If you’ve been injured on the job, you’re going to be needing the experience of our workers’ compensation attorneys in Pueblo, Colorado.
Here is a list of reasons why you’ll be needing our services:
- According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, over 5,000 on-the-job injuries happen per year. Whether it be that you’re exposed to hazardous conditions as a result of the nature of your job (i.e., you work with hazardous materials), or whether it be that you’re the victim of a so-called “freak accident,” you’ll need proper representation if you’re injured on the job.
- When you’re injured on the job, you’re only going to have one focus: getting better. But “getting better” requires paying medical expenses, taking time off of work to get treatments, and losing wages. The goal, then, of workers’ compensation is to provide workers with the proper financial assistance to cope with the fallout of the injury.
- Workers’ compensation is the exclusive avenue for employees to obtain protection from the fallout of workplace injuries. For 100 years — since the Colorado assembly passed the Colorado Workers’ Compensation Act in 1915 — employees have relied on this act to protect them. However, without the assistance of experienced workers’ compensation attorneys, injured employees will not be able to get the proper compensation.
