Skilled Workplace Accident and Injury Attorneys in Colorado
At Springer & Steinberg, P.C., our leading workplace accident and injury lawyers in Colorado know that depending on the industry, work injury and fatality causes will differ, as some jobs hold more risks than others.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, which records both nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses and fatal workplace injuries, 2.7 million workers were injured in private industry jobs last year throughout the country.
In addition, there were 4,764 fatal occupational injuries over the same period, including 78 that occurred in Colorado workplaces.
While transportation incidents remained the most frequent type of fatal event, accounting for 37% of all work-related fatalities, there is seemingly no end to the ways workers can get hurt on the job when negligence is a factor.
That is why we are here.
While we hope you never need us, our devoted legal advocates work diligently to outline each of our client’s vulnerable positions, so the insurance companies are fully aware of how their injuries have affected their day-to-day lives and overall well-being, so we can pursue the financial outcome they deserve.

Who Can I Pursue My Colorado Workplace Injuries?
A workplace accident may be compensable under product liability, workers’ compensation, wrongful death, or general negligence laws in Colorado.
While workers’ compensation provides automatic benefits for wage loss and medical care for work-related injuries regardless of fault, this only covers a portion of lost wages.
Additional compensation for emotional trauma, ongoing care, or other expenses is usually not covered at all, meaning you could be left paying for a significant portion of your injury expenses out of pocket.
In some cases, the legal solution to our client’s financial recovery options may be to file a personal injury lawsuit to recover full compensation after a workplace accident if a third party, not counting their employers or coworkers, was at fault.
In other cases, a product liability claim may be brought against the manufacturer of a defective product that is the cause of a workplace accident or injury.
Our Colorado personal injury attorneys understand each applicable component of our Colorado statutes and how they apply to the different types and causes of on-the-job injuries and illnesses.
Our knowledge, experience, and resources allow us to file the right type of case and pursue the maximum level of compensation owed to our clients, so they can get their lives back.
