Determining if an Injury is Work-Related

Colorado Workers Compensation Attorney

Is your injury work-related?

How can you prove it?

What can you do to improve your chances of a successful workers comp claim?

It can be a challenge, but it’s not impossible with the best worker’s compensation attorney on your side. Your odds increase when you have an attorney fighting for your rights in court. Our Colorado workers compensation attorney specializes in workers compensation benefits and take cases many other attorneys refuse.

Sometimes the accident and the resulting injuries are obvious: it’s clear the accident happened at work, and that the injuries were caused by the accident. However, in some cases, an employer or insurance adjuster may have doubts about how and where your injury happened. 

For example, if someone is a semi driver and is injured on the road in the course of a delivery, they may qualify for workers’ comp. But if someone is commuting from their home to work, they likely will not qualify for worker’s compensation benefits. Even if you’re attending a conference and are injured while traveling from the hotel to a work meeting, you may not qualify for workers’ comp benefits. That can still be considered a normal commute. 

Every case is different! Speak to an experienced worker’s compensation attorney today to learn your rights!

Appealing a decision can be intimidating.  

When you represent yourself, you could be out-maneuvered by the insurance company handling your claim. Don’t let them try to diminish your case when you know you’re not responsible for the accident that led to your workplace injury.

"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 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."
