If you have been injured at work, you may need the services of a Denver workers compensation attorney. The law requires employers to carry worker’s compensation insurance, and an injury caused by negligence can result in a reduced benefit amount. Moreover, mistakes in the process can make your claim even less likely to be approved. A skilled attorney can help you navigate the complex system and maximize your benefits.
If you’ve suffered an injury on the job and have been unable to return to work for more than four weeks, you may qualify for temporary total disability compensation. You can also qualify for temporary partial disability. This type of claim is available to injured workers who cannot work at all or can return to work part-time with reduced or modified duties. A permanent partial disability is awarded if you cannot work at all for more than one year due to the injury. If the injuries are permanent, you may be eligible for a total disability award.
