Colorado Workers’ Comp For Warehouse Workers
Boxes and materials are stacked high in a warehouse. Warehouse worker injuries can be caused by falling materials, forklift problems, delivery truck problems and other accidents. It takes just a moment’s inattention or a slight change to a stack of materials to cause a dangerous accident.
You should know that no matter how the accident happened, if you work in a warehouse and have been injured on the job, you do not have to prove fault. You are entitled to the medical and wage benefits of workers’ compensation no matter how the accident happened. If anyone tells you differently, talk to an experienced workers’ compensation attorney.

- Workers’ compensation is no-fault insurance. That means that if you were injured at work, the fault does not matter. You are entitled to workers’ compensation no matter who or what caused the accident.
- In a warehouse, boxes and materials are often stacked high. When an object falls and hits a warehouse worker, that can cause serious back injuries and neck injuries.
- Forklifts and their loads are carefully balanced. If a forklift turns over, the driver and anyone nearby can be seriously injured.
- The dock area of a warehouse is busy and often dangerous as trucks are loaded and unloaded and merchandise is moved in and out of the area.
- Lifting, turning, pushing and pulling can cause knee injuries and back injuries to a warehouse worker.
