I would like to know about my rights in Colorado regarding "pain & suffering"
I fell at work and tore my left shoulder rotator cuff.
The medical bills are being taken care of by Workman's comp. but I have been reading about this particular injury and am discovering the recovery time of the healing process is possibly a lifetime.
I may never have the same range of motion in my shoulder as I did before the fall.
I understand that "negligence" must be proven in order to file a suit when workman's comp is picking up the bill for the medical costs.
The case seems pretty solid.
I have evidence of an e mail sent to the safety director about a month prior to the fall.
It noted the exact area of concern as a safety hazard and the potential for a serious accident.
Nothing was done. Can I receive any kind of compensation for the "pain & suffering"
Thanks for the replies.
