Can I Return To Work After I Settle My Workers Compensation Claim

Posted by James Aspell | Jul 31, 2023 | 0 Comments

If you've been injured due to someone's negligence or intentional act, you can seek workers' compensation by filing a Connecticut workers compensation claim.  Keep in mind that a lot of workers comp insurance carriers only agree to a settlement if you resign. This is because they claim that returning to work could mean that the insurer may have to pay for another workplace injury that's already covered by the settlement. In most cases, in order to return to work, you have to accept a stipulated award.

stipulated award allows you to return to work with the assurance that any future medical expenses from your previous injury will be covered. This type of payment relationship can continue for the rest of your life. Furthermore, if the costs of your future medical care increase, the insurer will take care of it. However, you may have to reopen your claim in a situation like this.

No matter what the work injury entails, it can potentially have long-term emotional and financial effects on not only you but your loved ones as well.
