Window washer could suffer permanent disability after fall

Like other people around the country, Colorado residents see people hanging from tall buildings to clean the windows, and they are thankful they do not have to do that job.

One of them is the possibility of contracting a virulent strain of staph bacteria (staphylococcus aureus) called MRSA (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus). This bacteria is transmitted from touching the skin of an infected person; it is highly contagious and is resistant to a number of antibiotics. Colorado workers who become infected by MRSA may be able to receive workman's comp benefits to help with medical costs and any wages lost if they are unable to work.
