Injured Police Officers, Firefighters, Paramedics and EMTs
O’Hare Parnagian LLP are dedicated to helping those people who are injured helping others in emergency situations. Too often, those who put their lives on the line protecting and serving the public do not receive the compensation they are entitled to when they are injured in the line-of-duty. Injured police officers, firefighters, paramedics and EMTs: just because you willingly perform a dangerous job every day does not mean you have to suffer the consequences of your injuries without due compensation.
We have extensive experience representing police officers, fire fighters and other first responders who are injured in the line-of-duty and when responding to emergencies. These are cases in which we truly believe.
To receive only a regular wage payment and payment of medical expenses after an injury is not compensation for your other losses including lost overtime, pain and suffering, delayed promotions due to time off for injury, and emotional distress. You may not be able to continue to support your family on regular wage payments or a pension alone. You may be entitled to protect your family’s income by claiming against the party at fault.
If a police officer, firefighter or first responder sustains a line-of-duty personal injury, they may be entitled to damages for the pain and suffering and additional lost income they suffer by pursuing a claim against a motorist, landowner or other negligent third party.
Because the law limits the times within which you can bring a claim, you should contact us immediately to investigate your case. Sometimes you must start your case within 30 days of the injury.
