Is it Reasonable to Worry About Being Fired for Filing a Claim?

Have you heard about people losing their jobs after filing a workers’ compensation claim? Are you considering keeping quiet about a workplace injury so you can keep your job?

Colorado law has a few specific statutes which lay out the rules and regulations for termination of employment. No statute exists to protect workers who have filed compensation claims from being fired, but common law does provide some protection.
Colorado Workers Compensation Attorney

It is illegal for an employer to fire a worker because that worker filed a compensation claim. However, the act being illegal does not keep people from doing it. Because you must prove you were fired because of the workers’ compensation claim, some employers may find another reason to justify your termination, creating a loophole in the law.

So, unfortunately, worrying about losing your job after filing a claim is reasonable; but you should know, the law is on your side!

If your health has been affected by your job, you’ve been hurt enough. Take some of the burden and worry off your plate by contacting a Colorado workers’ compensation attorney. With an expert by your side through the whole process, you can take your mind off the overwhelming legal issues and focus on getting better. Call today and get the support you deserve!

How Can I Change Doctors or Get a Second Opinion for My Workers’ Comp Case?

Are you unhappy with the treatment you’re receiving following a work-related injury? Are you looking for a second evaluation of your condition? Did you know it’s your right to receive quality care at no cost?

You’ve already been through a lot, being injured at work and unable to continue with your job, even if that’s only short term; feeling that you’re being misdiagnosed or that your doctor is understating your diagnosis is not something you should have to deal with. If you aren’t satisfied with the doctor handling your case, you have options!

1. Change Your Doctor


If you aren’t getting the care you deserve, you can, and should, change your doctor. But you can’t choose just any doctor. When you suffer an injury at work you’re supposed to get a list of doctors from your employer. If no such list is provided, you’re free to select any doctor but you should be sure the doctor accepts workers’ compensation insurance. You can submit a request to change your physician, within 90 days of your injury.

Make the switch as early as possible to avoid any issues with processing your case.

2. Get a Second Opinion


If you’re unhappy with the conclusion your doctor has drawn about your condition, you need to know about the Colorado DIME process. DIME stands for Division Independent Medical Exam and it involves having your condition or injury officially evaluated by second a doctor.

You would consider the DIME process once your doctor has determined you’ve reached maximum medical improvement (MMI) and, for example, considers you able to return to work immediately at full capacity, but you disagree.

3. Consult the Experts, Your Colorado Workers’ Compensation Attorney!


All the rules, options, and scenarios (not to mention paperwork) can be a lot for one person to handle without a law degree. Because getting the care, support, and benefits you deserve is too important to risk, consider having an experienced Colorado workers’ compensation attorney by your side as you navigate the difficult waters.

Whether you’re just starting the process or already know you want a second opinion, give us a call today, and we’ll guide you through whatever comes next!

Colorado Work Injury Settlements

Have you suffered an injury due to a slip and fall accident at work?

Are you worried about paying your medical bills?

Are you having problems making ends meet?

In the state of Colorado, the property owner has a responsibility to keep the sidewalk clear and free of obstacles, but the person who's walking also has some responsibility for their own safety. If you slip and fall in a parking lot that you’re designated to park in, your employer is automatically responsible without question.

It’s very common that you may have a third party claim as well. For example, if you get into a car accident in a designated parking lot with another driver and suffer a severe injury, you may have a third party claim. You may be able to sue the driver of the vehicle, as well as, retain workers compensation benefits for lost wages as a result of having to take time off work.

If you have evidence to help support your claims, you have a better shot at proving your case and ultimately receiving the best settlement for your injury. However, are you afraid that with even a mountain of evidence your insurance company will cheat you out of what’s rightfully yours? You may need to speak with an experienced attorney about your rights!

What if I Was Injured While Taking a Break?

Were you injured while taking a break at work?

Are your doctor bills piling up?

Do you want to know what your rights are?
Grand Junction workers compensation attorneys

While workers’ comp laws vary from state to state, in many cases, companies will have to pay if a worker is injured in recreational, social or athletic injuries if they happen during the course of employment. For example, your employer might have to pay comp for an injury if:

  • The activity took place on company premises during lunch or a recreational event;
  • Your company required participation; or
  • Your company received direct benefit from the worker’s participation, such as advertising the company logo on shirts or hats during games or practice.

It’s important to consult with expert Grand Junction workers compensation attorneys about your rights. Last year, we won many workers compensation benefits for our clients ranging from simple cases to very complex ones. We’re willing to take on many cases that other attorneys find too difficult.
