What Are My Rights When Returning to Work After Sustaining an Injury?

Glenwood Springs Workers Comp Attorneys

Are you eager to return to work?

Afraid you’ll lose your job?

Do you know what your rights are?

Here’s what you need to know:

  1. If you have restrictions, make them clear. If your boss invites you back for a light work load, but is putting pressure on you to perform restricted activities, make him or her aware of what you can and cannot do.
  2. Have your attorney write a letter to your insurance company documenting any incidents. That way, your limitations won’t hurt your credibility or your recovery time.

You could lose your benefits! Some employers will seek out any reason to fire you when you come back to work. A little bit of slacking off on the job may no longer be overlooked. Get the job done you came there to do!

We’ve been representing injured workers on the Western Slope of Colorado for over 72 years of combined years, longer than any other Glenwood Springs workers comp attorneys in the area.

"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."

"I’ve known the folks at Kaufman and Kaufman for more than 30 years. Correct - I said 30 years. The Kaufman’s have *always* done the right thing, especially when it’s not easy. Trust, in 2022, is hard. Trusting the Kaufman’s, in 2022, is simple."

- Jeff W. (2022)

"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."

- Jessica C. (2022)

"The Kaufmans are a family owned firm that I highly recommend! They have always acted with integrity and intent to help people as best they can. You can trust them and I have dealt with the Kaufmans for a number of years now."

- JB (2022)

"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."
