Worker’s Compensation, fka Workman’s Compensation, is one of those areas of law that seems to and sometimes does proceed automatically. You ae injured on the job, you are out of work, you receive some medical care, you go back to work. But many injured workers leave a lot on the table and perhaps don’t even realize there are both present and future benefits they may be entitled to. First of all, when injured on the job, someone should file the proper paperwork with the worker’s compensation commissioner. In New London County, encompassing the various towns of Groton, Waterford, Stonington, Norwich, Griswold, Ledyard, Montville, Preston, New London, etc., the proper paperwork has to be filed in Norwich, otherwise substantial RIGHTS COULD BE LOST. Many assume their employer will file the paperwork, but in fact they often don’t. After this, as the matter proceeds, the injured worker may receive some checks for being out of work, and also have their medical bills paid for. What they don’t realize is that there are far more benefits and rights available over and above what they received. They also often don’t realize that they have the right to contest decisions made by their employer regarding their benefits and compensation, and test these decisions before an informal Commissioner without penalty. If you have been injured on the job and feel uncomfortable about what’s going on, give Attorney Mark O. Grater a call at 860-449-8059 or check out his web cite. You won’t regret it.
