Representing People Who Save Lives
For first responders, the process of returning to work after an injury includes passing minimum standards of physical requirements. A permanent disability can prevent a return to work in your previous job. In these cases, injured workers may need vocational training and/or additional compensation to make up for a reduction in income.
Injuries common to first responders include cumulative trauma injuries and traumatic accident injuries such as:
- Joint injuries to shoulders, knees, ankles
- Back and spinal cord injuries
- Head and brain injuries
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Broken bones
- Severe lacerations
These types of injuries can be the result of accidents and incidents on the job, including:
- Work-related vehicle accidents
- Gunshot, knife and assault wounds
- Burns and smoke inhalation
- Lifting heavy objects
- Falls and falling objects
- Structural collapse
By investigating the cause of your injury, we can determine whether a third party was responsible. Third-party injury claims can provide damages in addition to your workers’ comp benefits.
