Injuries Stemming for Being Struck By or Striking an Object

Colorado workers' compensation attorney helps you obtain medical treatment and compensation for on-the-job injuries caused by flying and/or falling objects

Striking or being struck by an object can cause devastating injuries requiring extensive treatment and rest. In fact, strikes by or against objects account for nearly 13% of all workplace injuries and over $5 billion in direct costs annually according to Liberty Mutual's 2002 Workplace Safety Index.

If you're hit by a forklift while working in a warehouse or by a sledge hammer falling from scaffolding at a construction site, you're going to need extensive medical treatment and will most likely be out of work for awhile.

Too many times though, injured workers find difficulty in obtaining their rightful benefits. An experienced Colorado workers' compensation attorney helps injured workers and their families deal with the burdens of being injured on-the-job.

Especially without protection, injuries from being struck by a falling object or striking a stationary object can be fatal

Head injuries are especially prevalent in these types of workplace accidents, which can have many negative long-term consequences requiring extensive medical treatment and recuperation.

Having experienced representation on your side helps ensure you receive all of the medical, wage loss and permanent disability benefits afforded to you under Colorado law. Without an experienced workers' compensation attorney, it will be difficult to know if you're receiving the right amount of benefits.

Workers' compensation is a no-fault system so even if an accident is your fault, you are guaranteed a certain amount of benefits to treat your injuries and compensate you for lost time from work.

If you or a loved one has sustained an injury from an object strike, your Denver personal injury lawyers at the Babcock Law Firm can provide you with a free consultation. Contact Colorado workers' compensation attorneys at the Babcock Law Firm today to discuss your case.
