Filing A Workers’ Compensation Claim
Most employers in Connecticut are required to provide their employees with coverage should they sustain an injury or illness on the job that affects their ability to work. After you have suffered an injury at work, filing for workers’ compensation coverage is an important first step. Workers’ comp can provide you with wage loss benefits, medical benefits (including treatment, hospital stays and physical therapy) and recovery time.
It is imperative to report your injury to your supervisor right away. While some injuries may be more difficult to immediately realize the extent than others, reporting it as soon as possible can allow for a more efficient process.
