Learn About Your Legal And Medical Options From A Colorado Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
One of the key issues in handling workers’ compensation cases outside of Colorado is finding appropriate medical treatment for your injuries. We will work with you to find a doctor who will accept Colorado workers’ compensation.
In most cases, we will need you to come to Colorado to be seen by a doctor, as there are certifications specific to Colorado. For example, a doctor outside of Colorado will not be able to give a permanent disability rating other than a zero. We will work to get you the rating that best benefits you. If you do need to come to Colorado, the insurance company will usually be responsible for covering your expenses for flights, lodging and meals.
