The construction industry in Colorado is booming. Many hard-working individuals report daily to busy construction sites. Here, the combination of a fast-paced work environment, heavy machinery, high and low voltage exposure, and high volumes of activity all make for an exciting but dangerous place to work. While OSHA and other federal and state regulations work to minimize and mitigate risks to construction workers, accidents and injuries do happen. What would you do if it happened to you?
Millions of construction workers become victims of serious injuries each year. The effects of these injuries can be short-term, long-term, permanent, or even fatal. It’s very important to receive proper treatment and medical care for even the most seemingly minor injuries right away in order to receive the proper compensation for your losses.
Workers Compensation Benefits
If you’ve suffered from a construction site injury, your employer’s insurance is required to cover both your initial and ongoing treatment. It’s important to have a good attorney on your side to fight for your right to medical treatment, wage compensation, and any disability benefits that you are entitled to. While a workers compensation insurer might not always have your best interests in mind, we will.
Third Party Claims
In many construction incidents, there are multiple parties at fault for a worker’s injuries. While negligence on the part of your employer may have contributed to your accident, it is not necessary that your employer or co-worker be negligent in order to make a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. Sometimes action or inaction on the part of other sub-contractors or workers on the construction site could be responsible for your injuries. In some cases, malfunctioning construction equipment or improperly marked hazards are the cause of a worker’s injuries. We can help you thoroughly investigate and research the entire accident in order to ensure that claims are brought against all those who contributed to your suffering.
Receive the Compensation You Deserve
When you or a loved one have been injured on the job, you have the right to receive care under your employer’s workers compensation policy. Having a team of workers compensation lawyers on your side will help you feel safe and protected as you seek compensation for your losses.
Never try to navigate the waters of construction work injuries or workers compensation claims on your own. We’ll do the hard work so that you can focus on healing and living a happy, healthy life.
