Workplace Injuries

Injured on the job in Colorado? We can help.

If you have been injured at work, then you may find yourself in a highly difficult position. You might be facing a lengthy period of lost wages while you take time off to recover, and your injury may have left you with a permanent disability that will make it impossible to return to work, let alone being able to enjoy your favorite recreational activities or go about your daily routine. With proper medical treatment you might be able to make a full recovery, but how will you be able to afford the necessary procedures and rehabilitative care? What if you need a wheelchair or other equipment?

The answers to these questions may be found by understanding your workers' compensation claim options. A Colorado Springs attorney from our firm can help you to file a claim for workers' compensation benefits. Nearly all businesses in Colorado are required by state law to carry workers' comp insurance to cover their employees in the event of an injury on the job, so there is a very high likelihood that you are eligible for benefits. This makes it possible for you to receive any and all treatment you will require to achieve the maximum medical improvement, as well as disability benefits to help you support your family. If you have suffered an injury that has left you with a serious scarring from cuts or burns, if you can now walk only with a limp, or if you have suffered a crushed or severed limb, then you may additionally be able to claim disfigurement benefits of as much as $8,000.
