Although it may not be on many workers' minds when they go to work each day, the risk of suffering an injury while on the job is ever-present. When construction injuries occur, the workers injured may have a long road to recovery, which can keep them out of work for a substantial period of time. Although this process may be difficult, thankfully there are laws in place in Colorado that can assist the workers in receiving the treatment they need.
There are some people who are loved by everyone. Considered loyal, dependable, and fun to be around, they are the type of person one ever forgets meeting. While unexpected deaths are always tragic and shocking, it is perhaps more shocking when such a beloved person is killed. A great loss is felt today after such a man was killed in a workplace accident; an additional seven other people were harmed while working. The injured employees and the family of the deceased man, similar to Colorado workers, likely qualify for workers' compensation.
Colorado workers suffer a variety of injuries in the workplace each and every day.

While on the job, Colorado workers face a range of hazards. The dangers present within the workplace often revolve around the type of work done or the conditions in which one's duties are performed.
