In Colorado, workers compensation is a “no-fault system,” meaning that a person does not have to prove that an employer’s negligence or unsafe work conditions contributed to an injury; instead, the injured worker only needs to prove that he was on the job when the injury occurred. However, despite the simple terms of this no-fault system, in practice, Colorado workers compensation laws are highly complex, and failing to complete the necessary paperwork, file the appropriate documents, meet specific deadlines, etc. can result in the denial of legitimate workers compensation claims.
What can be just as troubling as the uphill battle that injured workers face is the fact that insurance providers and employers are highly familiar with the complicated process associated with the workers compensation system, and they will act in their own best interests, which usually means that they will try to minimize injured parties’ claims to reduce the amount they have to pay out.
