There are specific requirements you must meet to be eligible for the benefits. First, compensation is available to every Colorado worker injured in their course of duty; it doesn’t matter whether they were involved in causing the accident or not.
Victims who develop occupational diseases or injuries and those who’ve lost a dear one due to the work-related accident are also entitled to the compensation. You can contact us today for a free evaluation to determine whether you qualify for the Maryland workers compensation benefits.
Following your injury at work, it’s recommended that you write to the company about your intention to get compensation within four days after the accident. If you miss this deadline, then your claims may be delayed, or even the benefits reduced from the original payment sum.
However, in cases where you’re badly hurt and can’t write this notification to your employers, feel free to contact us at Robinson & Associates, and we shall gladly take care of the rest. Our lawyers will notify your employer through writing in good time, and handle any other bureaucratic processes involved in getting your benefits.
After filing your claim with the company, they will have to notify their insurance provider about your injury within ten days after it has occurred. This process is known as the Employer’s First Report of Injury and is necessary to commence your worker’s compensation claim. The insurer will then have a maximum of 20 days after the report has been submitted to provide a claim decision. This may either be a Liability Admission where the benefits are approved, or denial of benefits also known as Notice of Contest.
