Colorado Springs Wage Benefits Lawyers
Helping You Get Temporary Wages and Medical Benefits
A workplace injury can leave you with steep medical bills and can keep you from earning a paycheck. Whether you are out weeks, months or even longer, it is important to make the most of your workers’ compensation rights.
At Weddell & Haller, P.C., we have been handling workers’ compensation issues for clients throughout Colorado for over 35 years. We are well equipped to help you get full and fair compensation for your workplace injury.
Securing Temporary Wage Benefits
Some workplace injuries can result in permanent disability. Some, however, only keep an injured worker out of commission on a temporary basis. If you have suffered such an injury, it is important to know your legal rights.
In general, Colorado workers’ compensation law allows for two types of temporary wage loss benefits:
- Temporary total disability: If your injury temporarily prevents you from returning to work, you may receive temporary total disability (TTD) benefits. These benefits total two-thirds of your average weekly wage.
- Temporary partial disability: If you are still able to work, but at a limited capacity, temporary partial disability (TPD) benefits can help compensate you for any resulting wage loss.
- Calculating Your Lost Wages: The calculation for your lost wages must include any overtime work, and may include fringe benefits such as health insurance and possibly income from a second job. At Weddell & Haller, P.C., we understand this complicated area of the law and will work diligently to ensure you are paid the full benefits you deserve.
Additionally, the law provides relief for medical bills directly related to your workplace injury. An experienced workers’ compensation attorney can help you get the maximum amount of compensation available under the law. Our goal is to help you through this difficult time and help you get back on your feet.
