Workers' Compensation

When a Work-Related Injury Occurs: Notify your Supervisor of your injury and go to American Family Care (AFC Urgent Care). For services outside of AFC business hours, please go to the nearest hospital emergency room.

The Workers' Compensation Act (Chapter 568 of the Connecticut General Statutes) was first enacted in 1913. There have been numerous changes to the Act since that time, but the main premise of the Act has always been to provide wage replacement and other benefits, as well as medical treatment, for those employees who have been injured, disabled, or killed while performing their jobs. The Act also sets up an administrative system to provide for workers' compensation benefits by creating the Workers' Compensation Commission (WCC) as the agency to administer the provisions of the Act.

Please utilize the documents provided on this page as guides for steps to follow for a workers' compensation claim. Please refer to the State of Connecticut WCC for further information. Rocky Hill belongs to the 8th district located at:
90 Court Street
Middletown, CT 06457

The State of Connecticut Workers' Compensation Commission has an Information Packet (PDF) which includes detailed information about the typical flow of a case as well as information on how to file a claim and an overview of the Workers' Compensation Act.
