Honoring Fallen Workers
Workers’ Memorial Day is held on April 28, the same day the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) was founded in 1971. OSHA and other government agencies develop and enforce the rules employers must follow in order to keep the workplace safe for employees.
When an employee is hurt during the course of his or her job duties, that employee is generally entitled to workers’ compensation to help pay for medical treatment and offset the impact of lost wages. Unfortunately, insurance companies and employers can contest claims, depriving workers of the benefits they need and rightly deserve.
Colling Gilbert Wright & Carter has established itself as a commanding, dedicated voice for those hurt on the job. Our co-founding attorney Stewart Colling was passionate about protecting the rights of injured workers. In fact, he passed away suddenly on Workers’ Memorial Day in 2009. We honor Stewart’s legacy to this day by continuing to represent clients in workers’ compensation claims.
Every year Workers’ Memorial Day honors the people who died while trying to make a living. If you were hurt or a loved one was killed on the job, Colling Gilbert Wright & Carter would be proud to review your workers’ compensation claim and provide guidance on next steps.
