Every year, millions of people are injured at work. Thousands are killed in fatal on-the-job accidents. The costs add up quickly:

Medical care: Is the injured person getting the medical care necessary for recovery?

Physical therapy: Is there a need for on-going therapy to bring the injured worker
back to full capacity?

Lost wages: Will the injured person and the family be able to manage on reduced
or no earnings?

Disability: Will the injury result in a permanent disability that limits the worker’s
ability to return to the same job?

Retraining: Is there an opportunity to be retrained for another job?

If you have questions about your Colorado workers’ compensation rights, call (719) 635-5886

Does your employer deny that you were injured at work? Often with back injuries, repetitive stress injuries (such as carpal tunnel syndrome), or other serious injuries, an employer or insurance company will deny benefits even though such injuries are among the most common in the workplace.

Will your injuries prevent you from returning to work? The insurance company may decide that you have had enough time to recover. Have you? Our law firm can help you get objective tests and opinions that will establish your physical limitations and ability to safely return to work.
Are you getting the medical care you need? Were you assigned a doctor who does not understand your injuries? We can help you find the medical care you need and an objective opinion about your injury.
