If you are a firefighter or police officer operating in a municipality with 500,000 people or fewer and you are injured in the line of duty, you are covered under the same workers' compensation laws as everyone else. While Chicago has different workers' compensation rules for their police and firefighters, even the municipalities and suburban communities just outside the city center are handled under state regulations.
At Seidman Margulis & Fairman, LLP, we represent people who have suffered on-the-job injury. Our law firm helps injured workers, including police officers and firefighters, receive the workers' compensation benefits they are entitled to under the law.
Fighting To Recover Your Workers' Compensation
Law enforcement officers and firefighters take on risks in the line of duty every day. In the service of communities large and small, you work to protect others. If you have been injured, let our firm help you.
Our founding attorney, Steven J. Seidman, has been helping injured people recover needed compensation for nearly 30 years. We take on cases involving a wide range of injuries, which can include:
- Head injuries
- Back and spinal injuries
- Disabling injuries
- Orthopedic injuries and broken bones
- Joint injuries
Police officers and firefighters face risky and hazardous situations in their job duties. When injuries happen, the result can be a long road to recovery made more complicated by medical expenses and the financial challenge of lost wages. Let us work to help you resolve your workers' compensation issues so that you can focus on your physical recovery.
