Disability and Disfigurement Benefits in Colorado: How Much Is An Individual Entitled To?

If you get injured at work, you could be eligible for disability and disfigurement benefits. Although this may be true, these benefits are usually ones the insurance companies cheat the injured workers out on the most. At least, from our experience.

What are the disability and disfigurement benefits in Colorado?

In the first place, these benefits are paid to injured workers over and beyond all other benefits when the injury results in an actual disfigurement.

Additionally, we have something informally called “the bathing suit rule”. This means that if you suffered a scar of any sort and it can be seen in public view that’s not covered by a bathing suit. If this is the case, then you would be entitled to benefits.

What can I get for disability and disfigurement benefits?

The amount that an injured worker is entitled to can be up to more than a thousand dollars depending on the severity of the scar.

Furthermore, disfigurements can be considered loss of teeth, scars on the skin, loss of hair, or anything that results in permanent scarring or disfigurement of the body.
