Overview of Colorado Workers’ Compensation Law
According to the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, “Workers' compensation is a type of insurance coverage that employers must provide for their employees. For employees who are injured on the job or develop occupational diseases, this insurance pays for medical expenses and partial wage replacement during periods of temporary disability. It may also provide permanent impairment benefits for those who qualify. The cost of workers' compensation insurance is paid entirely by the employer and may not be deducted from an employee's wages.
Workers' compensation benefits are based on the date of injury. Since the laws change through the years, there may be different benefits depending on when you were injured. If you are injured on the job, you should know that papers need to be filed correctly and within the right number of days. You must follow all rules and procedures or you might not get all the benefits you may be entitled to receive.”
You’re Not Alone!
Believe it or not, many people sustain injuries on the job. Do they report it? They are required to by law, but not all injuries are subject to workers compensation. It usually depends on the severity of your injury, but it’s always best to consult with an attorney about your rights first before automatically assuming you don’t qualify.
Disputes arise every day. What you may qualify for may be different than the next person, however to ensure your rights are protected at all times you may want to consider hiring a professional Colorado workers compensation attorney.
What’s the Benefit of Having an Attorney at Your Side?
An attorney can negotiate on your behalf! Our Colorado workers compensation attorney realizes the importance of your case. We can determine how important factors will affect the value of your case, including:
- How does your injury or illness restrict you from doing day-to-day tasks?
- What is your disability rating?
- Is your disability partial or total?
- Is your disability temporary or permanent?
- How much was your previous salary?
- What will be the costs of past and future medical treatment?
Still think you’re the best person to represent yourself in your workers compensation lawsuit? The answer is “probably not.” Without a lawyer to fight for rights you didn’t know you had, you could miss out on settlement money you’re entitled to.
