Workers’ Comp Illness

Do you work in a field where your health could be compromised?

Are you unsure about your health coverage?

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

You’re not alone! Many other workers face similar problems.

If you’ve contracted an illness or a disease on the job, you may be eligible for worker’s compensation in Glenwood Springs or the Western Slope! Imagine the peace of mind you’ll have when you hand over your case to our team of experienced, competent lawyers!

According to the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, “for employees who are injured on the job or develop an occupational disease, this [workers’ compensation] insurance pays for medical expenses and partial wage replacement during periods of temporary disability.”

An occupational illness occurs when a worker becomes sick and the nature of that worker’s job could increase their suffering. It’s important to remember that there must be a clear connection between the job and the illness in order to be compensated.

The Colorado Division of Worker’s Compensation also says, “the health care provider shall prepare a diagnosis-based treatment plan that includes specific treatment goals with expected time frames for completion in all cases where treatment falling within the purview of the medical treatment guidelines continues beyond 6 weeks.”

Our expert attorneys have helped many people who suffered from work-related injuries 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.

If you have a question or concern about your claim for workers’ compensation in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, please call us at 970-945-2396 today to set up an appointment to discuss your rights. Your initial consult with our office is free!

"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."

"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."
