What is Workers’ Compensation?Workers’ Compensation benefits can be utilized by both part-time and full-time employees in most cases. If a Simsbury employee finds themselves unable to work after experiencing a work-related illness or disease, or is injured on the job, they are entitled to their workers compensation benefits. These benefits can help them maintain their normal lives and expenses while 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 ClaimHere at Costello, Coombes & Brown, LLP we have experienced lawyers ready to take on your case and fight for your rights, we are ready to help you receive the compensation that you are owed. If you are injured at your Simsbury place of business, receive medical attention and report the injury to your employer, then file a Form 30C (notice of claim for compensation) to make sure the claim has been viewed. An insurance carrier can file a Form 43 if they want to deny your claim. When the insurance carrier chooses to cease your benefits, they must file a Form 36. Voluntary Agreements need to be filed after an employee is out of work for more than three days due to the injury, and are to be approved by a commissioner.
