Workers’ Compensation Attorneys in Canton
What is Workers’ Compensation?Most Canton citizens who work part-time or full-time, and are injured or become ill as a result of their occupation, may be entitled to workers’ compensation. The benefits provided from a successful claim may include coverage for initial and ongoing medical expenses, as well as reimbursement 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 ClaimAny Canton citizen who is injured or becomes ill as a result of a workplace incident must first report it to their employer, and receive medical attention. Following that, if one wishes to file a claim, they must submit a Form 30C (notice of claim for compensation) to be seen. If the insurance wants to deny your claim, they will file a Form 43. If they want to stop your benefits, the insurance will file a Form 36. A Voluntary Agreement must be filed for review and approval by a commissioner in the event that a workplace injury results in absence from three or more days of work.
