Types of Workers' Compensation Benefits in Colorado

The Colorado workers' compensation benefits attorneys at Flaxman Law Group have worked with many Denver workers and with injured employees across the state. There are many types of workers' compensation benefits in Colorado and we work to make sure employees who are injured get the right benefits for them.

While the workers' compensation system aims to provide support and protection to injured workers, many workers need support from a Colorado workers' compensation benefits lawyer to get their rightful benefits.

If you've been injured in any workplace in Colorado, know that you can always call our Denver offices at 970-999-0530 for a free, no obligation consultation to discuss your specific situation.

What Types of Workers' Compensation Benefits in Colorado Might You Qualify For?

Workers' compensation is a no-fault insurance system, meant to provide benefits to workers who are injured on the job or who suffer a work-related illness. Depending on your specific situation, if you're injured on the job, you may qualify for the following:

Medical Benefits

In Colorado, these cover reasonable and necessary medical treatments related to work-related injury or illness. These benefits include doctor visits, hospitalizations, surgeries, prescription medications, physical therapy, and rehabilitation services.

It's important to note that some workers in Colorado face challenges when seeking medical benefits. Employers and their insurance companies may claim a medical treatment is not necessary or may claim an injury was not eligible for benefits. To ensure you receive the appropriate medical care and that all your medical expenses are covered, consult with an experienced Colorado workers' compensation benefits lawyer, who can build a strong case, proving your eligibility for medical benefits.

Temporary Disability Benefits

If your work-related injury or illness prevents you from working temporarily, you may be eligible for temporary disability benefits. These benefits provide compensation for a portion of your lost wages during your recovery period.

Temporary Total Disability (TTD) benefits are available if you are unable to work at all, while Temporary Partial Disability (TPD) benefits may apply if you can return to work but with restrictions that affect your earning capacity.

Permanent Disability Benefits

The extent of your disability determines the type of permanent disability benefits you may receive. Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) benefits are available if you have a permanent impairment but can still work in some capacity. Permanent Total Disability (PTD) benefits may be awarded if your injury or illness renders you permanently unable to work.

Death Benefits

In tragic cases where a work-related injury or illness leads to the death of a worker, Colorado's workers' compensation system provides death benefits to the surviving dependents. These benefits may include income replacement for dependents, representing 66.6% of the deceased worker's average weekly wages. These benefits can help grieving families pay the bills and pay for funeral expenses.

Contacting a Colorado Workers' Compensation Benefits Attorney

There are many types of workers' compensation benefits in Colorado and in an ideal world, every hard-working Colorado employee who is injured would get their benefits in a timely way. In reality, insurance companies and employers have a financial incentive to keep their costs low, and sometimes this means workers struggle to get the benefits they need. This is why working with an experienced Colorado workers' compensation benefits lawyer is important.
