Colorado Worker’s Compensation
Large Employer Tries to Push Its Employee Around
Brian J. was in a work accident that led to a serious knee injury. Following the injury, Brian’s employer – a large corporation – played hardball and denied that it was to blame. The company’s work comp doctor gave him a 0% impairment of his knee, meaning the company’s work compensation insurer wouldn’t pay for his injuries. He was offered nothing in settlement and nothing in the way of a disability payment. That wouldn’t fly with Dianne Sawaya. She filed two claims, one for an injury and one for an occupational disease. After a hard-fought battle, Brian came away with a fair settlement for his injuries and suffering.
