If a claimant is injured in the course of medical care, or traveling to and from such care, their injuries are as compensable as if they were due to the original injury.  Injuries in the course of medical care or transportation to that care are considered compensable under a doctrine known as “the quasi-course and scope of employment” theory.  Under current Colorado law, the carrier at risk at the time of the original injury is responsible for benefits flowing from a subsequent injury, even if the subsequent injury date occurs many years later or the employee is working for someone else.
