How the Workers’ Compensation Process Works

There are many steps involved in the process of filing for workers' compensation in Connecticut, all of which we can help you with at the Law Offices of James A. Welcome.

Generally, the workers' compensation process is as follows:

  • The injured employee must provide his or her employer with notification of the injury. This type of notification is typically provided to the manager. In the event that the injured party is hospitalized, this formal notification can be waived.
  • Upon receiving an employee's notification of injury, the employer is expected to submit a formal report to the state workers' compensation board. At this time, the employer should also notify the workers' compensation insurance carrier.
  • Once the workers' compensation insurance carrier receives notification of the injury, the insurance company can begin paying the employee's medical bills. Part of the payment from the insurance provider should also be a percentage of the injured employee's average income per week. These payments are made through temporary disability checks.

In some cases, the process may be carried out differently, beginning instead with an employee visit to the doctor's office. In such cases, the doctor may ask the employee to fill out a workers' compensation form and the doctor will notify the employer and the insurance company of the injury.

It is important to note that you have a limited amount of time to bring a claim against your employer and you should get in touch with an attorney as soon as possible to make sure you take advantage of this opportunity.
