Should I get an attorney for workers comp?
I have been at mmi for about 6 months. During that time, I have gone to another therapy doctor, I am paying for it because I do not like to be in pain all the time. I was suppose to be getting medication for the last six months but the insurance comp told me to see the doctor and the doctor said I have been released and that I need to contact the insurance company. Needless to say, with the restrictions I have because of the impairment rating, I am finding it impossible to find a job. I do get workers comp monthly, for a year, for my back, but the doctor told me the pain will never go away...I am not sure what to do. Would an attorney help me any with this? I live in Colorado and the laws are rather confusing.

What exactly do you want the attorney to do for you? You'll run out of lost wages coverage after a year. If you're not disabled, there isn't anything else to do. You don't get pain & suffering, with workers comp. I think you'll need to find a way to live with the pain, or try some alternative pain treatments.

Bear in mind, the carrier will send you to their doctors, and their doctors will ALWAYS try to send you back to work early and get you MMI really fast. I worked for a worker's... More
