First Responder Accidents – Legal Advocacy For Our Heroes

As a first responder, you stand as a guardian for our community every single day on the job. Your role – whether as a law enforcement officer, firefighter, EMT or paramedic – is more than a job; it’s a calling. You dash headlong into danger and uncertainty to rescue people. It’s your quick actions and steadfast courage that often make a life-or-death difference in those crucial moments. You are a hero in the truest sense.

When an accident or a mental health setback occurs due to the intense demands of your job, you deserve legal support that’s as dedicated as you are. We at Dowd & Corrigan, LLC, value the sacrifices you make and are here to support you in your time of need.

As workers’ comp lawyers with more than 70 years of collective experience, we have helped thousands of people like you throughout Nebraska and Iowa secure the compensation they deserve. We are staunch advocates for public servants who get injured on the job.

Common Risks And Injuries That First Responders Face

Your job as a first responder is a hazardous one, often exposing you to dangers such as:

  • Vehicle-related accidents while responding to emergencies or driving to work
  • Physical confrontations when working with the public or detaining individuals
  • Exposure to fires, chemicals and other dangerous substances
  • Traumatic events that have a significant mental health impact

We handle these and other accidents or injuries resulting from your tireless service on the job. You can rely on us for help pursuing workers’ compensation benefits and any third-party personal injury claims you may have. We are tireless advocates for injured first responders, handling all elements of workers’ compensation claims, helping clients address the challenges of claims and navigating the aftermath of common first responder injuries.

Workers’ Comp For Mental Health Issues

Mental health issues like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and crippling anxiety are real risks for first responders. You’re exposed to traumatic events day in and day out, and that takes a toll.

You may have grounds for a workers’ comp claim if you’re suffering from a mental health disorder that’s connected to your job. We are very familiar with these claims and the challenges they pose. You can count on us as skilled lawyers and advocates to present the strongest possible case for you.
