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
Filing a Workers’ Compensation ClaimIf 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.
