Colorado Workers’ Compensation Statute Of Limitations
If you have been injured on the job, it is critical to report your injury to your employer and file your claim as soon as possible. There is a statute of limitations that will limit or eliminate your ability to pursue the workers’ compensation benefits you are entitled to as a result of your work-related injuries.
The Eley Law Firm has protected the rights of injured workers in Denver and throughout Colorado since 1983. We fully understand the workers’ compensation system and how it works.

The Clock Is Ticking …
In Colorado, as in most states, you do not have unlimited time to pursue your workers’ compensation claim. In almost all cases, an injured worker has two years to file a claim, although in some cases, a judge will allow three years if there is a compelling reason.
Did You Miss Three Days Of Work?
When a worker reports an injury and misses at least three days of work, his or her employer is required to file the employer’s first report of injury. The clock on the statute of limitations will usually not start until your employer takes this critical step.
At the Eley Law Firm in Denver, we work on a contingency or percentage fee basis. This means you pay us fees only if we recover benefits for you.
