Workers’ Compensation Benefits in Connecticut
Our Hartford Workers’ Comp Lawyers Can Help You Seek Maximum Benefits
Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system, meaning that workers who sustain on-the-job injuries are able to recover benefits without having to prove that negligence played a role in their injuries. However, because it is a no-fault system, employees who file for workers’ compensation are only entitled to receive certain benefits. Additionally, filing a workers’ compensation claim waives your right to sue your employer.

In Connecticut, workers’ compensation covers all “reasonable and necessary” medical treatments and their associated expenses. Essentially, any medical care you receive, including everything from initial emergency treatment to prescription medications, as a result of your work-related injury should be covered by workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation also reimburses you for any expenses you incur traveling to and from doctors’ appointments, such as mileage or public transportation costs.
If your employer’s insurance provider is refusing to cover all of your work-related medical expenses, claiming that they are not “reasonable or necessary,” contact our Hartford workers’ compensation lawyers to learn how you can appeal your denied claim.
