What is Workers’ Compensation?If you are injured or develop a work-related illness while working at a full or time position and are unable to continue working as a result, you may be entitled to benefits. These are called workers compensation benefits and are designed to help cover the cost of expenses while the employee is unable to 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
Filing a Workers’ Compensation ClaimAfter you are injured at your Glastonbury workplace, you must first report this injury to the employer and receive any needed medical attention. 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. When you come to Costello, Coombes, and Brown LLP in Glastonbury, we’ll work to protect your rights. We will fight to make sure that you receive every cent that you are owed. 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.
