First Step in the Claim Process
Within four days of a
workplace accident, you must provide your employer with written notice that you have suffered
an injury and are preparing to file a claim for workers' compensation.
In the event that you have developed an occupational disease as a result of
toxic exposure or a repetitive stress injury, you must submit your notice within 30 days
of the first distinct manifestation of the condition. As soon as this
is done, your employer is required to refer you to an authorized medical
care provider so that you can begin receiving the treatment you require
to make a full and swift recovery. Don't worry that you will be fired
for filing a workers' compensation claim; it is your right to claim
benefits. In fact, your employer can incur harsh penalties for retaliating
against you for filing a claim.
Guiding You Throughout the Process
Colorado Springs attorneys from our team can assist you with every aspect
of your claim. This includes gathering the necessary documentation and
medical records to prove the severity and scope of your injury, as well
as negotiating with the insurance company over the value of the benefits
you are due. We can even help you file an
appeal in the event that your claim is wrongfully denied. Contact us now for
