Workplace injuries do not discriminate. They happen throughout all sectors of employment to people of all ages. In Colorado last year, over 30,000 people filed workers’ compensation claims, with injuries ranging from spider bites to fractures all the way to death. No matter the severity, some of these injuries can lead to chronic pain, disability and suffering.

In the state of Colorado, all employers full or part-time employees are required to maintain workers’ compensation insurance. This covers any injuries and illnesses incurred during work and arising from a work-related task or function, no matter who is at fault for the incident. This protects workers and employers both from any potential legal battles. Injured workers are entitled to these benefits to be used for health care expenses, total or partial disability, a portion of lost wages, as well as death benefits.
Independent contractors, however, are not covered by workers’ compensation laws. In order to avoid getting insurance, some employers will designate employees as contractors instead. If you suspect this has happened to you, contact a top Fort Collins workers’ compensation attorney today.
