Union Law Firm Denver- Denver Work Comp Lawyers - Burg Simpson

At Burg Simpson, we are lawyers that represent union members throughout the State of Colorado. When an accident happens while on the job, it is important to have Colorado workers’ compensation lawyers committed to helping you as an injured worker obtain lost wages, medical benefits, and compensation you deserve. Workers’ compensation benefits are a kind of workmen’s insurance coverage that employers are required to offer employees after they have been hurt at work.

Our award-winning team of trial lawyers are committed to helping injured workers recover as fully as possible from their injuries. Private industry employers reported more than 3 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses in 2013, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics/U.S. Department of Labor

Filing a Workers’ Compensation claim is not easy, must be done within a certain amount of days, and the number of statues, rules, and guidelines can be confusing. Employers may even wrongfully put pressure on employees to return back to work too soon after an injury. Visit the Colorado Bureau of Workers Comp website for more information in the state of Colorado.
