Supreme Court decides that worker only pays back true recovery

An interesting decision by the Supreme Court of the United States will likely affect how workers' compensation is paid out in the future in Colorado and across the country. The case involved an airline mechanic who was injured on the job and whose medical bills had been paid by his employer, US Airways. After he had recovered, the mechanic had filed a personal injury lawsuit against the driver that caused the car accident in which he was injured. He also received some money from his insurance company. The question the justices were deciding was exactly how much did the man have to pay his employer back.

Husband of woman killed may have to repay workers' compensation

In early 2009, a fatal accident occurred in Denver, Colorado. Two women who were in Denver for a work convention were killed after their taxi was struck by a drunk driver. The husband of one of the women filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the driver who caused the accident and won a settlement.
