Denver Workplace Injury Attorneys
Workman’s compensation offers critical security to employees who’ve been hurt on the job. But if you’re hurt at work, it’s important to know your rights beyond what your boss might tell you.
Getting hurt at work is difficult enough — you’re hurt, you can’t work and you’re worried about paying the bills. Bringing insurance companies and lawyers into the mix only makes things more complicated. Some might say it’s adding insult to injury. But if you’ve suffered an on-the-job injury, make sure you contact a lawyer like someone from the Lamber Goodnow injury law team and our partner firms throughout Colorado. By reviewing your injury as well as your workman’s comp policy, we can help outline all of your rights.
Beyond Workman’s Comp
While a significant portion of workplace injuries fall under the umbrella of safety that workman’s comp provides, the fact is that not all on-the-job injuries are the same. Generally, workman’s comp covers your injury — and in turn, removes your right to pursue a claim through other avenues.
But if someone else’s negligence caused your injury, the situation might be different. If, for example, you were using heavy machinery that malfunctioned, you might be able to pursue a product liability claim against the manufacturer, as well as receive your workman’s compensation. That’s why you need an attorney.
Liability and Negligence
It’s also important to know that workman’s comp doesn’t just give employers the right to have their employees hurt at work. If your injury on the job happened because of persistent negligence by your employer, you might have a claim as well.
We’ll ask you about these types of factors:
- How you were trained
- How your facility is maintained
- Whether there’s a history of accidents at your workplace
- Whether you or a coworker has notified your employer of a safety issue that wasn’t addressed
Based on the information you provide, we might be able to prove that your accident was caused by someone else’s negligence — and that they’re ultimately liable for your injuries.
