Reimbursement for Time Lost For Medical Treatment
Claiming Money For The Time You Lose At Appointments
Under Connecticut workers’ compensation law, your employer is responsible for paying for the time associated with your receipt of medical treatment for any work-related injuries. This means that you may be eligible to receive money for the time you spend in therapy sessions, physician appointments and other types of treatment.
At the law firm of D’Agosto & Howe, LLC, our lawyers are highly knowledgeable about reimbursement for time lost for medical treatment in Connecticut workers’ compensation cases. With more than 40 years of combined legal experience, we know what it takes to maximize our clients’ claims. One of our attorneys is also a former insurance defense lawyer, so he thoroughly understands the other side.
How Reimbursement Claims Work
You will not be eligible for reimbursement if you are already receiving workers’ compensation payments. However, if you have returned to work, your workers’ comp benefits have ended and you are still being treated for your injury, you can be reimbursed for lost time. Your employer will be required to pay you at your normal hourly rate for any treatment you attend during or after work hours. This includes travel time to and from appointments.
If your employer is refusing to pay for your lost time, our law firm can help you file for a hearing before the Connecticut Workers’ Compensation Commission to resolve the dispute.
