Sacramento Firefighter Workers' Compensation Lawyers

Seeking Compensation for Injured Firefighters in California

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.

At Smolich and 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.

If you’re a firefighter who has been injured on the job, call Smolich and Smolich today at (916) 571-0400 or get in touch with our firm online to schedule your free consultation and start learning more about your options.

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 and Smolich can help you obtain the following workers’ compensation benefits:

  • 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 firefighter injury attorney as soon as possible.

  • I am so happy to have such knowledgeable and helpful people to help during this difficult time. Sam was super responsive and always willing to answer questions, regardless how big or small.

    “My circumstances were a bit unusual - my husband applied for Social Security Disability, but unfortunately passed away during the review process. Sam and Sarah worked diligently to see the case through to the end, and provide our family the benefits we were owed. A special thank you to Sam, he was always very responsive, willing to go above and beyond, and willing to answer questions whether big or small. Thank you, Smolich and Smolich!”

  • You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process.

    “I sincerely apologize for the delay! I truly thought I had already sent this off to almost 3 months ago! Thank goodness I had someone helping me clean and organize the apartment last week. She found your letter behind my bookcase. I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for your support and dedication throughout my case. You were a true blessing to me. You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process. Just the fact that you returned a call so promptly was a very big deal to me. It let me know that I mattered to you, Sarah, and the firm. Thanks to the two of you I am finally settled in my own apartment and my mom was able to finally retire. So again, thank you from the depths of my heart for everything that you personally and your firm have done for me. You were true angels in my tie of need.”
