People often ask “How much am I going to get? What am I entitled to?” and the answer is a little complicated but not something that we can’t figure out for you. Essentially, Connecticut law says that your employer needs to take your average wage, or average weekly wage, over the 52-week period prior to the injury. Once they have that average, we look at a set of tables. We see what your tax withholding are and in general terms, benefits are based on your net pay after taxes and then 75% of that net benefit will be your approximate weekly compensation rate. As I said, it’s a bit complex but we can walk you through it and we’ll figure out exactly what you’re entitled to and make sure that the insurance company and your employer will give every dime that you deserve.
