Larimer County Workers' Compensation Lawyers for Construction Injuries

Larimer County Workers' Compensation Lawyers for Construction Injuries

Workers’ Comp Lawyers for Construction Site Accidents in Boulder County and Weld County

With dozens of heavy machines, vehicles, and many tons of building supplies, a construction site is a hazardous place to work, or even to just visit. In addition to the equipment and materials on site, there is also likely to be a large number of workers from many different contracting companies and other entities. Unfortunately, it is alarmingly easy in such an environment for a mere moment of carelessness or inattention to cause a serious injury in virtually no time at all.

Each year, thousands of construction workers and contractors are hurt in the course of doing their jobs on construction sites across the country. At Hoggatt Law Office, P.C., we understand the complex nature of construction accidents, and we are proud to help injured employees seek benefits under Colorado’s workers’ compensation laws.

Construction Workers and Workers’ Compensation in Colorado

According to Colorado law, employees who are injured on the job are generally entitled to collect workers’ compensation benefits for medical expenses, lost wages, total or partial disability, and occupational retraining if necessary. Work comp benefits could also include financial compensation to the surviving family members of victims who are killed in a workplace accident.

Construction injuries are often more complicated because many construction workers are classified as independent contractors by the companies for which they work. In some cases, this is merely an attempt to avoid paying out for workers’ compensation insurance and benefits and the worker in question should actually be considered an employee. Our attorneys will help you analyze your situation and the circumstances of your accident to determine the best course of action for moving forward. If workers’ compensation benefits are available, we will work with you in obtaining the proper medical care and filing your claim properly.

  • Structure or trench collapses;

You are a real person with real problems and real needs, and we will do everything we can to get you the benefits you need to get back to work as soon as possible.
