Standing Up for Injured Firefighters
Firefighters take risks every single day. They put their own lives on the line in order to ensure the safety of others. While their goodwill is apparent, when it comes to an injury in the workplace, the insurance company does not prove to be the same. If you have been injured on the job, you need someone who will stand up for your rights. At Strong Law Offices, we are your advocate.
We serve injured firefighters throughout the entire state of Illinois from our offices in Peoria, Springfield, Bloomington and Decatur. Our lawyers stand up for the rights of those who have been injured in negligent accidents in workers' compensation claims and personal injury claims. We are experienced, knowledgeable of the law, and dedicated to providing competent legal services that fully meet your needs.
Protecting Firefighters Across Illinois
Firefighters and police officers often times encounter various types of high-risk exposure to injuries. Firefighters and police officers can be injured during training exercises, everyday job duties as well as responding to emergency situations. Often times, firefighters and police officers have access to various statutory remedies separate and apart from their rights under the Illinois Workers' Compensation Act.
Often times, firefighters and police officers may be entitled to other rights and benefits outside of the workers' compensation laws that require a coordination of benefits so as to maximize any potential exposure to offsets or double recovery. Firefighters and police officers could be eligible for wage loss benefits if they are disabled from returning to their occupation. Strong Law Offices fights for lifetime wage loss benefits in those cases.
Injuries to Firefighters in the Workplace
Firefighters are constantly in dangerous environments, but that does not mean they are not entitled to benefits for injuries suffered on the job. People in the industry are in compromising work environments where heavy equipment use is necessary, along with repetitive movements. These conditions can cause injuries that could have been avoided if the environment was properly maintained.
At Strong Law Offices, we will help you in getting the medical treatment necessary to assist you in your recovery and inform you of the workers' compensation benefits that you may be entitled to. It is always our goal to maximize the recovery for our clients' claim, and we work hard to make sure that happens.
