Colorado Workers’ Comp For Construction Workers
Construction sites are chaotic work environments with many different activities going on at the same time. On most job sites, there are many different contractors and suppliers involved. Injuries are common, and they are covered by workers’ compensation.
If there is a discussion about whose fault the injury was, remember that workers’ comp is a no-fault system. Construction workers do not have to prove who was at fault to get their workers’ compensation benefits. If you need more information about your rights, talk to an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer.

- When scaffolds or ladders fail, the resulting fall can cause serious back injuries, broken bones and neck injuries.
- There are frequently dump trucks and delivery trucks on a construction site. These trucks may back over a worker or drop the loads they are carrying, injuring workers in the process.
- Temporary wiring can cause a tripping hazard or an electrocution hazard.
- Lifting heavy materials, lifting and turning at the same time, pushing materials into place can all cause injuries.
Because there are often many different subcontractors on a construction site, if someone other than your employer caused your accident, you may have a third-party liability claim that could provide a far greater recovery than a workers’ comp claim.
