What is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation benefits may be available to most part-time and full-time employees in Bolton who cannot work as a result of a work-related illness or injury. These benefits may include compensation to cover initial and ongoing medical costs, as well as compensation for lost wages. The Connecticut Workers’ Compensation Act provides three main types of these benefits. These include:
  • Wage Replacement Benefits
  • Reasonable or necessary medical care
  • Compensation for Permanent Injury
The lawyers of Costello, Coombes & Brown, LLP are dedicated to protecting the workers’ compensation rights of Bolton citizens.        
     

Filing a Workers’ Compensation Claim

If you are injured or become in as a result of working at your Bolton occupation, you must first report the incident to your employer, and receive medical attention. Once you have, you must file a Form 30C (notice of claim for compensation), in order to make sure your application is seen. After that, if the insurance wishes to deny your claim, they must submit a Form 43. In the event that they would like to discontinue your benefits, they must file a Form 36. Bolton citizens who miss more than three days of work as a result of the relevant workplace injury, a Voluntary Agreement must be filed and approved by a commissioner.

Common Questions About Workers’ Compensation in Bolton

       
What Should I do If I am Injured at Work?
      You should report the injury to your Bolton employer and receive medical attention as soon as a possible. If you wait too long to report the incident, your claim may be denied.        
What Benefits Am I Entitled To?
      As listed, Bolton residents may be entitled to four types of benefits: compensation for medical bills, payments for disability, a permanent disability settlement (if your injury causes a permanent disability), and vocational rehabilitation (in the event that you cannot return to work, and there is no modified or alternative position available for you).      
Where Are the Hearings Held?
      The following districts are the locations that your hearing may be held: Hartford, New Britain, Middletown, Norwich, New Haven, Waterbury, Bridgeport, and Stamford. The district offices will host both formal and informal hearings that will be held by the commissioner, while the chairman’s office will be host the appeals process held by the Compensation review Board.    
Can I Return to Work After My Injury?
    If you are able to recover and return to your regular work responsibilities, then you are entitled to the next available position. If your injury prevents you from being able to conduct your regular tasks, however, then your Bolton employer can offer you a modified or alternative position. If this is not possible, then your employer may provide vocational rehabilitation benefits.

Common Questions About Social Security Disability in Bolton

       
How Long Does It Take to Receive a Decision on Social Security Disability?
      Receiving a decision on your claim may take anywhere from one month to two years depending on the urgency of your case. More severe cases will be addressed sooner than others.    
What Happens if my Social Security Disability Case is Denied?
      You may handle the appeals process on your own, but if you do not do so within 60 days of the denial, then you may be denied your right at an appeal all together. This means that you would have to start the application process all over again. When you employ the services of Costello, Coombes & Brown, LLP, your appeal will be handled promptly and with care. If the appeal fails, we will bring your claim before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). If you have already received a denial, we recommend seeking legal counsel in order to improve your odds at a successful claim.      
What is the Fee for a Social Security Disability Lawyer?
    We only receive payment if we are successful in earning you benefits. There is no upfront cost to consulting Costello, Coombes & Brown, LLP to handle your claim. There may be additional costs in the event that we need to acquire certain medical information for your case.
