These are just a handful of the injuries that can be related to work. If you are wondering if your injury is a result of your job, attorney Cliff Eley can help you. With more than 30 years of workers’ compensation experience in Colorado, he can provide you with a straightforward assessment of your case and help you pursue the benefits you need to recover from any type of injury.
How Do You Determine If An Injury Is Work-Related?
An injury is work-related if the injury occurred within the scope of your job. For example, if you work as a delivery driver and you are injured in a car accident while making a delivery for your job, then you would qualify for workers’ compensation coverage for any injuries from that accident. If, however, you were injured in a car accident while driving home after work, those injuries would usually fall outside of the scope of your job. There are some exceptions to this rule so you should consult with an attorney to make sure your rights are protected.
Determining the scope of your job can be complex. Sometimes, your job and your personal life overlap such as when you work from home. In these situations, we will work diligently to determine whether your injuries are work-related and help you pursue the coverage you need.
