What if My Workers’ Compensation Doctor Isn’t Providing Proper Care?

Workers Compensation Attorney Glenwood Springs

Did your doctor misdiagnose or under-diagnose your injury or illness?

You want the best treatment available so you can get back on your feet again, providing for your family. Kaufman & Kaufman workers’ compensation attorneys in Glenwood Springs will protect your rights and help you navigate the complex legal system.

If a doctor determined that you’ve reached maximum medical improvement (MMI), including whether you have any permanent disabilities, they’ll notify your insurance carrier. If the insurance carrier agrees with your doctor’s evaluation, they’ll file a Final Admission of Liability. You have 30 days after the carrier files the admission to determine if you agree with the MMI determination and the benefits the insurance carrier outlines in the final admission.

Don’t agree with your doctor’s assessment?  

You have the right to request a change of physician in the state of Colorado. The injured worker can switch to another doctor on the list within the first 90 days.

Do you think you’re in need of further medical care? You’ll have 30 days from the date that’s printed on your Final Admission of Liability  to determine if you agree with their determination.

If you don’t agree with this final assessment, you have the right to request a Division Independent Medical Examination (DIME).

"Kaufman and Kaufman was extremely professional in my case. They set appointments as often as I requested which was often weekly or more. They handled all the problems that came up and ended up settling my case for more than I expected. I was very happy with the result."

- Jeff (2015)

"I’ve known the folks at Kaufman and Kaufman for more than 30 years. Correct - I said 30 years. The Kaufman’s have *always* done the right thing, especially when it’s not easy. Trust, in 2022, is hard. Trusting the Kaufman’s, in 2022, is simple."

- Jeff W. (2022)

"Kaufman and Kaufman represented me in a workman’s comp case and I couldn’t be happier with their service. They were very professional and gave me the personal service I was relying on. I hope I never get in that kind of situation again but if I do the Kaufman’s would be the firm I’d call. I highly recommend them."

- Erik (2022)

"Couldn't have asked for a more compassionate and thorough legal representation! Matt was so patient in taking the time to explain everything. The entire staff was incredible. I felt bolstered and validated throughout. I would recommend K&K to anyone going through a dark time with a debilitating injury.. they truly do care about their clients."

- Jessica C. (2022)

"The Kaufmans are a family owned firm that I highly recommend! They have always acted with integrity and intent to help people as best they can. You can trust them and I have dealt with the Kaufmans for a number of years now."

- JB (2022)

"The Kaufman team is very professional and knowledgeable about the work comp laws . They guided me in every step of the process, and if I ever have to do this again , they would be my first call. Without them i wouldn't have been able to pay my bills, and provide for my family. Thanks again to Kaufman and Kaufman for allowing my family to survive."
