Younger workers’ have safety rights, too

For many Denver teenagers, their first job provides them with their first sense of freedom as well as their first major responsibility. Now, they have an opportunity to earn an income, but they also have to stick to their new schedule, learn fresh skills and develop a professional demeanor for the workplace. The majority of adolescents get jobs that pay minimum wage or just more than that, often working in restaurants, for retailers or completing general office work. Regardless, young people in Denver still have safety rights while they are on the job!

Why does car insurance matter?

Most people who drive in Colorado know that carrying some level of automobile insurance is required by law. Unfortunately, however, even while this is the law many people still make the choice to drive without having this protection. It is important to understand how car insurance protects not just anyone you might hit but how it also protects you. Additionally, if you are hit by a driver who does not have insurance, you will want to know what type of rights you have.

Uber and Lyft drivers are on their own if injured

Ridesharing is just another facet of the newly-minted sharing economy, in which consumers around the globe have turned to social media to get their goods and services for a fraction of the cost. Companies such as Uber and Lyft have taken advantage of new technology and the public's desire to obtain cheap and convenient rides from nearly anywhere. For passengers, the ability to use an app to get a ride home from the airport for significantly less than a cab fare keeps them coming back for more. For drivers, the ability to work as an independent contractor, choose their own hours and earn a generous yet flexible income keeps them behind the wheel.

Autumn means more runner injuries on our roads

To put it simply, the autumn season in Colorado is spectacular. There is a brisk chill in the air, and the mountain valleys transform into a rainbow of burgundy, chocolate brown and crimson. Wildlife is beginning to settle in for the cozy winter, and the ski resorts are gearing up for yet another fun-filled season on the powder. For runners, it's often the perfect time to head out to clock those miles.

When teenagers get hurt at work

The teenage years are awkward for a wide variety of reasons. Not only are young people transforming into adults and learning who they are and what they want to become, but they also are trying to make their place in the world. They want independence, but it can be difficult to achieve while living with their parents and finishing their school years. So for many, the best way to start finding their own way is to get that coveted first job.

Injuries to lawn care workers

Autumn in Colorado inspires many people to take a step back and appreciate the beauty of nature. But for lawn care workers, this colorful season filled with crisp breezes and bountiful harvests usually means that it's time to get to work. Lawns still need to be manicured, and then there's the additional work of trimming landscaping, cleaning up the fallen leaves and removing debris from sidewalks, driveways and roadways. With more work to do, there's often an increased risk of injury.

Colorado residents face growing risk in high drivers

Colorado made headlines when it became the first state in the nation to legalize the recreational use of pot. Regardless of whether or not someone agrees with that decision, there are numerous ways that this decision may impact people, even those who may chose not to use marijuana themselves. One of these is when an accident occurs that involves a high driver.
