Emergency Personnel

Emergency personnel, such as police officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians (EMT’s), etc. have an inherently dangerous job and regularly put their lives on the line to protect our communities. In the event that these public service workers should suffer an injury in the line of duty, they deserve and are legally entitled to receive assistance for their injuries through the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Act. If you or a loved one has been injured on the job as an emergency personnel, the workers’ compensation lawyers at Kaufman Law can protect your rights and help ensure you have access to the financial benefits you deserve.
Emergency personnel who are injured on the job while protecting citizens, whether it be fighting a fire, responding to community emergencies, participating in training exercises, maintaining equipment, or under other circumstances may be entitled to receive compensation for temporary and permanent disability, medical expenses, and partial lost income. In the event that an emergency personnel should unfortunately pass away due to their occupation, workers’ compensation can pay death benefits to their family to cover funeral costs, medical bills, and lost income.
Common workplace injuries and illnesses for emergency personnel include:

  • Burn Injuries
  • Crushing or Falling Injuries
  • Electrical Shock Injuries
  • Smoke or Gas Inhalation
  • Neck, Spine, & Back Injuries
  • Shoulder & Arm Injuries
  • Leg Pain
  • Foot Injuries
  • Brain Injuries
  • Strains, Sprains, & Muscle Injuries
  • Blood Borne Pathogens
  • Violence

As emergency personnel dedicate their lives to protect those that they have never met, they deserve to be taken care of in the event that they should be injured in a work-related accident. At Kaufman Law our Georgia workers’ compensation attorneys recognize and understand the risks that emergency personnel take on a daily basis to ensure our safety.
