Do You Know You’re Obligated to Report Your Injury?

Glenwood Springs Workers Comp Attorneys

Are you wondering if you have to report your injury?

The answer is “Yes”! You have an obligation to report your injury as soon as it happens. If you don’t report your injury right away, you may not be covered by insurance.

According to, “there are three things to do if you’re injured on the job:

  • Report the injury to your supervisor or employer immediately in writing;
  • Request to see a doctor and get a list of designated positions of which doctor‚Äôs your allowed to see; and
  • Request and complete an employers first report of injury and or workers compensation claim form.

Until you report the injury and the claim form is returned to your employer, they're under limited obligation to provide you with benefits. A common mistake people make is waiting to report the injury until it becomes unbearable and they can no longer work.

While it's still possible to pursue the claim, the delay in reporting creates serious problems in getting the benefits started. Prompt reporting and immediate medical care ensures that the workers' compensation benefits aren't delayed while you're off work with no income.”

"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.
