Acquiring your Colorado Temporary Partial Disability Benefits

Denver workers' compensation attorney R. Mack Babcock helps ensure you are able to maintain your income during treatment for an on-the-job injury

Colorado's workers' compensation laws state that an injured worker is entitled to certain wage loss benefits during the course of their treatment if they are unable to fully perform their job duties. If you are able to still work but not at your pre-injury level and pay, temporary partial disability benefits help make up the difference between your reduced salary and what you were making before.

The sad truth is that many Colorado workers' compensation insurers try to abrogate their responsibilities under the law, finding any excuse to not pay money you need to keep a roof over your head.

Enlist the help of an experienced workers' compensation attorney to obtain the benefits you need to provide for your family

Let's be absolutely clear – Colorado workers' compensation laws require your employer's insurer pay wage loss benefits if your on-the-job injury affects your paycheck in anyway. This safeguard was put in place to protect injured workers from bankruptcy and financial ruin.

Like other workers' compensation benefits, there are some limitations to this benefit – namely it pays 2/3 of the difference between your pre-injury pay level and what you're being paid for modified job duties during your treatment. However, it is an invaluable part of accomplishing the goals of workers' comp.

So if you're having problems obtaining your temporary partial disability or any other benefits, contact Denver workers' compensation lawyer R. Mack Babcock today for a free consultation.
