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.
