Workers’ Compensation Attorneys in East Granby
What is Workers’ Compensation?Workers’ Compensation benefits will be able to cover the majority of full-time and part-time employees hired by a company. Typically these benefits come after an employee is unable to work for an extended period of time due to a work-related illness, disease or injury. When someone receives these benefits, they will be able to cover medical and living expenses as they recover. 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
Filing a Workers’ Compensation ClaimYou must file aForm 30C, a notice of claim for compensation, to make sure your claim has been seen after you have reported your work-related injury to your East Granby place of business and received the medical attention your problem may require. AForm 43 may be filed when an insurance carrier wants to deny your claim, and will file a Form 36 if they want to discontinue your benefits entirely.
