Workers Compensation

Workers’ compensation benefits are available to employees and other covered individuals who sustain injuries that arise out of and in the course of their employment.  The Connecticut Workers’ Compensation Act provides three main types of benefits: 1) wage replacement benefits; 2) reasonable and necessary medical care and 3) compensation for permanent injury.  The statute does not provide for pain and suffering.  Other benefits include: mileage reimbursement; limited scarring benefits; reimbursement for your time while receiving medical treatment in certain situations and cost of living adjustments (COLA’s) in certain situations.
