“What if my employer doesn’t have workers’ compensation insurance?”
“Can I still file for workers’ compensation if my employer doesn’t have workers’ compensation insurance?”
“What kind of benefits do I qualify for?
“What are my options?”
If you’re injured at your workplace and don’t have access to workers’ comp coverage, you have two options:
1. Pursue benefits from your uninsured employer – They’re liable to offer you benefits an insurance company would have provided, plus a 25% penalty. Or you can also choose to file a personal injury lawsuit against your employer for the benefits you’re entitled to.
2. Seek aid from the uninsured employers’ fund – Colorado has a safety net for injured workers under uninsured employers. This will help you pay some of your expenses including: medical expenses and wage loss. To be eligible, the injury should have occurred after January 1, 2020, while you were working for an uninsured employer. You must also have a conclusive order from a judge confirming your entitlement to workers’ compensation benefits.
