Types of injuries that are covered by workers' compensation

The Colorado workers' compensation program is designed to provide benefits to help those who suffer a work-related injury or illness with the costs of their medical treatment as well as the financial burden of being unable to work. This type of claim is often filed after an employee has been injured in a workplace accident, but claims could also be made by workers who have become ill due to a toxic environment or other causes.

Why would I need an attorney if I'm injured at work?

The vast majority of Colorado employers are required to carry workers' compensation insurance. This insurance helps pay the medical expenses, lost wages and disability benefits of an individual who is injured at work or while performing job-related duties. While the basic purpose of workers' compensation insurance seems straightforward, for an individual who is in pain and struggling to overcome an injury, the process of obtaining benefits can quickly become overwhelming.

OSHA takes steps to expand protections for workers against hazardous substances

Every day, workers across the U.S. are exposed to a variety of chemicals and substances that may have adverse health side effects.

Are U.S. hospitals taking steps to protect employees from Ebola ?

Defending the rights of injured workers

Whether an individual spends the majority of their work day sitting at a desk typing on a computer, operating a forklift at a warehouse or standing atop scaffolding while working at a construction site; any worker can suffer an injury while performing work duties. To help prevent workplace accidents and injuries, employers must provide workers with proper training, equipment and protective gear.
