Denver Construction Lawyers for Platform Accident Injuries
On construction sites, platforms and lifts are essential equipment for workers in all trades. Framers, electricians, plumbers, HVAC technicians, drywall installers, painters and others all routinely use constructed platforms and platforms on hydraulic lifts, often spending hours at a time perched high above the ground below.
Like ladders and scaffolding, working on platforms involves several potential safety risks. Falls are perhaps the most common (and also among the most dangerous), but injuries from coworkers, falling objects, flying debris, and inability to escape a dangerous worksite are serious concerns as well. If you were injured working on a platform, you deserve to be compensated, but to protect your rights you need experienced legal representation on your side.

What Do I Need to Know After a Platform Accident?
Many construction workers are surprised to learn just how complicated their injury claims can be. If you were hurt in a platform accident, here are five key pieces of information you need to know:
- Workers’ Compensation Isn’t What Most People Think It Is. While workers’ compensation provides “no-fault” benefits for job-related injuries, (i) these benefits are limited, and (ii) many employers and insurance companies have policies and procedures designed to make it exceedingly difficult to recover the benefits you deserve. As a result, injured workers need legal representation to maximize their workers’ compensation benefits and pursue alternate sources of financial recovery.
- In Colorado, You Need to See Your Employer’s Designated Medical Provider. In order to claim workers’ compensation, the general rule in Colorado is that you need to see your employer’s designated medical provider. If you see your own doctor without authorization, not only might your workers’ compensation claim be denied, but you may also find that your treatment isn’t covered under your health insurance policy.
- You Only Have a Limited Amount of Time to Take Action. Workers’ compensation claims and personal injury claims are both subject to strict timelines. If you wait too long to take action, you could lose your legal rights.
- Not All Accident Law Firms are Alike. When seeking compensation for a construction site injury, you need to make an informed decision about your legal representation. At Levine Law, we have decades of injury law experience, we have recovered millions in compensation, and we have received the highest possible ratings from our clients and peers.
- You Only Pay if We Win. At Levine Law, we handle all cases on contingency. This means that you pay nothing out of pocket, and you pay nothing at all unless we win your case. We stand behind our work, and we want you to know that we only have your best interests in mind.
