Workers' Compensation Claims - Southwest Colorado

The workers' compensation laws are designed to provide no-fault medical and disability insurance coverage for Colorado employees and workers. Workers' compensation benefits include paying for all your medical bills, mileage to and from medical appointments, partial reimbursement for lost time at work and temporary or permanent disability coverage. Ideally, all of these benefits should be provided swiftly and an injured worker could recover and return to their employment without worrying about paying their bills or being denied coverage. Unfortunately, workers' compensation benefits are provided by insurance companies who are continually changing their rules in an attempt to limit or deny coverage in order to improve their bottom line by paying as little as possible in claims. In fact, they will often spend a lot of money on attorney's fees and expert witnesses in an effort to deny your claim. If you are injured on the job or have been denied coverage by the workers' compensation insurance carrier, you should speak to a Durango workers' compensation attorney at The Soignier Law Firm, LLC.
