When you are injured or become ill at your workplace or during a work-related activity, regardless of whether the injury or illness occurred in connection with your job, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation. You are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits even in the absence of your employer’s fault or negligence.
I have helped workers get fair compensation for injuries and illnesses sustained in the workplace for more than 25 years. As a workers’ compensation attorney, I help workers in Littleton and throughout Jefferson, Denver, Arapahoe, and Broomfield counties obtain coverage for their workers’ compensation claims, including:
Accepting workers’ compensation limits your rights to other remedies against a negligent employer. A personal injury claim can include compensation for general damages and pain and suffering, whereas a workers’ compensation claim cannot. I am skilled in managing the interplay between your workers’ compensation claim and any parallel claim in civil court against a negligent party. This area of the law is complicated. The claims have to be managed properly to maximize the benefit to our client.
If your workers’ compensation claim is denied, you have a limited time to appeal the decision. I can help you successfully maneuver through the complex bureaucratic process of appealing to the Industrial Claims Appeal Office and the state appellate courts.
