What Is Workers' Compensation?

If you are injured in a car accident, by slipping and falling, by a medical personnel error, or in some other way, you will likely have to file a personal injury claim with the responsible party’s insurance in order to receive financial compensation. However, a workplace injury is different. The law requires that employers hold workers' compensation insurance policies, so you must file with your employer’s insurance for work comp benefits. 

Workers’ compensation insurance is a protection to both employers and their workers when someone is injured at work or develops a work-related health condition. The employee can receive a quick payout without having to sue the employers. In fact, employees typically can’t sue their own employers for their injuries, so the employers are protected from the expense of a lawsuit. 

The amount of coverage varies from state to state. The following are some expenses workers' compensation may cover after your accident in Danbury, Connecticut:

 

  • Medical bills: This can include coverage of doctors’ appointments, hospital visits, surgeries, rehabilitation, therapy, and medications.
  • Disability payments: This is often referred to as Temporary Total Disability (TTD) and provides workers with payment for lost wages due to a work-related injury. Under this arrangement, workers receive two-thirds of their typical wages until a doctor gives them the all-clear to return to work. 
  • Career training: In some cases, a workplace injury may be so severe that it prevents you from returning to your normal job duties and you may qualify for vocational rehabilitation. In addition to being re-trained for a new occupation, you may also receive job search counseling. 

 

Important Steps to Take After Your Danbury Workplace Injury 

You can ensure a successful work comp claim by taking the following steps.

 

  • Report the injury or illness: Workers’ compensation claims are time-sensitive in Connecticut, so it’s in your best interests to notify your boss or employer of the injury as soon as possible. Your employer should have you fill out a form reporting the accident or illness. Try to be as thorough as possible when documenting the incident. Record as many details as you can remember, even if they seem irrelevant, and include the names of any witnesses to the accident. Workers’ compensation forms are all too often denied due to a lack of detail in the accident report. 
  • Seek medical treatment: Under Connecticut state law, an employee has the legal right to choose his or her own medical practitioner after one initial visit with the employer’s designated doctor if there is one. Tell the doctor that the accident or illness occurred at your place of employment. If the doctor says that you are unfit to return to work at this time, request that this be put down in writing. 
  • Contact a Danbury workers' compensation attorney: If you were injured on the job, you may be feeling overwhelmed and uncertain of what to do next. The attorneys at our law firm are up to date on Connecticut’s regulations and can help you navigate the legal complexities of workers’ compensation claims.

Why Hire a Workers’ Compensation Attorney?

Unfortunately, filing a workers' compensation claim isn’t always the straightforward and simple process that it should be. Paperwork may be filed incorrectly or not on time, your employer or insurance company may deny your claim, or a number of other complications could arise. When you have a lawyer on your side working for you, you’ll have the peace of mind that you’re not being taken advantage of by greedy insurance companies.
