Auto accident deaths surpass 40,000 in 2018

When drivers in Denver and throughout Colorado head out on the road, they know they will face dangers. Reckless drivers, distracted drivers, drunk drivers, drowsy drivers - all can place people in jeopardy of personal injury and death. However, the risks of the road are statistically worse than they have been in many years.

Law enforcement traffic injuries warrant workers' compensation

Law enforcement officers in Denver and throughout Colorado place themselves in harm's way as part of their job. They are the ones who go to the site of an accident to help those in need. In some cases, however, they are involved in an accident themselves as they go about their duties. Like any other job, workplace injuries can cause serious problems in an officer's life. When these accidents happen and an officer is injured on the job, it is important to understand the steps to get workers' compensation benefits.

Research indicates ELD regulations could increase crash risks

Since there are many trucks in Denver and throughout Colorado, it is a natural concern they could cause accidents. A crash with a truck can leave those in smaller, passenger vehicles with severe injuries or even fatalities. Federal regulators are constantly seeking ways to make the roads safer by implementing rules for truckers. One is requiring that all trucks have an electronic logging device installed. While this seemed to be a wise strategy to make the roads safer, a new study indicates that this has not happened and could, in fact, lead to other dangerous behaviors on the part of drivers.

Accident on forklift kills construction worker

Construction projects are a seeming constant in Colorado. With that, workers are required to use large vehicles, heavy equipment, complicated tools and be stationed at significant heights. Even lower-level construction projects have certain dangers. Injuries are common in this industry no matter how cautious workers are. Having legal assistance to investigate a case is fundamental to getting workers' compensation for injuries or workers' compensation death benefits.

Common injuries that health care workers should know about

Unfortunately, hospitals are among the most dangerous work environments across the country. Nurses, doctors and other health care workers risk their personal safety to provide the level of care their patients require. Health care workers risk many types of injuries that cause them to miss work, lose wages and draw on workers’ compensation benefits to help them manage until they recover enough to return to work.
