The news yesterday told a story of a Connecticut Transit bus driver who was attacked by an irate passenger while simply trying to complete his route. Sadly, Workplace assaults are for more common than you might think. Every day, transit workers, nurses, teachers and paraprofessionals, as well as social workers and convenience store attendants sustain injury when they are attacked while just doing their job. The Connecticut Workers Compensation system stands ready to help these folks with wage replacement, medical treatment and a host of other benefits. The procedure for filing a claim is no different that instituting any other Connecticut workers compensation claim. That is, the injured worker, or their attorney, properly serves a Form 30C on the employer and the District office having jurisdiction other the location where the injury occurred. From there, the process proceeds in due course. Please be aware an injured worker in Connecticut typically has one year from the date of injury to bring their claim.
