Is workmans compensation taxable income in co?

Amounts you receive as workers' compensation for an occupational sickness or injury are fully exempt from tax if they are paid under a workers' compensation act or a statute in the nature of a workers' compensation act. The exemption also applies to your survivors. The exemption, however, does not apply to retirement plan benefits you receive based on your age, length of service, or prior contributions to the plan, even if you retired because of an occupational sickness or injury. If part of your workers' compensation reduces your social security or equivalent railroad retirement benefits received, that part is considered social security (or equivalent railroad retirement) benefits and may be taxable. For a discussion of the taxability of these benefits, see Other Income under Miscellaneous Income, later. Go to the IRS gov web site and use the search box for Publication 525 Taxable and Nontaxable income

Finding a Worker's Compensation Attorney?

You are entitled to receive worker's compensation for any injury you sustained on the job, even if you caused the injury yourself. For example, if you were distracted while walking, fell down and broke your arm, you could collect worker's compensation while you recovered from your injuries. The flip side of the worker's compensation law is that you are prohibited from suing your employer for additional damages if your injuries were the employer's fault. As an example of this, imagine that your employer asked you to lift too much weight at one time and you sustained a back injury as a result.When You May Need a Worker's Compensation AttorneyBy law, your employer is required to report your injury to their insurance company within 24 hours of your reporting it. Unfortunately, this doesn't always happen and it can affect the outcome of your case. Your employer's insurance company may also deny the claim by stating they don't believe your injury is work related. In order to collect the benefits you are entitled to, you would need to retain an attorney to investigate your case.You may also wish to obtain legal advice if your employer's insurance company is severely limiting your treatment options. They may claim they will only pay for you to see one particular doctor or require you to return to work sooner than you are able to due to your injuries. You may feel you have no choice but to return to work injured so you don't lose your job. Worker's compensation lawyers deal with these kinds of situations all the time.Third Party Worker's Compensation LawsuitsAlthough you can't sue your employer for additional damages under worker's compensation law, you can file a lawsuit if your injuries were caused by a third party. This may be a delivery driver, a client of your employer, a subcontractor working with you at a job site or other possibilities. In this instance, you are entitled to receive benefits from worker's compensation and you have the right to sue the third party for additional damages .Benefits You Can Obtain with an AttorneyIf you decide to hire a lawyer, he or she can assist you in obtaining lost wages, medical compensation and job re-training services. Your lawyer can also help you obtain permanent disability benefits.
