Drunk driving accident seriously injures motorcyclist

In Denver and across Colorado, it is important that drivers of conventional vehicles and motorcyclists share the road as vigilantly as possible to make certain of everyone's safety. Given their vulnerability, a motorcyclist can suffer serious injuries in any crash. These incidents are made worse when it is a drunk driving accident. It is exponentially worse if the driver did not have proper insurance. Drivers who are under the influence will be lacking in judgment and reaction time, leaving them little opportunity to stop when they come across a motorcyclist. For the rider, having legal assistance is crucial to pursue compensation in a legal filing.

Longer work hours can take a physical toll

Whether you work in an industry that traditionally comes with long hours, such as trucking, or you have made a habit of regularly picking up overtime, you could be putting your health and safety, as well as that of others, at risk. You and other Colorado residents who put in long hours may enjoy the extra income, but there are some important things you should know about working longer than 40 hours per week.

What is the workers' compensation law for notifying employers?

Colorado workers who are injured in a workplace accident will have many concerns in the aftermath of the incident. While their primary concern should be getting medical treatment as quickly as possible and seeking to get better, they must remember that there are certain reporting requirements to ensure they get their workers' compensation benefits. Failure to adhere to the law can negatively impact a workers' compensation case and prevent the worker from getting the maximum benefits in a timely fashion. When there is a problem with anything related to workers' compensation, having legal help is imperative.

Bus-truck accident injures both drivers in Colorado

Some of the most difficult auto accidents in Denver and across Colorado involve a truck and a bus colliding. These can lead to a significant impact with the potential for injuries and fatalities. In this type of wreck, the investigation is key. Both parties must make certain to protect their interests so they can consider a legal filing for compensation.

Distracted driving in Colorado still an issue

Distracted driving accidents are on the rise, even though new technology in cars and phones aims to curb it. In 2017, Colorado authorities attributed 40 crashes a day to distracted driving. The largest age group susceptible to this type of accident is the 21-30 range accounting for 29.3 percent of all at-fault crashes in the state between 2012 and 2015.

Workers' compensation and independent medical examinations

When a Denver worker is injured on the job, there will be an expectation that workers' compensation benefits will be available to cover their lost wages as they recover, pay for medical care and help them make ends meet, until they can return to work. In some instances, the worker might not even be able to return to work. Regardless, there are certain factors that might be important in a claim.

When is an off-site injury work-related?

When considering whether workers' compensation insurance will cover your injury, you may find the term "workplace accident" misleading. Do not assume an incident is not work-related just because it happened when you were off the clock or somewhere other than the place where you work.
