Workers’ Compensation Attorneys in Newington
What is Workers’ Compensation?The majority of employees will be covered by Workers’ Compensation benefits regardless if they are part-time or full-time. A Newington employee may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits if they are injured on the job or develops a work-related illness or disease and are not able to fulfill the requirements of their job position. The benefits help cover expenses and other costs while the employees are 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 ClaimYou must file a Form 30C (notice of claim for compensation) to make sure that your claim has been seen, after you are injured at your Newington place of business, reported the injury to your employer and received medical attention. An insurance carrier may file a Form 43 if they want to deny your claim, and file a Form 36 when they intend to discontinue your benefits if they think that is necessary. If an injured worker has missed three or more days of work due to the injury, Voluntary Agreements must be filed and approved by a commissioner.
