After being injured while working, you will likely be focused on your health and what you need to do to recover; however, immediately after a work injury, it will be vital that you take steps to protect your rights to workers compensation benefits, as failing to act in a timely manner can disqualify you from being eligible for these benefits altogether. What can be just as overwhelming as the injury itself are the facts that:
- Colorado workers compensation laws are complicated and are regularly changing, which means that its more likely than not that you will not be familiar with them in the event you are injured at work.
- Employers staff people who are highly familiar with these complex laws, and corporations will typically try to use this to their advantage to minimize their costs to the detriment of injured workers.
At the Law Offices of Michael P. Dominick, our trusted Erie workers compensation attorneys:
- Are passionate about defending the rights of injured workers
- Fully understand the complexities of Colorado workers compensation laws
- Have decades of experience in handling workers compensation claims
- Have a proven track record of success when it comes to helping injured workers secure the compensation they deserve
While we can effectively assist injured workers at every stage of their case, we can also help those whose claims have been denied to get their cases reopened so they can obtain the workers compensation benefits they are entitled to.
