Personal Injury & Workers' Compensation Finding the right lawyer is not another complication; it's a step toward a better resolution.

What if you can't go back to work after a workplace accident?

A serious accident on the job can leave workers with injuries that change their lives forever. While many recover and eventually return to work, this is not always the case. Some workers will need vocational rehabilitation - that is, assistance in finding new employment with requirements that they are able to perform. How can the Colorado Division of Vocational Rehabilitation help these individuals?

The Division of Vocational Rehabilitation provides a diverse array of services. Counselors are available to work one-on-one with eligible individuals and provide guidance. Training is another important service, whether job-specific training or perhaps academic training in order to help build up a new set of skills and knowledge. Of course, assistance is available with searching for jobs, placement and coaching. Sometimes technology can help an injured employee adapt to a new job, and the Division can help in this regard as well.

When filing a claim for workers' compensation, vocational rehabilitation may be one of the benefits that an injured employee is eligible to receive. Navigating the process of these benefits, however, isn't always the easiest without professional assistance.

When an injury prevents an employee from being able to resume his or her old job, vocational rehabilitation can be a vital form of support in transitioning into a new job or even a new line of work entirely. A legal professional can help ensure that an employee receives the full range of benefits to which he or she is entitled.
