Wage Replacement Benefits

Greater Hartford Lawyers who can get you Wage Replacement Benefits

Costello, Coombes & Brown has been dedicating themselves for over 35 years to help clients in the Greater Hartford area receive the workers’ compensation they need from their employers, which includes any Wage Replacement Benefits you can get from your employer.. Our knowledgeable attorneys are well-versed in the Connecticut Workers’ Compensation Act, and . CC&B Law can be the definitive factor in you getting the Wage Replacement Benefits you need.

What is Connecticut Workers’ Compensation Act?

When an employee is injured or falls ill with a serious disease (such as mesothelioma) at their Greater Hartford workplace, they may be entitled to wage replacement benefits that can help them pay for their medical costs and living expenses while they take time off of working to recover. Ideally you should inform your boss immediately after suffering an injury, and work with your employer to follow their injury care plan so you are more likely to get benefits from the company. If the emergency is pertinent and serious, you may need immediate medical attention which could delay the process of getting any compensation you may receive from your manager. Employers can challenge your application for benefits from the company, however, and can try to argue that you caused the injury through negligence or loopholes to prevent you from getting any possible compensation. That’s where we come in.

Types of Wage Replacement Benefits You May Get

After you are disabled from a Greater Hartford workplace injury or illness, you may be unable to work for either a temporary period of time. Some people may not even work for the rest of their lives due to the circumstances surrounding them. You are only eligible to receive these benefits if you are unable to return to work after a three-day waiting period (the day of incapacitation doesn’t count). If you clear this waiting period and are still unable to return to work, or if your company’s management is spinning its wheels in giving you any compensation, CC&B Law can help you receive the workplace benefits you deserve while you recover. The rates you may receive depend on the type of injury or illness you’ve sustained, the length of time you will be out of work
  • Temporary Total Disability, for people who suffer conditions that will make them completely unable to work like blindness.
  • Temporary Partial Disability, which can differentiate if you are working in a “lower-paying” job or are actively searching for a job.
  • Permanent Partial Disability, typically if a body part has been severed or is otherwise non-functioning for the injured person anymore (such as losing a thumb in a construction accident).
  • Cost of Living Adjustments, which may include Dependent Survivor Benefits.
  • Benefits of a Recurrence or Relapse from Recovery, if the employee returns to work but complications from it force them to go back onto medical leave.
  • Disfigurement and Scarring Benefits
  • Discretionary Wage Differential “308a” Benefits, where an employee has been paid their entire PPD coverage
  • Dependent Survivor Benefits, if your spouse or family needs money in the event of a fatal accident.
More information about the types of benefits you may be entitled to can be found on pages 7-9 of the State of Connecticut Workers’ Compensation Commission’s Information Packet, which can be found here.
