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.

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

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,
- 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.
