An Experienced Geneva Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Fighting For Police Officers And Firefighters

Police officers and firefighters are the key personnel in emergency services. When things go wrong, police and firefighters go into action to save lives and help people. They have dangerous jobs and frequently get injured in the course of their duties. And, of course, when they have injuries, they can pursue workers’ compensation.

At Karayannis Law Offices, our team of attorneys is skilled and experienced in injury matters of all types. For workers’ compensation claims, we help police and firefighters across Geneva pursue compensation for their injuries. These can be complex claims, and denials can put first responders in a tough position, but we are here to help.

Types Of Injuries For First Responders

In a dangerous field such as emergency services, first responder workplace injuries include such problems as:

  • Back injuries from lifting
  • Wounds from attacks
  • Burns
  • Broken bones from vehicle accidents
  • Falls from heights
  • Fatalities
  • Post-traumatic stress
  • Toxic exposures

Any of the above conditions can lead to extensive time out of work and long recovery periods. The good news is that you can have your medical bills covered and see significant wage replacement across the state of Illinois.

Disability Options For Public Workers

In such dangerous jobs, disability is often a common result, and we can help you pursue that. In addition, you should understand your rights and benefits and the Public Safety Employee Benefits Act, which provides publicly funded, lifetime insurance to those who experience a catastrophic injury on the job. These benefits extend to police, firefights and correctional officers.

However, your problems and concerns may be even more complex than your stated legal benefits. Issues of pensions and injury concerns are highly complicated, but we can help you find the answers you need.
