Police Officers Face Unique Risks on the Job

For police officers, danger is part of the job. In California, workers’ compensation benefits are available to police officers who are injured at work. They may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, disability, travel to and from doctor’s appointments, and other injury-related expenses.

Police officers may suffer a variety of injuries, such as:

  • Gunshot wounds
  • Muscle sprains and strains
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Lacerations and stab wounds
  • Puncture wounds
  • Spinal cord injuries

These injuries could require expensive medical treatment, therapy, and time off of work. It is important to file a workers’ compensation claim as soon as possible, and to gather evidence for your case. This may include witness statements, pictures or videos of the incident, medical records, and other documentation. Workers’ compensation coverage is not available for injuries caused by factors outside of work. This means, if you suffer an injury while on vacation with your family or while you are off duty, you may not be able to receive workers’ compensation.

If your police department or the insurance company disputes or denies your claim, it is important to have a knowledgeable lawyer by your side. In some cases, the insurance company may say that your injuries did not actually occur while you were performing work duties. We will tenaciously fight on your behalf as you seek the financial relief you deserve.
