Employer Retaliation is Possible, But Don’t Be Discouraged.

Do you feel your employer is retaliating against you after you filed your worker’s compensation claim?

Is your employer forcing you to come back to work before your recover?

Are you worried your claim will be denied?

According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, “laws prohibit punishing job applicants or employees for asserting their rights, including:

  • filing or being a witness in an EEO charge, complaint, investigation, or lawsuit; or
  • answering questions during an employer investigation.”

If your health has been affected by your job, you’ve been hurt enough. Don’t let the fear of being fired leave you struggling to pay your medical bills that would otherwise be covered.

The Claims Adjuster’s Role: Know Who You’re Dealing With!

Do you hate dealing with insurance companies?

Are you worried you won’t receive your workers compensation benefits?

Are you not sure how to answer the claims adjuster’s questions?

The claims adjuster’s job is to resolve your claim, so that the insurance company will pay as little as possible. They aren’t there to help you. They don’t have your best interests in mind. They’re required to examine your claims closely to ensure your coverage requirements are met. For example, an adjuster may question whether your injury really did occur on the job.

It’s best to have a Colorado worker’s compensation attorney on your side. Our attorneys will make sure you get the best settlement possible to ensure your family will be taken care of while you recover. 

An attorney can negotiate on your behalf! Our Colorado workers compensation attorney realizes the importance of your case. We can determine how important factors will affect the value of your case, including:
  • How does your injury or illness restrict you from doing day-to-day tasks?
  • What is your disability rating?
  • Is your disability partial or total?
  • Is your disability temporary or permanent?
  • How much was your previous salary?
  • What will be the costs of past and future medical treatment?

Do you think you’re the best person to represent yourself in your workers compensation lawsuit? The answer is “probably not.” Without a lawyer to fight for rights you didn’t know you had, you could miss out on settlement money you’re entitled to.
