How Workers’ Compensation Claims Work

The attorneys from Daniels & Scriven, P.C. understand the importance of a positive outcome in your workplace injury claim. Colorado law requires all employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance if they have one or more employees. Workers’ compensation protects employers from lawsuits and provides essential benefits for injured employees; however, powerful insurance companies provide this coverage,  prioritize profits, and commonly dispute claims. No one should take on a legal claim as essential to their family’s well-being as a workers’ compensation claim alone. An experienced work injury lawyer represents your best interests in seeking the following benefits under workers’ compensation laws in Colorado:

  • Medical care and expenses
  • Two-thirds of your standard weekly wages or
  • Two-thirds of the difference between your light-duty pay and standard pay
  • Permanent partial disability pay (PPD)
  • Permanent total disability pay (PTD)
  • Death benefits for the family members of those who suffered fatal work injuries

If you or a family member were injured on the job, you need skilled legal guidance to ensure your family’s protection from financial hardship.

Can I File a Lawsuit After a Workplace Injury?

Workers’ compensation insurance protects employers against lawsuits, making workers’ compensation the only option after most work-related injuries in Colorado. Only under special circumstances, such as egregious actions by an employer, does the state make exceptions. In other cases, a third-party lawsuit may be appropriate; for instance, if an injury resulted from a third party like a subcontractor. Your workplace injury lawyer in Broomfield will evaluate all aspects of your case to determine the best way forward.
