Understanding Workers' Compensation in Colorado

Workers' compensation is a no-fault insurance in Colorado that is paid for by employers. Most companies in Colorado are required by law to pay for this coverage for their employees. Workers’ comp is designed to protect employees like you when accidents or injuries occur on the job. It offers comprehensive coverage that includes:

  • All necessary medical expenses related to the workplace injury, including doctor visits, hospital stays, surgeries, medications, rehabilitation services, and required ongoing medication care.
  • Wage replacement benefits to help cover a portion of your lost income during your recovery.
  • Disability benefits to compensate for the lasting impact on your ability to work in the event of a permanent disability.
  • Vocational rehabilitation services to help you train for a new occupation, if your injury leaves you unable to return to your previous job.

In most cases, workers’ compensation benefits pre-empt the need for a legal claim in Colorado. If your injuries were caused by a third-party, such as a manufacturer who made unsafe work equipment, you may have an additional civil claim.

After suffering an injury at work, you may want to speak with the workers’ compensation attorneys at Flaxman Law Group to find out whether you can seek benefits in your case. Your initial consultation with our Denver office is free of charge and comes with no obligation. Just call us at 970-999-0530 for your free accident consultation.
