Do I Have a Case?

If you’re dealing with a workplace injury and wondering if you need an attorney, it’s important to remember that each workers’ comp claim is unique. Workers’ compensation benefits are for workers who have suffered on-the-job injuries or job-related illnesses, which can take many forms.

  • Fractures
  • Eye injuries
  • Bruises and burns
  • Sprains and strains
  • Skin lacerations
  • Cumulative trauma from repetitive work

When seeking workers’ comp, it’s important to adhere to strict deadlines in place by the state called the statute of limitations. In Colorado, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a claim, but you must report the accident to your employer immediately. Having one of our experienced workers’ comp attorneys on your side can ensure you don’t miss a crucial deadline and accidentally forfeit your right to compensation.

What Are Workers’ Compensation Benefits?

Workers’ compensation benefits pay for hospital evaluations and medical treatments needed to diagnose and treat an on-the-job injury or illness. Medical benefits may cover expenses like hospitalization, surgery, doctor’s visits, medication, physical therapy, and more.

Disability benefits cover part of your wages if your injury prevents you from working, whether temporarily or permanently. These fall into several categories:

  • Temporary total disability is for an injury that prevents you from working at all, but only for a short period of time.
  • Temporary partial disability is for an injury that prevents you from doing your normal work tasks for a limited amount of time.
  • Permanent partial disability is for an injury that permanently affects your ability to do your usual work tasks.
  • Permanent total disability is for injuries that are so severe that you can’t work at all.

If you are unsure which type of disability benefit you may be applicable for, contact our Colorado workers’ comp attorneys. Our experienced team of attorneys can help you seek the compensation you deserve. It’s just that easy!

If an employee dies because of a work-related injury or illness, the family of the deceased may be entitled to death benefits. Death benefits may cover funeral expenses and financial support for the surviving spouse, children, or other dependents.

How Can a Lawyer Help?

Workers’ compensation claims are challenging, especially if you don’t have a lawyer advocating on your behalf. You have to prove that your injuries or illness occurred on the job and how they affect your earning potential and follow the timeline for filing all the paperwork.

A Pueblo workers’ comp lawyer can handle the burden of filing a claim for you. They will gather evidence, file the proper paperwork, field calls from insurance adjusters or lawyers, build a strong case for your claim, and so much more.

How To File for Workers’ Comp

If you’ve been injured on the job, it’s important to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. In non-emergency situations, you may choose an approved medical provider from your employer, but you must visit them within seven days of reporting the injury.

You have four working days to report your injury to your employer in writing.

You can file a Workers’ Claim for Compensation (WC 15) form within two years of your injury, even if your employer doesn’t carry workers’ compensation insurance as long as you reported your injury within four working days of your accident.

Navigating the workers’ compensation system can be challenging, especially if you’re suffering from an injury. Our lawyers can help you file the proper paperwork, record your medical expenses, or resolve issues with your claim if it was denied. Without a lawyer, you could be at a disadvantage in getting the full compensation for your injury or illness. Don’t go it alone. We’re here to make it easy for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Injuries caused by a worker intentionally or as a result of illegal activity, such as drinking alcohol on the job or committing a crime, may not be covered by workers’ compensation.

In some cases, you must choose from a list of medical providers from your employer, but that’s not always the case. This can be a concern for many people, so be sure to discuss your rights regarding choosing your doctor with your Heuser & Heuser attorney.

If your workers’ comp claim is denied or you disagree with the benefit amount, you can appeal the decision with the Office of Administrative Courts. This can be complicated. Let us take care of it for you so you can focus on recovering.

Workers’ compensation benefits vary greatly and are influenced by your income and your medical expenses for reasonable treatment. Every case and client is unique, but when you work with Heuser & Heuser, we will fight for every dollar you deserve for your losses.

The time limit for your workers’ compensation benefits depends on the nature of your injury and its impact on your current and future earning potential.
