Construction workers, contractors vastly underreport injuries

When a construction worker is injured at a Denver job site, he or she should be able to report his or her injuries and apply for workers' compensation. Just like any other profession, construction workers fall under the general rules and regulations protecting Colorado employees from injuries, and compensate them if they do become injured. Determining whether someone may qualify for workers' compensation and navigating the system, however, often takes the assistance of an experienced workers' compensation attorney.

Lump-sum injury settlements facilitate return to work

When a Colorado employee is injured, he or she may apply for benefits that cover his or her medical bills and other expenses. For some time, it has been a topic of debate as to whether lump sum injury settlements in workers' compensation expedite or hinder the process of getting back to work after an injury. Some claim that receiving a large sum of money can have a delaying effect because employees feel provided for and attaining income is less urgent.
