Worker's Compensation

Have you been injured at work? The most important thing is your health and well-being. You have the right to receive all necessary and appropriate medical treatments.

First, report your injury to your employer, any delay in reporting your injury increases the chances of a dispute.

File your written notice of claim, using a 30C form (Download PDF) as soon as possible.

Your employer should send you to the company medical facility, medical walk-in facility, hospital, or designated physician for your initial medical treatment. If your employer has a designated medical facility, you must accept the initial treatment.

After the initial treatment, you have the right to choose your attending physician. We specialize in Connecticut workers’ compensation treatment and are on the approved list of medical practitioners of the Workers’ Compensation Commission Chairman. Contact us at (203) 752-3100.

Dissatisfied with your current workers’ compensation treatment?

If at any time, you feel dissatisfied with the care you are currently receiving for your worker’s compensation at another facility, we will gladly treat you. You must follow these steps to change to Center for Orthopaedics:

  • Obtain a referral from your current attending physician to be treated by another physician; or
  • Obtain approval to change physicians from your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier involved (or the employer, if it is self-insured); or
  • Write to the Workers’ Compensation Commissioner in the District Office having jurisdiction, requesting a change of physician and indicating the name, address, and medical specialty of the present physician, the name, address, and medical specialty of a new physician, and the reason(s) for requesting a change (in such event, a Commissioner will reply by mail, indicating his or her decision on the request).
