Worker's Comp Claim Denied? Hire a Colorado Workers' Compensation Attorney to Discuss Your Rights

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. - ColoradoDesk -- Kaufman & Kaufman, LLC. will give you the straight facts on why your case might be denied. Everything should be explained in your denial letter, but it can be hard to understand the technical explanations.

Common reasons for a denial of workers' comp benefits include (but are not limited to) the following:
  • Injury was not reported in time: State laws determine how soon you must report an injury to your supervisor, typically within a few days (in Colorado, employers must be notified in writing within four days or you could be subject to a penalty.))
  • Claim was not filed in time: State laws also determine deadlines for filing an initial claim. You have up to 2 years from the date of your injury. However, the longer you wait to report your accident, the harder it is to prove your case.
  • Employer disputes claim: Your employer may claim the accident happened outside of work, was the result of horseplay, or some other disqualifying reason.
