Spinal Cord Injuries and Permanent Disability
Are you suffering from a spinal cord injury? Do you worry about providing for your family in the future? Spinal cord injuries can cause permanent disability, which in turn can completely alter your life.
At Kaufman & Kaufman, LLC., we’ll ensure your rights are protected and make sure you’re well taken care of for the future so you and your family won’t have to worry.
Depending on the severity, whether you’ll suffer a permanent disability from a spinal cord injury may not be known for some time. When an injury is suffered on-the-job, the workers’ compensation system is there to provide benefits such as coverage for medical and medical-related expenses. Compensation for lost income, temporary or permanent disability and other benefits may also be available to you and your family.
What if you can’t return to work? What happens then?
If you’re unable to perform your regular work function, you could be eligible for additional worker’s compensation benefits in Colorado. Insurers may provide disability benefits for a workers’ compensation settlement if you have some type of permanent disability. Attorneys at our firm will fight for your right to claim your settlement – over a period of time, or in a lump-sum payment.
Denied workers compensation benefits?
Colorado's workers' compensation laws protect injured employees or workers who acquire a work-related disease or illness. If the system unfairly denies you the benefits you believe you’re entitled to, contact a Colorado workers' compensation attorney to discuss your rights.
