“What if My Injury Bothers Me Again in The Future?”

Were you injured in an accident at work?

Have your workers compensation benefits run out?

Are you having a hard time paying for your medical bills because of an injury sustained years earlier?

Are you considering trying to reopen your case?

It always makes sense to consult with an attorney first. No matter what the facts, we’ll let you know whether or not you need a Steamboat Springs workers compensation attorney immediately or at all. It’s hard enough to make insurance companies pay up the first time, so most likely you’ll need a lawyer by your side fighting for your rights.

According to the Colorado Workers Compensation Act, 8-43-303, regarding the reopening of a case:

(1)    At any time within six years after the date of injury, the director or an administrative law judge may, after notice to all parties, review and reopen any award on the ground of fraud, an overpayment, an error, a mistake, or a change in condition, except for those settlements entered into pursuant to section 8-43-204 in which the claimant waived all right to reopen an award; but a settlement may be reopened at any time on the ground of fraud or mutual mistake of material fact.

We’ve been representing injured workers on the Western Slope of Colorado for over 50 years, longer than any other Steamboat Springs workers compensation attorney. Our practice is located in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, and we represent clients in the surrounding areas from Grand Junction, Aspen, Rifle, Steamboat, Craig, to the entire Vail Valley.
