The state of Colorado requires that all employers carry workers’ compensation insurance. If the employer does not carry workers’ compensation insurance, the business or the owner individually, can be penalized for failing to do so. The workers’ compensation system is generally a no-fault system, meaning that it typically does not matter whether the worker was injured because of his or her own actions or as the result of a co-worker or supervisor’s actions. Certain important exceptions can apply which can directly impact the injured workers’ benefits. Consultation with an experienced attorney can help to determine the impact of fault as it relates to a specific workers’ compensation case.
