“What if my employer doesn’t have workers’ compensation insurance?”

Colorado Workers Compensation Attorneys

“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.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by how complicated it can be to handle your case on your own, contact one of our experienced workers’ compensation attorneys in Colorado.

"Kaufman and Kaufman was extremely professional in my case. They set appointments as often as I requested which was often weekly or more. They handled all the problems that came up and ended up settling my case for more than I expected. I was very happy with the result."

"Kaufman and Kaufman represented me in a workman’s comp case and I couldn’t be happier with their service. They were very professional and gave me the personal service I was relying on. I hope I never get in that kind of situation again but if I do the Kaufman’s would be the firm I’d call. I highly recommend them."

- Erik (2022)

"Couldn't have asked for a more compassionate and thorough legal representation! Matt was so patient in taking the time to explain everything. The entire staff was incredible. I felt bolstered and validated throughout. I would recommend K&K to anyone going through a dark time with a debilitating injury.. they truly do care about their clients."

"The Kaufman team is very professional and knowledgeable about the work comp laws . They guided me in every step of the process, and if I ever have to do this again , they would be my first call. Without them i wouldn't have been able to pay my bills, and provide for my family. Thanks again to Kaufman and Kaufman for allowing my family to survive."
