Obtaining Compensation for an On-the-Job Auto Accident

Denver workers' compensation lawyers help you obtain treatment, wage loss and permanent disability benefits for injuries resulting from an on-the-job auto accident

Automobile accidents are some of the most common accidents out there and occur quite frequently across Colorado and the U.S. Many of these accidents involve someone who was on the clock when the accident occurred... meaning, they were driving to fulfill their job duties.

Many jobs require at least some level of driving, like traveling to a meeting, but some almost exclusively involve driving... your local UPS guy or a truck driver are a couple that come to mind.

If you're injured in an auto accident while on-the-job, you're entitled to Colorado workers' compensation benefits regardless of fault. But this fact can be obscured sometimes, which is why it's invaluable you hire an experienced Denver workers' compensation attorney to help you cut through the fog and obtain your benefits.

Automobile accidents can result in some of the most serious injuries whether you're on-the-job or not

Back injuries, broken limbs, broken bones and broken noses are just a few of the injuries that could happen. The more severe the accident, the more severe your injuries are likely to be.
