4 Tips For Filing Your Workers' Compensation Claim, Groton, Connecticut

If you're injured in the course of performing your job duties, workers' compensation insurance is there to help pay for your medical expenses and lost wages, but filing a claim involves navigating a complex process that many find extremely difficult without professional help. Mark O. Grater Attorney at Law, a workers' compensation and personal injury attorney in Groton, CT, has some tips for ensuring that you get the compensation you deserve.

  • Report Your Injury Immediately: In most states, you have only a very short window of time to report your injury. Of course, this applies mostly to accident-related injuries. If you're filing a claim for a repetitive-use injury, you can seek medical attention first.
  • Seek Medical Attention: Without evidence from your medical professional, it's very unlikely that your claim will be accepted. Have a doctor look at your injury as soon as possible so they can prove that your injury is work-related.
  • Know Your Rights: Many types of injuries are covered under workers' compensation, including auto accidents and those that occur off-site. If you're unsure whether you might have a claim, contact Mark O. Grater, who will answer all of your questions.
