5 Basic Things That Workers’ Comp Covers

Colorado Workers Compensation Attorney

Will workers’ compensation cover all my medical bills?

Will workers’ compensation cover lost wages?

Does workers’ compensation cover my accident?

If you’re recovering from a workplace accident and need answers about workers’ compensation, Kaufman & Kaufman, LLC. is here for you!

Here are five things workers’ compensation may cover:

1. Medical expenses

Never try to pay your medical bills on your own. All necessary treatments should be covered – from the ambulance ride and the night you spent in the hospital recovering from your injury, to recuperating at home.


2. Rehabilitation costs

If your injury requires physical rehabilitation it should be covered by workers’ compensation.


3. Funeral expenses

When a worker passes away from an injury on the job, workers’ compensation insurance will pay for the cost of the worker’s final expenses and burial services. Every case is different, but you may even qualify for death benefits.


4. Monetary payments

If you can’t make ends meet and are unable to work, you may be able to receive a portion of money you would have earned with workers’ compensation benefits. This money will help you keep the bills paid and allow you to purchase groceries so your family doesn’t have to go hungry.


5. Death benefits

Dependents and spouses of workers who pass away from injuries incurred from a workplace accident may be able to file for death benefits to help cover the breadwinner’s lost income. 

Life after suffering a workplace injury can be frustrating and at times overwhelming, but Colorado workers’ compensation attorneys at Kaufman & Kaufman, LLC. are here to help you with the financial burden you must be feeling.

"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."
