You can count on my law firm to stand up for your rights in getting you the financial help you need when you’ve been injured. I represent clients throughout Maryland.
On-the-job injuries to first responders happen in many ways. Some common causes of injuries include exposure to toxic substances, physical attacks, auto accidents and overexertion and repetitive stress injuries. Responders may also suffer from mental and emotional trauma caused by the difficult events that they help with and are witness to. My law firm helps these brave men and women get financial assistance when they are injured. If you are a first responder who has been hurt on the job, I can advise you about your options and the process for getting compensation.
First responders are constantly being exposed to difficult circumstances that can result in serious injuries and mental trauma. For this reason, workers’ compensation in Maryland provides higher compensation rates to first responders. It also has expanded coverage in place for certain conditions. As just one example, workers’ comp laws make it easier for firefighters who were exposed to toxic chemicals to get compensation for cancer coverage. I understand the enhanced benefits first responders are entitled to and will help ensure you get the help you deserve.
