Have You Been Injured on the Job or in the Line of Duty?

Although Colorado workers’ compensation insurance covers most employees for a job-related injury, full benefits may be difficult to obtain. If you have been injured on the job or in the line of duty, you can count on Burg Simpson’s Colorado workers’ compensation attorneys to handle your claim. Our experienced and compassionate attorneys are concerned about your recovery and will help you obtain medical treatment, lost wages, and benefits.

When You Are Injured at Work

Report your accident immediately and let your employer know that you have been injured. If you do not report your injury within four days of the incident, you may lose rights to Workers’ Compensation benefits.

Retaining a Workers’ Compensation Attorney

Due to the complexity inherent in Colorado’s workers’ compensation system and the ease with which a non-attorney can mishandle a claim, the attorneys at Burg Simpson recommend that you obtain legal representation to handle your workers’ comp case.

You will not pay any fees upfront when you retain a workers’ compensation attorney. Hiring a lawyer will not cost you more, but being legally represented may get you more.

To make an appointment to talk to an attorney about your work-related injury, you can schedule a free consultation to discuss the details of your case by calling us at (303) 792-5595 or fill out a case evaluation form online.
