Workers’ Comp Benefits and Third-Party Claims
The Workers’ Compensation Act of the Connecticut General Statutes provides medical benefits and wage replacement for injured workers. On-the-job injuries and occupational diseases are typically covered by workers’ compensation, even if the worker is at fault.
Workers’ compensation provides compensation for a percentage of the worker’s lost wages, permanent disabilities, impairment of earning capacity and certain types of scarring and disfigurement. It also provides medical benefits for treating the injury/illness and to cover out-of-pocket medical expenses.
If a negligent third party was responsible for your injury, you may be able to collect additional damages in a separate personal injury suit. Third-party suits can provide compensation that is not available under workers’ comp such as pain and suffering or loss of life’s enjoyment.
Even if you do not have health insurance, you can get treatment with workers’ compensation benefits and/or with letters of protection in third-party suits. Do not let lack of insurance prevent you from filing a claim.
