CRB Says, "No" To 31-312 lost time payments while on PPD
In Dellarocco vs. Town of Old Saybrook, a Compensation Review Board opinion released January 27, 2009, the CRB has held that a claimant may not collect "lost time" payments pursuant to Section 31-312 while collecting permanent partial disability (PPD) benefits at the same time. This decision is squarely in line with the longstanding notion that one cannot "double dip" and collect two benefits for the same period of lost time.
Hopefully no one is surprised by this one.
