Fort Collins Workers' Compensation Attorney
Work Accident and Injury Claims in Fort Collins
No matter what field you work in or what activities you perform as part of your job, you may be at risk of injury or illness. If you were involved in a workplace accident, have become ill from exposure at work or have suffered an injury from performing your job duties, a Fort Collins workers' compensation attorney at our law firm can help. We represent clients throughout the area, offering experienced guidance and aggressive representation through every stage of their workers' comp claim. We welcome you to call us at your earliest convenience to talk to a lawyer about your right to benefits and what you should do at this point to have a positive impact on your claim.
If you are injured at work or while performing the duties associated with your job, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. If you are seriously injured, go to the nearest emergency room or call 911. If your injuries are minor enough, inform your supervisor or manager of what occurred and they should be able to tell you where to seek medical care. Your employer may have a designated medical provider that you should see, and if you see your own doctor in a non-emergency situation this may result in non-payment of medical expenses.
You must notify your employer, in writing, within 4 days of your injury. Though you may still file a claim if you are late in notifying your employer, you may be penalized by losing up to one day's compensation for each day you were late in informing your employer of the incident.
We highly recommend talking to a workers' comp lawyer as soon as possible after your accident or injury. We can help ensure that your employer is properly informed and can handle filing your claim and handling any potential issue that may arise. We represent injured workers in Fort Collins and throughout the surrounding areas and are ready to help you.
