Colorado Workers’ Compensation Claim
Getting the Money You Deserve from the Work Comp System
Delander W. was working at his employer’s warehouse when an unsafe work area led to a wrenching knee injury. The injury was so serious it required knee surgery and replacement of part of Delander’s knee. The employer’s insurance company dug in its heels, said the injury wasn’t that bad and he’d be back to work soon. The insurer made an initial offer of only $10,000.
Dianne Sawaya’s work comp department took the case to mediation and in the lengthy hearing showed the judge that Delander would never work again in anything like the job he used to have. Instead, he’d have to settle for lower paying work and be hurt financially. The judge agreed and Delander got the money he deserved.
