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.

Call Smolich & Smolich today at (916) 571-0400 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.

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.

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.

  • They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!

    “Thank you so much for your help. I was denied twice by social security disability. They are the most diligent and wonderfully. Yes it takes a while to get a hearing. If it wasn't for the great staff and attorneys here, I would have never been approved for disability. It was the best Christmas gift i received. They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!”

  • 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.”

  • Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!!

    “Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!! Rob Smolich took my case himself and was so helpful in every step of the way. I cant say anything negative about Smolich & Smolich. I had a lawyer before him and he was way more personable. His office took all the stress off my back and made me feel at ease during the time period of waiting. Have nothing but good things to say about this company. They are completely professional!!!!”
