However, one teacher who is claiming a fall at work led to her being denied benefits for workers' compensation possibly does not feel respected by her former employers. After she was denied her claim, she alleges she was wrongfully terminated for fighting that decision. While this teacher lives and worked in another state, workers in Colorado may benefit from following this case.

This ruling could potentially impact employees everywhere, including those in Colorado.
