Beware of Other Drivers: No Workers Compensation Coverage While Traveling To & From Work!

Were you injured in an accident while traveling to or from work?

You may think your employer is liable for your injuries because if you didn’t have to go into work, maybe the accident wouldn’t have happened in the first place. However, in the state of Colorado, you must be on the clock or the time in question must have occurred while running errands for the sole benefit of your employer.

Were you performing employment duties? For example, dropping off mail, picking up a client, running an errand for your boss, picking up supplies for the office, or even parking in an assigned parking lot may fall under the category of acceptance for workers compensation coverage in the state of Colorado.

Most states follow the "while in the course of employment" rule. The rule basically states that regardless of an employee's physical location or the time of day she's injured, if performing assigned job duties, the injury is considered a work place accident and is covered by workers' compensation. While this rule seems clear, it remains the subject of thousands of legal disputes each year.
