Colorado Workers' Compensation

Government Workers – Colorado Workers Comp Lawyers

Government Workers - Denver Work Comp Lawyers - Burg Simpson

Public employees are as susceptible to accidents at work as any other office worker. They slip and fall. They hurt themselves by lifting or moving office supplies or equipment. They suffer from muscle strain from sitting and typing all day. If you’ve been hurt while performing the functions of your government job, our Colorado workers’ comp attorneys can help you today! Fill out a Free Case Evaluation form to talk with us at no charge, right now.

Depending on which level of government is involved, workers’ compensation can operate very differently however. Federal employees are covered by the federal government, for example. The Federal Employee’s Compensation Act covers federal employees disabled or killed as a result of an injury or disease “sustained while in the performance of duty.” The Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs manages federal benefits and helps injured employees in four categories:

  • Wage replacement benefits.
  • Medical treatment.
  • Vocational rehabilitation.
  • Other benefits.

Some federal employees fall under their own specialized programs, such as railroad workers, who are covered by the Federal Employer’s Liability Act. Most state and local employees, on the other hand, are typically covered by that state’s workers’ compensation law, like most private employees. If you’re a state or local employee and you’ve been injured while on the job, Burg Simpson’s Colorado workmans comp lawyers are here to help you! Call us before it’s too late.

We can help by walking you through the intricacies of the complex Colorado Workers’ Compensation Act. In addition, we’ll make sure you also get help:

  • Receiving fair compensation for injuries sustained on the job.
  • Accessing quality medical treatment and healthcare.
  • Receiving reimbursement for any workplace injury or related expenses.
  • Applying for additional Social Security benefits, if applicable.
  • Determining third-party personal injury lawsuit options if your injury was caused, at least in part, by someone other than your employer.
