Understanding the Workers' Compensation Process
The majority of workers' compensation claims are resolved at the Workers' Compensation Commission by way of an informal conference. Many informal conferences take place over the course of many months or even years in the handling of a particular case. When an agreement cannot be worked out informally, formal hearings can be held.
At a formal hearing all of the following take place:
- Evidence is presented and witnesses testify.
- The Workers' Compensation Commissioner then makes rulings based on findings of facts and conclusions of law.
- The commissioner's ruling may then be appealed to the Compensation Review Board, which sits in Hartford, Connecticut. The Compensation Review Board is made up of three rotating workers' compensation commissioners.
- The decision is then upheld, reversed, or remanded for further consideration.
- The case may then be appealed to the State of Connecticut Appellate Court.
Complex work-related accidents often have overlapping Social Security disability benefit offset issues and Medicare set-aside trust requirements. Our office can analyze, review, and draft documents to properly address these issues as legally required. On some occasions, we have been able to negotiate full waivers of workers' compensation liens. This often allows our clients the opportunity to prosecute third-party actions without having to pay money back to the workers' compensation insurance carrier upon recovery against the liable third party.
