If you’ve suffered a workplace injury, you need to make healing your first priority. If you’re worried about the additional stresses of mounting medical bills and lost days at work, it can be challenging to focus on your health. We can handle the burden of seeking the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled. At The Reinken Law Firm, our skilled legal team is fully equipped to assist you in the preparation of every aspect of your workers’ compensation claim.
Most employers in Connecticut are required to carry workers’ compensation coverage, which provides benefits to workers who have been injured on the job. If you suffered an injury while performing your job duties, and your employer has workers’ compensation coverage, then you may be eligible to claim workers’ compensation.
There are a number of workers’ compensation benefits that may be available to you, such as compensation for your medical expenses and lost wages. You may also be entitled to disability benefits. If you have been injured while at work, it is important that you file a workers’ compensation claim as soon as possible after your accident, or you could lose the right to make a claim.
You may be asking yourself, “Do I have a workers’ compensation case?” If you were injured at work while you were performing the duties of your job, and your employer carries workers’ compensation coverage, the answer is most likely “yes.” To be certain, speak with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney who can discuss the circumstances of your case with you and help you determine if you have a valid workers’ compensation claim.
Settlement of your workers’ compensation case means you and the insurance company that provides coverage for your employer have agreed on a dollar amount for your injuries. In return for this payment, you give up your right to further benefits. The terms of the settlement are put into a written agreement. The decision to enter into a settlement agreement should not be taken lightly, because you give up the right to any additional compensation. If you are considering a settlement agreement with your employer’s insurance company, be sure to consult with an experienced workers’ comp attorney to properly and fully protect your rights.
