
Attorney Santoro is one of only about 50 lawyers in CT who continues to earn these credentials each year.
PERSONAL ATTENTION & RESPECT
Our Approach to Practicing Law
Our philosophy at the Santoro Law Firm is to keep it simple.
We only practice two very specific types of law – workers' compensation and personal injury.
By limiting our practice to these areas, we have developed a set of specific skills and knowledge to represent you most effectively. And you will always be treated with personal attention and respect.
Attorney Santoro will be directly involved in your case from beginning to end. You will not be passed off to a paralegal or associate.
We also pride ourselves in maintaining excellent communication with our clients, whether by in-person meetings, Skype or Zoom calls, emails or telephone calls.
Years of experience have shown us that good communication with clients is the key to every successful attorney-client relationship.

If you've been injured at work and are frustrated with trying to get the compensation and benefits you need, we can help.
There are a number of benefits you may be entitled to claim. These include:
Weekly benefits based on your doctors' determination that you cannot work or must assume light duty tasks
Prescription drug costs
Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) benefits when you are done with treatment. PPD benefits represent the loss of use you have suffered for your injured body or body part/s.
Workers’ compensation claims in Connecticut fall under a different set of laws than personal injury cases, which is why not all personal injury lawyers handle workers’ compensation claims.
The Santoro Law Firm specializes in handling workers’ compensation claims under Connecticut State Law. We also handle workers' compensation claims at Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun Casinos.
If you have been injured because of someone else's negligence, you need an experienced attorney with trial experience to fight for you against the powerful insurance companies.
Personal injury claims include:
Slip and falls
Premises liability accidents
Motorcycle and boating accidents
The Santoro Law Firm has a proven track record of representing victims who have sustained injuries due to the negligence of others.
