The details of workers' compensation

Not only can work-related injuries be costly and permanent; such incidents can lead to a whole new set of legal obstacles with a company. Employees in Connecticut experience an overall higher rate of work-related injuries, and the damages and fees that occur can differ depending on the accident.

As tragic as some cases may be, the state of Connecticut enforces the Workers' Compensation Act to protect those injured on the job. The State of Connecticut Workers' Compensation Commission is a no-fault system of insurance with the benefits paid by an employer's workers' compensation insurance coverage. The Commission addresses worker's compensation claims and sees that all involved are treated as fairly as possible. Some of the types of workers' compensation benefits include:

  • Medical treatment
  • Temporary total disability
  • Temporary partial disability
  • Permanent partial disability
  • Relapse or recurrence

Workplace Fairness is an organization that also helps to protect those who have experienced work-related accidents, and offers free access to information about workers' rights. Workplace Fairness states that all employees are covered by the Connecticut Workers' Compensation Act upon the first day of employment. If an individual suffers an injury or is suffering from an occupational disease or illness, Workplace Fairness points toward the necessary steps in filing a complaint. Employees must immediately report an injury to the employer, file a "30c" form and ask the employer for information regarding the employer's insurance provider. Written notification of the injury can also save time and complications when moving forward in legal procedures. The more prompt and thorough the claim is upon injury, the better the compensation conditions can be for an employee.
