Work Injuries: A Brief Look at Permanent Partial Disability vs. Permanent Total Disability

On-the-job injuries require a great deal of paperwork and negotiation between the injured employee and the employer.  During the course of these negotiations, many different terms will be used to describe specific conditions, injuries and coverage limitations. If you have been injured at your job and are unable to return to work for an extended period of time, or you have limited abilities due to your injuries, you should know what terms do and do not apply to your specific situation.

Consider Your Weekly Wage

When you have been injured on the job and are expecting a long recovery time, it’s likely you are getting nervous about how you are going to pay for everything while you are unable to work. Some companies automatically offer long- and short-term disability leave for injured employees and will begin working on benefit and workers’ compensation packages without hesitation.

Working Days and Nights

The cost of living gets higher and higher every day, and thousands of Americans have to work more than one job to make ends meet. Men and women are working full-time, 40-hour-a-week jobs, and then heading home to change clothes and pull an all-night shift or work a few hours in a retail store or fast food restaurant.

Workers' Compensation and Telecommuting

Today’s super-connected, Internet-based society makes it easy for many people to work from home or telecommute using videoconferencing and email to get their jobs done. While working from home may seem like the perfect setup since there’s no commute, no dress code, and many people have the ability to take care of other personal tasks while they’re on the clock, it makes for complicated legal requirements if you suffer an injury while you are on the job.

Medical Marijuana in the Workplace

Medical marijuana is becoming more socially acceptable across the globe, and a major part of the movement began in Colorado. While many users have found the drug to be significantly helpful in controlling sickness and pain brought on by cancer, radiation treatment and other illnesses, some are having difficulty fitting in what used to be (and still is, in many places) an illegal narcotic with their daily lives.

Breathing In the Fumes: Painter Safety Concerns

Painting can be a dangerous job, especially when you take into account the sheer number of risks involved in an average paint job — heights, unsafe locations, toxic chemicals and more. Painters who work for a company may enjoy some measure of protection under their employers’ safety standards, but only if those standards are actively met and kept up-to-date by company administrators. When safety standards fall by the wayside, the hazards associated with any paint job may be multiplied because there are no guards in place to protect the workers.

Fired for Your Workplace Injuries?

One of the great fears workers have is being fired or let go from a position. The job market is filled with potential employees looking for work; however, there are a minimal number of positions open. For this reason, employees may work in conditions that are less than ideal or they may let an injury go uncontested or unhandled for far too long.

Police Chases

Every police officer knows that the job comes with responsibilities and risks — that’s simply part of the deal. It’s no secret that policemen and women put their lives on the line when they go to work because any situation could escalate to put an officer in bodily harm. Recent news stories have noted a number of lost officers across the country, including one within the Colorado law enforcement department.

Colorado Wrongful Death Claims As They Relate to Workers' Compensation

When an employee’s death is caused by the negligence, oversight or intentional action (or inaction) of another person or company, that employee’s family may be entitled to compensation and financial damages through a wrongful death claim. Under workers’ compensation laws in Colorado, if a person’s death is caused by conditions under his or her employer’s control, a representative from the family’s estate can file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Industrial Claims and Appeals

When you file a workers’ compensation claim in Colorado, it is typically handled by the Administrative Law Judges (ALJ) for the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE). These judges make the decisions on such cases and determine whether an individual will receive benefits from his or her employer for the claim, or whether the claim will be denied, finding that your employer is not responsible for part or all of your injuries and related costs.
