The Experience You Need To Achieve The Successful Case Results You Deserve.

Essential information for Connecticut workers' comp applicants

Imagine the hammer slips and you smash your finger while working at a construction site. Depending on the severity of that injury, you might not be able to do your job for a while. You'll also need expensive medical treatments.

Fortunately, you're in luck. In most cases, injured workers can get the medical care they need, get money to pay for it, and even get money to pay for their time spent out of work. However, in order to get these benefits, you will need to file a claim for workers' compensation.

Connecticut workers' compensation: What you need to know

Here are some essential facts that every Connecticut workers' compensation benefits applicant needs to know:

  • Workers' compensation will pay almost all employees for the costs of their medical care -- even non-citizens, minors and part-time workers. It doesn't matter the size of the business you worked for or what kind of job you did in most cases.
  • It doesn't matter if you're to blame for your injury. Maybe you forgot to clean up the floor and you slipped on wet paint. Maybe you climbed up on the last rung of the ladder. If you got hurt while performing your job duties, you can likely qualify for workers' compensation.
  • Workers' compensation, if you qualify, will pay for medical care related to injuries or diseases contracted as a result of employment. It will also pay for vocational rehab, treatments for disfigurement and scarring, compensation for permanent impairment, weekly benefits for disabled persons and more.
  • Your employer cannot make you enter into an agreement -- intentionally or unintentionally -- which denies you of your right to workers' compensation benefits.
  • You might suffer a denial of benefits if your injuries happened because you were drunk or intoxicated on the job.

Are you ready to get the benefits you deserve?

It's important for injured employees to apply for workers' compensation benefits as quickly as possible. If they fail to apply within a specific timeframe, they might be forever denied the benefits they deserve. Finally, it's also important that workers apply for their benefits in the right way, by providing adequate supporting documentation to ensure that they get the maximum amount of benefits for which they can qualify.
