The Colorado Workers’Compensation Statute and law has been continuously changing each year, and rarely have these changes worked to the benefit of the employee who was injured at work.
You should not rely upon your employer or its insurance carrier to the “right thing” in your Workers’ Comp claim. The laws affecting compensation of an injured workman are extremely complex and the procedures contain strict time limits and requirements that could drastically affect the uninformed worker.
You may be faced with Workman’s Comp issues such as your right to temporary wage benefits (Temporary Total Disability – TTD), medical benefits, permanent impairment or disability (Permanent Partial Disability – PPD or even Permanent Total Disability – PTD). Your employer may choose your physician and even then require an independent medical examination. You may feel that you are being run in circles by the demands of the Workers Compensation Insurance Carrier. An experienced workmen’s compensation lawyer will guide you through the confusion.
Even if your case appears to be proceeding smoothly, you owe it to yourself and your family to seek the advice of an experienced attorney to more fully understand and protect your rights and ensure that you are fully compensated for your job-related injury.
