What is Workers’ Compensation?Typically, most part-time and full-time employees will be covered by Workers’ Compensation benefits. They will help the employee if they are unable to continue working after suffering from an injury on the job or develop a work-related illness or disease. Workers’ Compensation can help cover the employee’s expenses while they are out of work. The Connecticut Workers’ Compensation Act provides three main types of benefits. These include:
- Wage Replacement Benefits
- Reasonable or necessary medical care
- Compensation for Permanent Injury

After being injured at your Cromwell place of business, the first step is to notify your employer and receive any immediate medical attention, and report the injury. Then you must file a Form 30C (notice of claim for compensation) to make sure that your claim has been seen. An insurance carrier can file a Form 43 if they intend to deny your claim. When the insurance carrier intends to stop your benefits, they must file a Form 36.
