Injuries Covered by Worker’s Compensation in Colorado

Colorado Workers Compensation Attorneys

Can’t make your mortgage payment this month because of medical bills stacking up?

Are you afraid you don’t know where your next paycheck is coming from?

Are you worried you’re not eligible for workers compensation because of the type of injury you sustained?

According to the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE), “employers must provide workers’ compensation coverage for their employees. This insurance provides benefits for workers who are injured in on-the-job accidents or who develop occupational illnesses. With very few exceptions, regardless of who caused the accident, any work-related injury is covered by workers’ comp.” Examples of workers’ compensation-covered injuries include:

  • Overexertion injuries
  • Injuries from falling objects
  • Slip or trip and fall injuries
  • On-the-job vehicle accident injuries
  • Machine entanglement injuries
  • Repetitive motion injuries

However, there are certain actions that may affect your case. According to the Colorado Division of Workers’ Compensation, benefits may be reduced if a workplace injury occurred under certain circumstances, including:

  • Injury resulting from the worker’s use of drugs or alcohol.
  • Willful failure of the worker to use a safety device.
  • Willful failure of the worker to obey a reasonable, written and posted safety rule.
