Workers’ Compensation Attorneys in Vernon
What is Workers’ Compensation?Both part-time and full-time employees are typically covered by Workers’ Compensation benefits. These benefits can help the employee cover the cost of expenses while they are unable to work due to an injury on the job, or they develop a work-related illness or disease. We are here to help our clients throughout their entire workers’ compensation claim. 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 ClaimLet our dedicated lawyers here at Costello, Coombes & Brown, LLP take on your case and help you receive the compensation that you are entitled to. After you are injured at your Vernon place of business, and have reported the injury to your employer and received any necessary medical attention, your next step is to file a Form 30C (notice of claim for compensation) which ensures that your claim has been seen. An insurance carrier may file a Form 43 if they wish to deny your claim. The insurance carrier must file a Form 36 if they intend to stop your benefits. When an employee misses more than three days of work due to an injury they must file a Voluntary Agreements, which will then need approval from a commissioner
