Workers’ Compensation Attorneys in New Britain
What is Workers’ Compensation?Workers’ Compensation benefits are usually available to most part-time and full-time employees in the event of a work-related injury, illness, or disease. These benefits can help cover the cost of medical bills, lost wages, and any necessary ongoing care that you may need in the event of such an accident. 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 ClaimIf you have suffered a work-related injury at your occupation in New Britain, it is important to immediately report the injury, and receive medical attention. Following these actions, if you would like to receive workers’ compensation benefits, you must file a Form 30C (notice of claim for compensation) in order to ensure your claim is visible. In the event that an insurance carrier wants to deny your claim, or discontinue your benefits, they may file a Form 43, or Form 36, respectively. If a New Britain citizen has missed more than three days of work as a result from a workplace injury, a Voluntary Agreement must be filed and approved by a commissioner.
