Truck driver fatally injured at work when struck by a trailer

Employees nationwide, including in Colorado, are entitled to coverage under the workers' compensation insurance system. Any worker who is injured while at work, even off-site, may pursue financial relief through worker' compensation. It is a no-fault system, so, regardless of who was at fault, those injured at work -- or families who have lost loved ones in workplace accidents -- may pursue benefits to assist with medical expenses and/or end-of-life costs, along with lost wages.
