Workplace Safety is More Than Having Procedures in Place!

Do you feel your workplace took the necessary precautions when it came to your safety?

When you were hired, was there a fair explanation about employee safety?

Did you feel safe at work before your injury?

It’s easy for a business to come up with a set of rules and procedures, but ensuring that employees follow through is the supervisor’s job. If a supervisor deviates from an established set of safety instructions, they’re putting workers at risk. It may not seem like a big deal at the time, but it may increase the number of injured workers and fatalities over time if procedures aren’t followed.

If you failed to follow safety regulations on the job, you’re still entitled to workers compensation.
According to Colorado laws, certain actions will result in a 50% reduction in compensation, so it’s important to consult with an attorney first! 

When you hire the experienced lawyers of Kaufman & Kaufman, LLC to represent you, you’ll be getting the quality representation and compassion you deserve. When you’re injured, the last thing you want to worry about is whether your family will be taken care of while you’re not working.

Don’t let the stress of missing work due to an injury or illness keep you from getting your compensation! To learn about the benefits you’re entitled to and how you can make sure you get them, fill out the information form on our site or call us at (970) 945-2396. You can schedule a free confidential meeting to talk with one of our experienced Glenwood Springs workers’ comp lawyers and plan your strategy. No fees unless you win!
