Colorado Workers’ Compensation
A Long Reach for Compensation
Calinda L. was sitting in her office when a car lost control and came through the glass windows and hit her desk, just missing Calinda. She was cut in several places from flying glass and was badly shaken up. Worse, she suffered back pain and spasms, neck pain, headaches, anxiety and nightmares. Shortly after the accident, Calinda received some medical care and then moved to another state. The work comp insurance company offered $500 to Calinda. The Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya told them that wouldn’t do. We got a doctor, chiropractor and psychologist authorized in Calinda’s new state and approved through Colorado work comp to provide additional treatment. By putting Dianne Sawaya’s office to work fighting for her rights, Calinda settled her case for $6,750 – instead of $500.
