In Colorado, the Workers’ Compensation Act governs the no-fault workers’ compensation system in the state that protects all non-government workers in the event they are injured while working. With the no-fault system, injured workers:

  • Can obtain benefits if they are hurt in the course of performing their job – regardless of whether the workers may have been at fault in any way for causing their injuries
  • Are not allowed to sue their employers when they collect benefits (Workers may, however, be able to sue third parties if these parties caused or contributed to the injuries.)

Because the workers’ compensation system in Colorado can be confusing, particularly when people are trying to recover from serious injuries, it’s important that these people trust their claims in the hands of Colorado Springs Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Kenneth Shakeshaft to:

  • Reduce the chances of unnecessary delays while their claim is being processed
  • Minimize the chances that their claims will be denied and they will have to appeal
  • Give themselves the best chances of obtaining the full amount of benefits they deserve the first time they file their claims.

Colorado Workers’ Compensation Benefits

Under the Colorado Workers’ Compensation Act, injured workers can obtain benefits for their:

  • Medical care, excluding deductibles or co-pays
  • Lost wages, which generally includes benefits that cover 2/3 of a person’s average weekly wages
  • Permanent impairments if the injured worker ends up with some irreversible injuries
  • Disfigurement and/or scarring.

With Colorado workers’ compensation, however, there are some strict rules regarding what doctors people can see, when they can change doctors and what they need to do to obtain benefits when they have reached their maximum medical improvement and are still unable to work. Additionally, it’s important that people are aware of the fact that insurers may try to go to great lengths to undervalue or even deny legitimate workers’ compensation claims.

As a result, injured workers likely need to have an experienced advocate on their side who will look out for their best interests and help them obtain the benefits they deserve. This advocate is Colorado Springs Workers’ Compensation Attorney Kenneth Shakeshaft.
