How Much Workers' Comp Would You Get If Injured or Killed At Work?
An injured worker could find that a claim he or she filed to secure benefits, is denied. In other situations, the injured worker may not receive all of the money to which they are entitled. When these assessments are incorrect, the employee may seek legal assistance from a lawyer.
Following approval of a benefits claim, the injured worker can select a treating physician and their medical care will be paid for by the workers compensation insurance company. If you lose more than 3 days without working due to injuries or illness, the insurance company will also provide you with temporary disability payments as compensation for your lost wages.
A worker can successfully secure workers' compensation benefits to pay for medical care and lost wages, and he or she will have the financial lifeline required to get through the difficult period following a serious accident.
What Is Connecticut Workers' Compensation And How Does It Work?
Connecticut provides workers' compensation benefits to individuals who have been harmed or injured at or due to their jobs. This compensation includes coverage of medical care, up to 70 percent of lost wages due to recovery time and may also include monetary awards if someone is disabled as a result of their injury.
Before an individual can claim workers' compensation benefits, they must meet certain eligibility requirements. These include having an injury that occurs as a result of their job, but it does not have to take place at their employer's location. For example, individuals injured while travelling for work may still claim benefits. Any claim for workers compensation benefits must be made within one year of the date of injury with certain exceptions.
