Colorado Workers' Comp Coverage
All public and private employers in Colorado, with limited exceptions, must provide Workers’ Compensation coverage (insurance) for their employees if one or more full or part-time persons are employed. A person hired to perform services for pay is presumed by law to be an employee. This includes all persons elected or appointed to public sector service and all persons appointed or hired by private employers for remuneration. In Colorado, this is the only disability insurance employers are required to offer by state law.
If you suffer an injury or illness on the job, you may file for benefits under the workers’ compensation law of Colorado. If you need help filing a workers’ compensation claim, contact the experienced Colorado Workers’ Compensation lawyers at McDivitt Law Firm.
What Types of expenses does Workers’ Compensation Cover?
- Medical care from the injury or illness and associated expenses
- Replacement income or disability pay
- Compensation for any permanent injuries
- Benefits to survivors of workers who are killed on the job
