Police Injuries in Sacramento

Contact a Sacramento Workers’ Comp Attorney Now!

The life of a law enforcement officer is unpredictable—you never know what you may have to deal with or might happen to you every day you go to work. While some days are calm and uneventful, other days see law enforcement officers facing serious threats of bodily harm. Whether it’s a high-speed pursuit or a suspect brandishing a deadly weapon, officers are constantly under threat from a wide variety of hazards that aren’t seen in any other profession. This also means that police and other law enforcement officers are also frequently injured, and the laws have been tailored to provide workers’ compensation benefits to those in law enforcement who need them.

At Smolich & Smolich, we recognize that police put their lives on the line to use the law to protect us, and we strive to return the favor by using the law to protect them. Our team of Sacramento workers’ compensation lawyers has served our community for over 40 years, providing high-quality representation for the injured and disabled. We understand how stressful an on-the-job injury can be, especially when it pulls you out of the line of duty and threatens your ability to continue to make a living. We firmly believe all our clients deserve justice, especially those who pursue justice for us. That’s why we stand as a powerful voice and advocate for law enforcement when they’re injured on the job and need assistance pursuing the compensation they deserve.

Call Smolich & Smolich today at 888.452.0703 to request a case evaluation if you’re a police or other law enforcement officer who has been injured in the line of duty and needs assistance pursuing a workers’ compensation claim.

Protecting Those Who Protect & Serve

There’s no denying how difficult of a job law enforcement is. Between high-stress situations, unpredictable people, and constant public scrutiny, there’s a lot for officers to deal with even aside from the immensely high risk of physical harm and serious injury.

  • Injured law enforcement employees could receive benefits for their injuries, including:
  • Medical bill and treatment coverage
  • Lost income from missed work
  • Disability payments
  • Death benefits (if injuries should become fatal)

In California, all law enforcement personnel are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, including apprentice and volunteer officers. This also covers more than active duty as well: injuries sustained while doing office duties, training exercises, and even equipment maintenance are all covered by our state’s workers’ compensation laws.
