Colorado Workers' Comp Laws

Workers’ Compensation, sometimes referred to as “Workman’s Compensation” or “Workers’ Comp,” is the name given to a system of laws meant to protect injured workers. The goal is to make sure that if you are injured at work, you receive appropriate medical care, lost wages, and, if applicable, compensation for your permanent impairment now and in the future relating to your on-the-job injury.

When workers are killed on the job, members of the workers’ families are ordinarily eligible for benefits.

Workers’ compensation laws are designed to protect employees’ rights to compensation for injuries and illnesses sustained on the job, and each McDivitt Colorado Workers’ Compensation attorney will fight to make sure these laws are upheld.
