The snow and cold have invaded Colorado and winter has set in, particularly in the mountains. Winter can be a dangerous time for Colorado’s workers, and the Denver worker’s compensation lawyers in the Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya want to remind you to take extra care and be safe in your workplace.
The next few months can be a time when workplace accidents happen. If you work outside, snow and ice can make a worksite a dangerous place. Slipping and hurting yourself are a real possibility. Many people don’t realize it, but if you slip and injure yourself while you’re at work – even in the parking lot – your injuries likely are covered by worker’s compensation.
Or maybe you’re someone who travels the city streets and county roads for work – delivery drivers, nurses visiting patients in their homes or even just running a work-related errand for the boss, for example. If you’re involved in a crash and are hurt, work comp likely covers you, in addition to automobile insurance coverage.
Even when workers take every available precaution, though, accidents can happen. Work comp cases can be complex, especially in cases where you’re injured while driving on the job. A skilled Colorado worker’s compensation attorney is a must. If you or a loved one or friend are hurt at work, give me a call at (303) 758- 4777 or contact me at DLS@dlslawfirm.com. We’ll sit down and talk about your circumstances and your options.
The visit is free. And remember – if we take your case, we don’t get paid until you get paid.
