Work Injury Claims for Orange County Firefighters
Workers' Compensation Lawyers in Southern California
Firefighters often place themselves in dangerous situations that can result in both minor and major injuries. This is the nature of their job, and they make tremendous sacrifices to protect our community. When injuries occur while at work, these public servants both deserve and are legally entitled to collect worker's compensation as they recover. In the State of California, all firefighters are eligible for worker's compensation benefits, including apprentices, volunteers, and part-time employees.
Firefighters qualify for all types of worker's comp benefits, such as:
- Medical bills
- Partial lost wages
- Temporary and permanent disability
- Death benefits
What Types of Injuries & Illnesses Are Covered for Firefighters?
Due to the high-risk nature of the job, California law has been tailored to cover a wide range of injuries and illnesses for firefighters through worker's compensation.
This not only includes injuries sustained while fighting a fire, but through other daily activities at work as well, including training exercises, equipment maintenance, office work, and more. In addition to injuries that occur immediately while working, it also covers illnesses that occur due to working over a period of time, such as cancer, lung problems, heart conditions, tuberculosis, and pneumonia.
