Are you wondering which injuries are covered by workers’ compensation?

The Colorado workers’ compensation attorneys at Kaufman & Kaufman, LLC. want to ensure your rights are protected. While you’re recovering from your injuries, you should have an attorney handling your case.  

Here are some common injuries that are generally covered by workers' compensation in Colorado. Most of these injuries are mental injuries, physical trauma, and trauma caused by repetitive motions or an occupational disease:

  • Exposure to asbestos
  • Cancer 
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary disease
  • Broken bones
  • Fractures
  • Head injuries
  • Hernias
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Bulging discs

However, there are certain actions that may affect your case. According to the Colorado Division of Workers’ Compensation, benefits may be reduced if a workplace injury occurred under certain circumstances, including:

 

  • Injury resulting from the worker’s use of drugs or alcohol.
  • Failure of the worker to use a safety device.
