Experienced Workers’ Comp Help For Injured Construction Workers

Feb 01 2017

For some people who are injured on the job, workers’ compensation is just a chapter in their lives. Others — including many construction workers — have their lives turned upside down. At Alverson + O’Brien, we want to help you make things right again. That may mean getting you the compensation you need to recover and return to work, or ensuring you receive permanent disability benefits if work is no longer an option.

What Every Construction Worker Should Know About Workers’ Comp

Here are three things you should know if you are injured on a construction job:

  1. It doesn’t matter if you work for a temp agency. Temp agencies, like all Colorado employers, must carry workers’ compensation insurance. Your contractor status has no effect whatsoever on whether you are entitled to workers’ compensation.
  2. You deserve good medical care. You want to get back to work. To do that, you need the best medical care you can get. The workers’ compensation system, however, is set up to prevent you from getting that care. We know how the system works. We know which doctors will offer you the best care. And we know how to tackle insurance company tactics set up to harm you. You deserve good medical care, and you deserve to have advocates on your side who will help you get it.
  3. You must act quickly. There are strict deadlines in place, and missing a deadline cannot be undone. For example, you only have 90 days to change your doctor after the date of your injury. Furthermore, the moment it knows of a possible claim, your employer’s workers’ comp insurer will start developing its case against you. It’s vital for you to have a legal team on your side that will act just as quickly.
