Workers' Compensation Law Supreme Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


SC19937 - Brennan v. Waterbury (“In this appeal, we consider whether heart and hypertension benefits under General Statutes § 7-433c for permanent disability properly are paid to a deceased claimant’s estate if such benefits vested and were payable (‘‘matured’’) during the claimant’s lifetime but were not paid to the claimant before his death. In particular, we are asked to consider whether Morgan v. East Haven, 208 Conn. 576, 546 A.2d 243 (1988), and the legislative response to that decision, instead requires payment of such benefits to the claimant’s dependents or nondependent children.”)
