Standing Up For Injured Police Officers
Most people don’t realize the dangers police officers face every day they come to work. Some of the common injuries include:
- Injuries from car accidents
- Insurers from assault
- Gunshot injuries
- Musculoskeletal disorders from physical exertion
- Foot injuries
- Back injuries from lifting people
- Stress injuries
We help injured safety officers obtain the compensation they deserve from workers’ compensation and, when needed, from Social Security Disability ( SSD). Our lawyers will guide you through the bureaucracy and paperwork to make sure your application is on track for success.
Workers’ compensation may be your only recourse to recover from on-the-job injury. There is a law in Georgia and other states that a public safety officer may not file a claim arising from the situation the officer was responding to. However, we will also explore the option to file a third-party liability suit, when your injury was clearly caused by another party’s negligence.
