Workers’ Compensation Lawyers │ Fort Collins
When a work accident or illness strikes, you need the representation of a qualified and experienced workers’ compensation attorney. At the Law Office of Regina Walsh Adams in Fort Collins we will go to bat for you to fight, not only your insurance carrier, but also your employer, who does not necessarily have your best interests at heart.
In Colorado if you become injured while at work, or are suffering from a particular work-associated injury, your medical expenses can be taken care of through your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance.
The types of injuries that could keep you from working either temporarily or permanently include bodily injury (all body parts) recurrent stress or strain injuries (carpal tunnel syndrome, for example), or an occupational disease, (i.e. prolonged exposure to asbestos or other toxic chemicals). Ongoing mental anguish, resulting from a traumatic event (sometimes known as post-traumatic stress disorder) can also interfere with your ability to perform at work. Workers’ Compensation may cover these conditions as well as medical services including:
- Medical, surgical, and hospital care
- Dental care
- Other orthopedic devices
- Hearing aids
- Chiropractic treatment
- Physical therapy
- Nursing care
- Prescription medications
Under Colorado law, an injured worker should be given a choice of two treating physicians once they are injured. We can assist you with your selection and help you obtain a physician that is best for your needs.
Determined by your case, you may be awarded benefits for:
- Medical treatment with a board-certified physician
- Medical supplies and assistance
- Temporary disability for time off of work
- Permanent disability
- Death benefits for dependents
We have had successful outcomes or settlements comprising the following:
- Back injuries (fractures, sprains, strains, and sciatica)
- Head, brain, and neck injuries (also concussions and headaches)
- Hand, elbow, arm, and shoulder injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Skin conditions
- Blindness (partial or total)
- Hearing loss, tinnitus
- Hip, leg, knee, foot, and ankle injuries
- CRPS, TMJ, and internal injuries
- Cardiovascular, stroke, diabetes, and lung injuries
The above is not an exhaustive list. When you meet with us, we can examine the possible benefits and compensations that can be legally awarded to you.
