Part-time and full-time employees alike are almost always eligible to be covered by workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits may cover the cost of medical bills, lost wages, and ongoing care that may be necessary following a work-related injury or illness.

  • Wage Replacement Benefits
  • Reasonable or necessary medical care
  • Compensation for Permanent Injury

Filing a Workers’ Compensation Claim

Once you have been injured as a result of a workplace injury in Avon, you should first report it to your employer and receive medical attention. Afterwards, you must file a Form 30C (notice of claim for compensation) so that your claim may be viewed. If the insurance wishes to deny your claim, they will file a Form 43. In the event that they want to discontinue your workers’ compensation benefits, they may file a Form 36. Avon citizens that are absent from work for more than three days as a result of a workplace injury, must file a Voluntary Agreement to be approved by a commissioner.
