What should I know about workers’ comp in CT?

If you’ve been injured at your job in Connecticut, filing a workers’ compensation claim is the next reasonable step. However, this process can seem complex to many people, especially when suffering from the after-effects of your injury. WorkplaceFairness.org offers the following insight on how you can file a claim when hurt at work.

Who can file for workers’ comp in Connecticut?

It doesn’t matter whether you work full or part-time, if you're hurt during the course of work in Connecticut you’re eligible for workers’ comp benefits. Additionally, most employers in the state are required to carry this type of insurance. If your employer has at least one employee, they must offer compensation in the event of an injury.

What kind of compensation can I receive?

If your claim is approved, you can receive benefits for medical costs and lost wages. You may also be eligible for disability benefits, which can be a total or partial disability, as well as permanent or temporary. Other types of benefits cover relapses or occurrences linked to your initial injury, and additional benefits, which are decided on a case-by-case basis.

How does the process work?   

First, you must make your employer aware of the injury you sustained. Next, you must file a 30c form, which is a notice of claim for compensation. Finally, you must request information on the insurance provider that your employer works with when it comes to work injury cases. There is also a deadline to when you can file. You must inform your employer either one year after the injury takes place or three years after the first signs of injury present themselves.
