Fall Hazards are the Cause of Many Employees Being Injured at Work

Did you fall at work?

Did you suffer significant injury leading to a leave of absence?

Are you having trouble paying your medical bills?

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), “floors and flooring materials contribute directly to more than 2 million fall injuries each year.” In Colorado, you’re eligible to file for workers’ compensation benefits if you get injured because of a fall at work.
