Avoiding Common Workplace Injuries in Colorado

Colorado workers compensation attorneys

Is your job dangerous?

Are you at high risk for suffering a workplace injury?

Do you do a good job following safety instructions at work?

Accidents happen, so it’s important to make sure you’re aware of how to avoid common workplace injuries. To help avoid injury, follow this advice:

  1. Be aware of your surroundings and take precautions to avoid dangerous situations. You should also make sure you’re physically fit enough to do the job, and know how to properly use any safety equipment that’s required.
  2. Always follow the safety instructions provided by your employer, and don’t hesitate to talk to your supervisor or employer about any questions or concerns. 
  3. Take regular breaks and stretch your muscles. You can also use ergonomic equipment, such as wrist braces and foam pads, to help reduce strain.

The most common types of workplace injuries include back strain and injury, ankle sprain, repetitive stress injuries, and exposure to hazardous materials.

If you’re suffering from delayed pain after a work accident, you should tell your doctor. It’s extremely important to note these symptoms in your first medical record for potential workers’ compensation benefits, especially if you have a fight on your hands with the insurance company.  In addition, it’s also extremely important to continue to describe your pain and discomfort in connection to the work injury at every medical visit thereafter.

"Kaufman and Kaufman was extremely professional in my case. They set appointments as often as I requested which was often weekly or more. They handled all the problems that came up and ended up settling my case for more than I expected. I was very happy with the result."

"I’ve known the folks at Kaufman and Kaufman for more than 30 years. Correct - I said 30 years. The Kaufman’s have *always* done the right thing, especially when it’s not easy. Trust, in 2022, is hard. Trusting the Kaufman’s, in 2022, is simple."

- Jeff W. (2022)

"Kaufman and Kaufman represented me in a workman’s comp case and I couldn’t be happier with their service. They were very professional and gave me the personal service I was relying on. I hope I never get in that kind of situation again but if I do the Kaufman’s would be the firm I’d call. I highly recommend them."

- Erik (2022)

"Couldn't have asked for a more compassionate and thorough legal representation! Matt was so patient in taking the time to explain everything. The entire staff was incredible. I felt bolstered and validated throughout. I would recommend K&K to anyone going through a dark time with a debilitating injury.. they truly do care about their clients."

- Jessica C. (2022)

"The Kaufmans are a family owned firm that I highly recommend! They have always acted with integrity and intent to help people as best they can. You can trust them and I have dealt with the Kaufmans for a number of years now."

- JB (2022)

"The Kaufman team is very professional and knowledgeable about the work comp laws . They guided me in every step of the process, and if I ever have to do this again , they would be my first call. Without them i wouldn't have been able to pay my bills, and provide for my family. Thanks again to Kaufman and Kaufman for allowing my family to survive."
