Is there any Colorado resident who reasonably believes that the state’s Workers’ Compensation Act makes for easy reading?
Of course there isn’t, and we suspect that many readers of our Denver workers’ compensation blog would justifiably conclude without even needing to see that compendium that it is jam packed with fine print and intricacies.
In fact, we note the obvious regarding state rules, regulations and processes focused upon on-the-job injuries, namely this: workers’ comp is a “complicated area of the law that has many pitfalls for the inexperienced.”
The central role of the Denver -based Eley Law Firm is to advocate with empathy, knowledge and persistence on behalf of workers in the Denver metro area and across the state who have suffered work-related accidents and injuries.
Candidly, those individuals need strong advocacy, and can depend only upon a proven and compassionate attorney who is always tasked with acting in their best legal interests.
That is certainly not the role played by workers’ comp insurers. We point out on a page of our website that chronicles our long-tenured advocacy of sick and injured employees that insurance companies often “can and will use [their specialized] knowledge against your interests unless you get the advice of an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer.”
Our principal attorney does not wear multiple hats in his role as a workers’ comp attorney. Cliff Eley does not represent a worker needing help in one instance and an employer and/or workers’ comp insurer in another.
The Eley Law Firm represents only ill and injured workers, and that has unwaveringly been the case from the firm’s inception. Mr. Eley has in fact been advocating exclusively on behalf of employees with workers’ comp claims for more than 30 years.
We welcome readers’ visits to our website, along with the opportunity to candidly respond to your questions and concerns relating to any aspect of a workplace accident or injury.
