Injured on the job in Colorado? We can help.
If you have been injured at work, then you may find yourself in a highly
difficult position. You might be facing a lengthy period of lost wages
while you take time off to recover, and your injury may have left you
with a permanent disability that will make it impossible to return to
work, let alone being able to enjoy your favorite recreational activities
or go about your daily routine. With proper medical treatment you might
be able to make a full recovery, but how will you be able to afford the
necessary procedures and rehabilitative care? What if you need a wheelchair
or other equipment?
The answers to these questions may be found by understanding your workers'
compensation claim options. A Colorado Springs attorney from our firm
can help you to file a claim for
workers' compensation benefits. Nearly all businesses in Colorado are required by state law to carry
workers' comp insurance to cover their employees in the event of an
injury on the job, so there is a very high likelihood that you are eligible
for benefits. This makes it possible for you to receive any and all treatment
you will require to achieve the maximum medical improvement, as well as
disability benefits to help you support your family. If you have suffered
an injury that has left you with a serious scarring from cuts or burns,
if you can now walk only with a limp, or if you have suffered a crushed
or severed limb, then you may additionally be able to claim disfigurement
benefits of as much as $8,000.
