Our public safety workers deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. In many instances, these brave men and women put their lives on the line to keep us safe. The least we can do is ensure that they are taken care of when they are injured in the line of duty.
One of the best ways to do this is to provide them with workers’ compensation benefits. But recovering these benefits isn’t automatic. In fact, in many instances workers’ compensation benefits are denied or cut short. This can happen for a number of reasons, but common factors contributing to claim denials include lack of medical evidence demonstrating that the injury in question was suffered or worsened while performing job duties and evidence showing that the injury prevents the victim from working.
As frustrating as a claim denial can be, you shouldn’t let it stop your pursuit of the benefits you deserve. Legal professionals who are experienced representing public service employees in these matters, like those at our firm, stand ready to help you fight for benefits throughout the appeals process. This means gathering additional evidence and making the strongest arguments possible in light of the law.
How support helps

In the end, we want our public safety workers to have the resources they need to allow them to obtain financial stability while they focus on their recovery and getting back to work. If you want to make sure that you have the strongest case possible moving forward, then you might want to think about reaching out to an advocate who will help you fight for the future you deserve.
