What is Colorado Workers’ Compensation?

Colorado Workers’ Compensation helps protect business owners and employees in the event of a work-related injury or illness. It protects employers by limiting their liability, and it protects employees by providing benefits to help them recover from a work-related injury.

 If You Have Suffered a Work-Related Injury

If you are injured at work, it is essential to report your injury to your employer as soon as possible. You must provide written notice to your employer within four working days of your injury.

Seek Medical Attention ASAP

When seeking medical attention for your work-related injury, begin by choosing an authorized medical care provider from your employer. If you are not satisfied with the medical attention you received from your employer-authorized doctor, your workers’ compensation lawyer can help you request a change so you can receive care from a physician of your choice.

Contact a Workers’ Compensation Attorney

It is essential to contact a workers’ compensation lawyer right away because your lawyer will ensure that you obtain all the benefits you are entitled to per Colorado law. Workers’ Compensation benefits may include immediate medical treatment, lost wages, mileage reimbursements, and benefits for permanent impairment. The Colorado Workers’ Comp lawyers at Burg Simpson will protect you and your legal rights.

 Obtain Disability Benefits

If your injury has prevented you from performing your job, or if you can only work on a limited basis, you may be eligible for benefits that will cover some of your lost earnings. Your Workers’ Comp lawyer at Burg Simpson will help you to obtain the benefits to which you are entitled.
