Parking Lot Workers’ Compensation Cases

Colorado workers compensation attorneysAre you required to park in a certain parking lot or parking structure?

Were you injured in your designated parking lot while at work?

Are you having a hard time paying your medical bills?

In the state of Colorado, the property owner has a responsibility to keep the sidewalk clear and free of obstacles, but the person who's walking also has some responsibility for their own safety. If you slip and fall in your designated parking lot, your employer is most often responsible.

You may have a third party claim as well. For example, if you get into a car accident in a designated parking lot with another driver and suffer a severe injury, you may have a third-party claim. You may be able to sue the driver of the vehicle, as well as retain worker’s compensation benefits for lost wages as a result of having to take time off work.

If you have evidence to help support your claims, you have a better shot at proving your case and ultimately receiving the best settlement for your injury. However, are you afraid that even with a mountain of evidence your insurance company will cheat you out of what’s rightfully yours? You may need to speak with an experienced attorney about your rights!


Let us help you today! Call (970) 945-2396 now to schedule your FREE initial consultation with our Colorado workers’ compensation attorneys. Enter your location at the bottom of this web page to receive step-by-step directions.
