Workers' Compensation Appellate Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


AC41237 - Brocuglio v. Thompsonville Fire District #2 (Heart and Hypertension Act (sec. 7-433c); notice of claim (sec. 31-294c (a)) “The defendant claims that the board improperly affirmed the commissioner’s award because the plaintiff’s heart disease claim was not timely filed pursuant to General Statutes § 31-294c (a), and § 7-433c (a) does not allow a claimant to file more than one claim for heart disease. We conclude that because the plaintiff failed to file a claim in 2000 when he was first informed by a medical professional that he had heart disease, the claim he filed for heart disease in 2013 is jurisdictionally barred. We, therefore, reverse the decision of the board.”)
