Why Do You Need a Colorado Workers' Compensation Lawyer?

Navigating Colorado's workers' compensation law involves a complex landscape of statutes, regulations, and procedural rules dictating the benefits for injured workers and the payment procedures. These laws also outline intricate steps to follow in case of disputes between the injured employee & their employer or workers' compensation insurance company.

Employers and insurance companies are well-versed in these complexities, exploiting the confusion to minimize the benefits or settlements paid to injured parties. To ensure your rights are protected and you receive the maximum owed benefits, it is crucial to have a Colorado workers' compensation attorney on your side. With a deep understanding of how employers and workers' compensation insurance companies operate, we help injured workers secure the benefits and settlements they deserve. Our lawyer helps you:

Understand Your Legal Rights

Navigating Alamosa's workers' compensation laws demands thoroughly comprehending your rights as an injured worker. That's what we help you with.

Negotiate Fair Compensation

Under Colorado Workers' Compensation Laws, the benefits you receive will amount to 2/3rds of your weekly average wage at the time of your injury, capped at the maximum allowable amount by law. This AWW encompasses gross wages, commissions, salary, tips, and overtime.

However, employers and insurance companies often seek to minimize the compensation owed to you. Leveraging our wealth of experience, we adeptly negotiate on your behalf, ensuring you receive equitable compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and potential disability.

Handling Disputes

In instances where employers dispute the claim, legal representation becomes indispensable. Larson Law Firm excels at advocating for your rights, constructing a robust case to secure the compensation you deserve.

Filing a Claim- How Do I Make a Workers' Compensation Claim?

Report the Injury to the Employer

Employers initiate the claim within ten days. A decision, either an Admission of Liability or a denial, is made within 20 days of filing the report. Therefore, timely reporting is critical.  So, make sure to file the claim promptly and report your employer. In Alamosa, Colorado, the law requires employees to notify their employers within four working days, but it's advisable to do so as soon as possible. Failure to do so may lower your chances of securing claim benefits.

Document the Incident

Keep detailed records of the workplace accident, including the date, time, location, and witnesses. This documentation strengthens your case.

Seek Medical Attention

Make sure to get a proper diagnosis and checkup so that all external and internal injuries are reported immediately. Reporting injuries later will put the insurer in a stronger position as they can deny the claim, stating that the victim must have incurred them in some other accident.  

File the Claim

Our Colorado workers' compensation attorney helps you complete paperwork, ensuring all required documents are submitted accurately and on time.

Admission of Liability

The admission of liability is a pivotal stage in the workers' compensation process. It involves the employer acknowledging the work-related nature of the injury or illness. Here's what you need to know.

After reporting the injury, the employer has a specific timeframe to respond. If they admit liability, the benefits process can begin. Employers may sometimes dispute the claim, leading to a more complex legal process. Here's where you need robust representation to safeguard your rights.

I thought I needed a big city lawyer for my workers’ compensation case, so I hired the Strong Arm. After he took the easy money, he told me I was done. I fired him and took my case to the Larson Law Firm, PC. They fought for me and got another $80,000.

Mr. Larson and his staff were excellent to work with on my case. They kept me informed at every step, answered all of my many questions, helped me understand early on what this process would be like, and ultimately made an extraordinarily stressful time in my life far easier to manage. The valley is fortunate to have Mr. Larson here. If you are needing legal services and live here in the valley, I absolutely recommend going with him. He is honest, hard-working, and takes all of the time you need to help you navigate your case. I sincerely appreciate all of the work from he and his staff over the past year and a half. Thank you again!
