Permanent Total Disability Benefits – Sustaining you for the Long Term

Colorado workers’ comp lawyer R. Mack Babcock helps you obtain permanent total disability benefits if you’re injuries prevent you from working at all

After a period of regular doctor’s appointments and medical procedures aimed at treating your workplace injuries, doctors will decide your condition has stabilized, moving you into the next phase of the Colorado workers’ compensation process. Statutes in Colorado require an injured worker receive compensation for permanent impairment based on the severity of their injuries.

If the severity of your injuries prevents you from holding any kind of job, you are considered permanently and totally disabled. In this case, workers’ compensation laws dictate you receive 2/3 of your average weekly wage for either the rest of your life or until you are no longer permanently and totally disabled.

Workers’ compensation insurers in Colorado and elsewhere sometimes try and deny injured workers like you these necessary benefits. Without them, you would certainly be put in a very tough position of relying on your family or even worse.

Colorado workers’ compensation lawyer R. Mack Babcock understands the challenges injured workers have in obtaining their benefits

It’s a known fact – if a judge examining your injuries and condition declares they are too severe for you to be able to work at all, you qualify to receive permanent total disability benefits.

The judge reviewing your case will also take into account your current skills, education, training, etc. and examine whether there are any vocational opportunities available in your job market before making their final call. Workers’ comp insurers may offer vocational re-training options to you but they rarely, if ever do.

Even though you will not receive your full pre-injury wage, permanent total disability benefits will provide you with an important lifeline to maintain yourself for however long you need to.

If you’re experiencing problems in obtaining the maximum permanent total disability benefits allowed under Colorado law, contact Denver workers’ compensation attorney R. Mack Babcock at the Babcock Law Firm for a free consultation.
