Chapter 568 of the Worker’s Compensation Act guarantees continuing income, medical care, and beneficiary benefits for anyone injured on the job in the State of Connecticut. While the law is quite clear about your rights for on the job injuries, your employer or their insurance company may not be as accommodating as the law requires. If that happens, Costello, Brennan and DeVidas, P.C., can help.
While the Worker’s Compensation Act is in place to help employees, there are a number of legal technicalities that can affect your claim. And, no matter how accommodating your employer may be, the majority of claims are not decided by your employer. Insurance companies interested in saving money often make the decisions.
Attorneys on Your Side
At Costello, Brennan and DeVidas, P.C. we provide you with the information to make the right choices so that you can receive the best medical care, benefits, and income. When injured in a workplace accident, sustains an occupational illness, or suffers the job-related aggravation of an existing condition, you may be eligible for Worker’s Compensation. These benefits, again, include medical benefits, wage loss benefits, disability benefits, and death benefits.
However, an employer’s insurance provider may deny the compensability of a worker’s claim, leaving the injured employee without justifiable benefits. Nevertheless, the Worker’s Compensation insurance companies are not the ultimate decision-makers regarding benefits eligibility. Instead, the final authority lies with the State of Connecticut Worker’s Compensation Commission.
