If you’re having a hard time getting your employer to pay for your injury, it’s about time you hire one of our experienced Colorado workers’ compensation attorneys. We’ll be by your side through the whole process, so you can take your mind off the legal issues and focus on getting better. 

Some employers avoid using workman's comp by forcing an employee to return to work. Your employer may say that you won’t be required to perform your regular duties, but the work could still exacerbate your injury. They may even offer to pay your regular wages. It could be more than you’d receive through workers' compensation, however, you won’t be eligible for coverage of future medical treatment, or be protected from termination. 

You could be threatened with being fired or your employer could delay the entire process until you give up filing for worker’s compensation. A dishonest employer may request that an employee use his or her own health insurance to cover the medical costs of the injury, but this may prevent the employee from filing for workman's comp in the future or at least subject you to collection and being personally responsible for medical bills.
