ATTORNEYS AT LAW
Due to the COVID-19 shelter-in-place mandate by State of Colorado we are still open as we are an essential business. However, we're closing our offices to the public for the next 3 weeks or until further notice and handling business via phone, email and fax. During this time, you can still report a worker's compensation claim. Be assured that we're here for you and will assist you as soon as we can.
Did you suffer from a workplace injury?
Are you having a hard time paying your medical bills?
Are you suffering from a spinal cord injury that left you unable to work and provide for your family?
The greatest risk for spinal cord injury is in the construction field, especially if you’re climbing ladders and scaffolding frequently. You’re exposed to many dangerous conditions as a construction worker. If you fall, you could suffer from a significant spinal cord injury as a result.
In addition, research has shown that male workers are at greater risk than their female coworkers. In the United States, roughly 20% of traumatic spinal cord injuries impact women and at least 80% impact men.
There are a variety of benefits and settlements for injured or ill workers that include but are not limited to:
Medical benefits: The insurer will cover the costs for most medical treatment you need while you’re recovering from an on-the-job injury or illness.
Lost wages: The insurer should pay 2/3 of your average weekly wage in most cases tax free.
Additionally, insurers may provide disability benefits for a workers’ compensation settlement if you have some type of permanent disability. Attorneys at our firm will also fight for your right to claim your settlement over a period of time, or in a lump-sum payment.
