pinnacol injured worker testimonials

Caring for over one million Colorado workers

Unbelievably smooth. First claim in 33 years and I was amazed.

My claim representative was polite, professional, available and a truly amazing individual.

THANK YOU ! Getting hurt at work was traumatizing, but the Pinnacol experience helped ease the stress.

— William, Pinnacol-covered injured worker

It was as painless as it could possibly be (the claims experience) very helpful in a bad situation.

My rep was concerned and cared about my well-being and care and my familial situation to make sure we were being treated fairly.

Thank you for making a bad situation better!

—Dale, Pinnacol-covered injured worker
The rep who handled my case did a great job. She made everything so easy and very comfortable for me. All I had to do was get my surgery and collect my check.

They were very professional and made me feel so at ease through that tough time.

—James, Pinnacol-covered injured worker

These providers have received special training in the care of work-related injuries and will treat you and manage any related follow-up care. If you choose your own doctor, it may result in medical benefits not being covered.
