Colorado Workers’ Compensation Attorneys

Colorado Workers’ Compensation Overview – Burg Simpson

Denver Workers Compensation Attorney Overview - Burg Simpson

Every year, on average, 112 workers die on the job in Colorado – that’s one workplace fatality every three or four days. Thousands more suffer workplace injuries. While there are some things about work comp claims we’ve come to expect, such as the fact that health care workers are much more likely to get sick on the job, other facts are a little more surprising. For example, you’re much more likely to get hurt as a result of fatigue than at the hands of a violent co-worker. In fact, overexertion and falls account for more than $25 billion in workers’ compensation costs nationwide – and nearly half of all claims. A Burg Simpson Colorado workers comp attorney is here to help!

When accidents happen, it’s the employer’s responsibility to take care of their employees and their families. Unfortunately, that’s not always what happens. Employers and insurance carriers often hide behind dozens of litigators to protect them from keeping their promises and paying your claim in a fair manner. It doesn’t help that navigating the Colorado workers’ compensation claims process can be a daunting task, even when you’re not recovering from an injury or mourning the loss of a family member. There’s nothing easy about the entire process. It’s like working your way through a maze without a map, while the clock is ticking.

At Burg Simpson, our experienced, award-winning team of Colorado workers comp lawyers have been fighting for injured workers and their families for more than 40 years.

If you’ve been injured while on the job, or lost a loved one to a workplace accident, it’s absolutely critical that you reach out  to our Colorado workers compensation attorneys at Burg Simpson immediately. There are several factors that can alter your case for a claim, such as the severity of your injury, and the circumstances surrounding the incident. But the most important aspect of your case, which can often determine the success or failure of a claim, is the timing. It’s crucial you act quickly. Time starts running out on your ability to file a successful claim as soon as you’re injured. You may hear from litigators representing your employer, their insurance company, company supervisors, and others. It’s essential you talk to someone who will look out for your best interests before that happens to help you understand your rights and fight for them.
