No matter how careful you or your employer may be, accidents happen, and they can result in minor to serious work injuries that may require medical attention and/or prevent you from being able to work for some period of time. Although the workers compensation system in Colorado is in place to protect workers in such cases, the extremely complicated nature of the system – along with employers’ and insurance providers’ efforts to minimize their own costs – can prevent injured workers from being able to collect the full amount of the benefits they deserve; in the worst cases, legitimate workers compensation claims may be denied altogether, leaving injured workers saddled with expensive medical bills while they are also unable to earn a paycheck.
The trusted Broomfield workers compensation attorneys at the Law Office of Michael P. Dominick understand how stressful and overwhelming these situations can be, and we want injured workers to know that we are here to fiercely defend their rights to these benefits. Between our experience in standing up to corporate lawyers and insurance adjusters to our thorough knowledge of Colorado workers compensation laws, we can help injured workers obtain the maximum possible benefit awards so that they can focus on their recover. In addition to securing compensation for lost wages, our workers compensation lawyers can help injured parties collect compensation for their medical bills, the cost of traveling to doctors appointments, etc.
When to Consult with Our Workers Compensation Attorneys
Because Colorado has a “no fault” workers compensation system, injured workers only need to prove that their injury was incurred in the course of doing their job – and not that the employer’s negligence played a role in causing the injury. This means that workers who have sustained any of the following injuries while on the job will more than likely have a legitimate workers compensation claim:
- Car or truck accident-related injuries
- Electrocutions and burns
- Lung or eye injuries due to exposure to toxic chemicals
- Injuries related to falls
- Joint injuries, such as wrist or ankle injuries
- Loss of limbs and amputations
- Neck, back and knee injuries
- Psychological and emotional injuries
- Repetitive stress injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
- Traumatic brain injuries and other head injuries
