How to Maximize Your Recovery Under Workers’ Compensation
If you or a loved one has been injured while performing job-related duties, Colorado law entitles you to workers’ compensation benefits. As Denver injury lawyers, we are experienced in navigating our clients through the worker’s compensation process and helping them to maximize their recovery. The good news is that the definition of work injury is broad, and covers injuries sustained on the job site, as well as injuries sustained off-site, as long as the worker is fulfilling a work requirement – even if the particular task the worker is performing does not sound like “work.” The bad news is that employers and their insurance companies often use various tactics to deny claims for benefits such as challenging employee assertions that the injuries are job-related. Other grounds for denying workers’ comp claims include the need for further investigation or additional documentation.
From complying with strict statutory deadlines to providing a detailed and well-documented description of your injury and ensuring that the employer’s chosen medical provider accurately diagnoses your injuries, our Workers’ Compensation practice stands ready to assist employees injured on the job.
