Injury Claims Are Unique For Public Safety Workers
There are many hazards that can cause serious and life-changing injuries for public safety workers. Firefighters can suffer serious injuries due to smoke inhalation, falls from heights, burn injuries and other hazards. Police officers can suffer gunshot wounds and other life-threatening injuries in the course of their duties.
Anyone working in one of these high-stress positions is at risk of suffering post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in the aftermath of a traumatic event. The psychological scars can last a lifetime and make it difficult, if not impossible, for a person to return to work.
Our lawyers understand the unique risks public safety workers face as they put their lives on the line for us. We are committed to protecting their right to obtain fair and just compensation for the injuries they suffer in the line of duty. We can help you assess your options and seek compensation from government employers.
