Workers Compensation Claims for Illnesses Can Be Challenging, But it’s Worth the Fight

Colorado Workers Compensation Attorneys

Has your health been compromised due to where you work?

Are you unsure about your health coverage?

Do you have a plan in place to take care of your family in case you get sick and can’t work?

Firefighters suffering from severe cases of cancer have been a hot topic of concern lately. Preston L. Williams Jr., a lieutenant with the D.C. fire department who also suffers from cancer, shared his story in the Washington Post:

“Over a five-year period, Williams was diagnosed three times with prostate cancer. He said he believed he was sickened by the fumes and chemicals that leached into his skin and seeped into his lungs during his more than 20 years battling fires.

He testified in 2012. He died in February 2016, only months before the nation’s capital joined a growing number of jurisdictions stating that because certain cancers in firefighters occur at such high rates, they should be presumed to come from on-the-job exposure.

Laws in nearly 40 states, including Maryland and Virginia, have expanded medical, workers’ compensation and disability coverage for such cancer cases, and departments across the country are revamping training and how they handle gear to try to reduce risks.”

Our expert attorneys have helped many people who suffered from work-related illnesses get the assistance they need. Every case is different, so it’s important to hire an experienced attorney who helps people make sure their rights are protected. Do you work as a firefighter?  Let us fight for your rights!

"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."

"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."
