Workers’ Compensation Attorneys in Farmington
What is Workers’ Compensation?If you develop a work-related illness or injure yourself as a result of your job, you may be entitled to benefits. Workers compensation benefits are designed to help cover everyday expenses while an employee is unable to work. 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 ClaimAfter being injured it is important that you first receive any needed medical attention and report this injury to the employer. Then, it is important that you file a Form 30C (notice of claim for compensation) in order to make sure that claim has been seen. An insurance carrier may file a Form 43 when they intend to deny your claim. When the insurance carrier intends to discontinue your benefits, they must file a Form 36. Voluntary Agreements must be filed and approved by a commissioner in cases where an injured worker has missed more than three days of work due to the injury. Costello, Coombes, and Brown LLP helps Farmington clients to ensure that you receive every cent of compensation that you are owed. We’ve been protecting the rights of each one of our clients since 1987 and love doing so.
