If the employer does not file an Employer’s First Report of Injury with the Division of Worker’s Compensation and also does not file a General Admission of Liability admitting liability for the claimant’s injury, then the claimant must file a workers’ claim for compensation to advance his/her claim.  This worker’s claim for compensation form acts to report the injury with the Division of Workers’ Compensation and to protect the claimant’s rights if he/she later needs to go to hearing or pursue benefits in any manner.  If a General Admission of Liability has not been filed, such a reporting must be made within two (2) years of the date of injury or within three (3) years of date of injury if there is a reasonable excuse for not filing.  (Section 8-43-103(2), C.R.S.).
