Firefighter Injuries in Sacramento
Contact a Sacramento Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Today!
Firefighters are some of the most important public service workers, especially
in the dry deserts of California, where wildfires seem to burst out of
control every summer and fall. These brave individuals look danger square
in the eye and put their lives on the line to protect our lands and our
homes when they’re threatened by raging flames. It’s not uncommon
for firefighters to be injured while in the line of duty, and that means
they should expect to receive the same workers’ compensation benefits
as those in other occupations do.
Smolich & Smolich, we believe that firefighters deserve the same quality of care and advocacy
as everyone else, and we fight to help them receive the benefits they
deserve. For more than 40 years, our team has provided each of our clients
with the strong representation and reliable legal counsel they expect
their case to receive. Whether you have been hurt in the line of duty
fighting a wildfire, injured in a car accident, or acquired a condition
from a training exercise, our team understands the hazards of being a
firefighter, and we are proud to serve as your ally and help you get the
benefits you need.

& Smolich today at 888.452.0703 to schedule your

High-Quality Representation for a High-Risk Occupation
Firefighters don’t have it easy. Fires are one obvious threat to
their health and well-being, but many people also forget about smoke,
collapsing buildings, hot surfaces, and even dangerous equipment that
firefighters have to work with every day, all of which could cause injuries.
Under California law, firefighters are eligible for workers’ compensation
benefits, but sometimes these benefits aren’t granted automatically
and instead need to be fought for.
- Smolich & Smolich can help you obtain the following workers’
- Medical expense coverage
- Lost wages
- Disability benefits (permanent and temporary)
- Death benefits (should injuries prove fatal)
Fire departments have a responsibility to adhere to safety regulations
to protect their workers (both employees and volunteers) from harm due
to known risks. If you have been injured in this regard, or are suffering
from a condition due to the nature of your work, get legal assistance
from a Sacramento workers’ compensation attorney as soon as possible.
