Police Officer Injury Worker's Compensation Lawyers
Who is eligible for workers' comp benefits and what injuries are covered?
Working to protect public safety, the job of a police officer involves facing an enormous amount of risks every day. Because of the dangerous nature of their work, worker's compensation laws have been put in place to help officers pay for medical expenses and recover when serious injuries or illness occur. In the State of California, apprentice, volunteer, part-time, and full-time police officers are all covered under worker's compensation. These employees may be eligible to collect benefits that will help them pay off medical bills from their injuries, compensate for lost wages, pay for disability, and even provide support for their families in the case of death.
- Some examples of illnesses and injuries covered under worker's compensation for police officers are:
- In-the-field injuries, such as bullet wounds
- Injuries sustained during training
- Injuries sustained performing office work
- Illnesses and diseases due to job conditions, such as heart conditions, hernias, or cancer
You Only Pay Us if You Recover Compensation
In short, both injuries that are suffered due to an isolated incident and those that are caused by repetitive exposure or movement from a job condition over time are covered under worker's compensation.
