Denver Workplace Accident Lawyers
Work Injuries & Occupational Illnesses
When you consider the amount of time that the average working American spends on the job, it is easy to see why workplace injuries occur. Even in fields that require little to no manual labor, occupational injuries and illnesses are a possibility. The risk of harm is far greater in high-risk fields like construction, transportation, and manufacturing. An injured worker may face a future entirely changed by back injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, hearing loss, head trauma, brain injuries, burns, or other serious injuries.

Colorado Workers’ Compensation & Personal Injury Laws
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 may not be covered.
Filing a personal injury lawsuit may be the answer to recover full compensation after a workplace accident – if a third party (someone other than your employer or a co-worker) was at fault. Under Colorado Revised Statutes §§ 13-21-401 through 13-21-406, a product liability claim may be brought against the manufacturer of a defective product that is the cause of a workplace accident or injury. Sections 13-21-201 through 13-21-204 cover damages for death by negligence and may apply to fatal on-the-job accidents. Or, general negligence claims for work injuries may be covered by various parts of §§ 13-21-101 through 13-21-124.
Our Denver workplace accident lawyers understand exactly how Colorado statutes apply to different types and causes of on-the-job injuries and illnesses. We use this knowledge to file the right type of case and pursue the level of compensation that will actually make a difference as you work to rebuild and move on with your life.
