What is the timeline for filing a workers' compensation claim?

Injured workers in Denver are often urged to take action as soon as possible if they want to claim benefits.

Denver area retail employees injured on the job during robbery

There are many ways in which Denver residents may find themselves injured on the job. From slip-and-fall accidents, to burns, to crush injuries or repetitive stress injuries, any job site can be the scene of a workplace accident.

Did you suffer a workplace injury in a health care setting?

From the outside, a casual observer may not think of a health care setting as a particularly dangerous place to work: It's not a crab fishing vessel on the Bering Sea, and medical attention is close at hand.

Why do so many nurses get hurt on the job?

Any Denver resident who has ever spent time in a hospital knows how valuable and important nurses are to the functioning of a medical center. They provide direct care to many patients throughout their shifts, maintaining the courses of treatment prescribed by the patients' doctors and monitoring those under their care for changes in their health and wellness. Nurses are on the front lines of providing ailing individuals with the support they need to improve, and unfortunately, all of that attention often results in injuries and harm to nursing professionals.

Nurses with work-related injuries may have rights to compensation

Individuals who enter the nursing profession often do so out of a desire to help others and serve those who are in need.

Nurses are medical professionals who work long hours and perform difficult tasks so that others may feel better and recuperate from their ailments.
