COVID-19 Update: Hire Us from the Comfort of Your Own Home Details here

My supervisor says that I can’t get workers’ compensation because it was my fault that I got hurt. Is that correct?

No. Workers’ compensation is a no-fault insurance system, and your injuries should be covered even if you were at fault for the accident. However, according to the Colorado Division of Workers’ Compensation, your benefits may be reduced if the injury resulted from your use of drugs or alcohol, if you willfully failed to use a safety device, or if you willfully failed to follow safety rules that were reasonable, written and posted.
