We Give Injured Construction Workers a Voice

Construction-related injuries impact both your health and your livelihood. When you are hurt on the job, you endure physical pain and fear about the future. At the Klibaner Law Firm, we help hard-working Colorado construction workers obtain compensation for their injuries. In many cases, the benefits you receive from Workers’ Compensation aren’t enough to cover your injuries and pain. You should not have to bear the financial and emotional cost of these injuries alone. We are strong
advocates for the injured, and we will work with you to obtain the damages you need to heal.

Construction Accident Injuries

Construction employees work long, hard hours. Most of the time, they work on cluttered, hazardous job sites surrounded by heavy, dangerous equipment. It’s no surprise that construction-related injuries are typically severe. At the Klibaner Law Firm, we handle all types of construction accident injuries, including those related to:

  • Scaffolding
  • Falling objects and equipment
  • Amputations
  • Slips and falls
  • Defective equipment
  • Equipment failures and malfunction
  • Injuries related to construction debris
  • Height-related injuries

When Workers’ Compensation Isn’t Enough

Because construction accidents impact the victim’s physical and financial well-being, they are
particularly devastating. When work-related accidents happen, Colorado construction workers must turn to Workers’ Compensation benefits to cover the cost of their medical bills and lost wages. Most are shocked and confused to learn that the employment laws in our state favor employers. Even worse, Workers’ Compensation benefits in Colorado don’t cover damages related to pain and
suffering.

This is why it’s crucial to contact a Colorado personal injury attorney as soon as you are injured. Some victims, such as independent contractors, non-employees, and construction workers injured by
defective products, have the option to file their own personal injury claim outside the Workers’
Compensation system.

Third-Party Injury Claims

In some cases, work-related injuries are caused by someone other than an employer. Although Colorado prohibits workers injured on the job from suing their employers, it may be possible to file suit against the third party responsible for your accident. At the Klibaner Law Firm, we determine whether the individual who caused your injury has insurance coverage to pay for your medical bills and other damages. If a third-party injury claim is available, we can help you file a personal injury lawsuit in addition to helping you find a highly skilled Workers’ Compensation attorney to pursue benefits on your behalf.
