How does the system in Colorado work?
Kaufman & Kaufman, LLC. is here to help you when the insurance company gives you a hard time about recovering your earned benefits. Benefits you could be entitled to include:
1. You’re entitled to payment of medical bills related to a workplace injury
The workers’ compensation system will pay most medical costs associated with injuries that you experienced while on the job.
2. You are also entitled to a financial award
If your workers’ compensation claim is approved, you may be entitled to recover 2/3 of your average weekly wage tax free up to a state maximum while recovering from your injuries.
3. It may be possible to obtain benefits after returning to work
It’s not uncommon for employees to be given light duty assignments when they return to work. In general, you’re paid less to perform tasks such as sweeping floors, answering phones or sorting mail. Therefore, you may still be eligible to obtain workers’ compensation benefits while on the job.
