Kaplan Morrell has a fifteen-year history of helping injured and disabled workers obtain the rights and benefits they are due under the workers compensation, social security disability, and employment laws of Colorado and the United States.
Workers Compensation Attorney
“My passion assisting and fighting for injured workers derives from a strong distaste for those who are always trying to take advantage of people who work hard and unfortunately get hurt. It is unacceptable to me that big business, behind the scenes and unbeknownst to the unsuspecting worker, preys on them and their families. In a system that takes advantage of injured workers, I make getting quality care and compensation benefits my top priorities…”
Workers Compensation & Disability Attorney
“The system is stacked against injured and disabled workers, so my job is tip the scales back in your favor. Even if you speak English, it is too easy to get lost in a system where employers, doctors, insurance adjusters and even friends give you too much and even conflicting advice. I am proud that I have been able to use my Mexican background, and fluency in Spanish to help my Latin American clients obtain their rightful benefits. I work hard so that all my clients understand the system, avoid costly mistakes, and stay focused on what is important – getting healthy and supporting their family.”
