Obtaining your Temporary Total Disability Benefits

If your injury is severe enough that you cannot work at all, Denver workers' comp attorney R. Mack Babcock can help you acquire benefits to keep you afloat

During the course of treating your on-the-job injury, you may be unable to work at all. To help you financially weather the storm, Colorado workers' compensation laws stipulate that you are entitled to receive 2/3 of your average pre-injury weekly wage from your employer's workers' comp insurer.

However, many workers' compensation insurers in Colorado try to find ways not to pay. They may argue that the doctor's assessment isn't correct and that you can actually work or they may say your injury was caused by a non-work related event and is not covered – the possibilities are endless.

Workers' comp lawyer R. Mack Babcock has seen many of these strategies and knows how to work around them to help you obtain vital funds to keep you financially solvent

Safeguards like temporary total disability benefits were put in place to make sure a worker injured on-the-job would not be financially ruined by such an event. Having to miss work for several months can be a crippling blow to you and your family. Temporary total disability benefits help make sure you can still meet your financial obligations while you're being treated for an on-the-job injury.

Limitations to benefit payouts do come into play once your medical treatment is complete but during treatment, the only limitation that applies is 2/3 of your average pre-injury weekly wage up to a certain amount. Even if it takes 10 years to treat your injury, you are entitled to receive temporary total disability benefits.

So if you're having trouble obtaining temporary total disability or any other benefits, contact Colorado workers' compensation lawyer R. Mack Babcock at the Babcock Law Firm today for a free consultation.
