Firefighters injured battling Colorado wildfire

The recent outbreak of wildfires in northeast Colorado is not only damaging property, but also causing injury to those who are tasked with fighting them. By March 19, the wildfire was fully contained, but three firefighters were injured on the job while battling the blaze. They are now receiving treatment and may be eligible to receive workers' compensation benefits.

Colorado man killed in workplace accident

Depending upon the nature of the employment, workplace accidents can be devastating and even fatal in some cases. Workers' compensation benefits may be available to the families of deceased victims, and the benefits may be able to assist them with funeral costs and other expenses. Unfortunately, that may be of little consolation to the family of a 56-year-old employee who recently perished in a workplace accident.

Denver police officer injured on the job

Officers frequently put their lives on the line for the safety and well-being of the public. Engaging in potentially dangerous activity is part of their job description, and when an officer is injured on the job, he or she may be entitled to receive workers' compensation benefits under Colorado law. Those benefits may prove to be of vital importance to one Denver police officer who was struck by a suspected drunk driver in late February.

Workers' compensation may be available in 3-vehicle accident

An ambulance crew was injured recently following a three-vehicle accident on U.S. 50 east of Avondale, Colorado. The accident itself remains under investigation, but regardless of the outcome of that investigation, the ambulance crew may consider filing for workers' compensation benefits. Such benefits are typically available when employees are injuring during the course of the employment, as appears to be the case here.
