Firefighters often place themselves in dangerous situations that can result in both minor and major injuries. This is the nature of their job, and they make tremendous sacrifices to protect our community. When injuries occur while at work, these public servants both deserve and are legally entitled to collect worker’s compensation as they recover. In all states firefighters are eligible for worker’s compensation benefits, including apprentices, volunteers, and part-time employees.

In addition to providing free case evaluations our firefighter workers’ comp lawyers charge no fees if they do not recover for you. Serving the entire country including California, Florida, Texas, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware & Washington D.C.
Due to the high-risk nature of being a fireman state laws have been changed to cover a wide range of injuries and illnesses for firefighters through each states worker’s compensation statutes.
This not only includes injuries sustained while fighting a fire, but through other daily activities at work as well, including training exercises, equipment maintenance, office work, and more. In addition to accidents and injuries that occur immediately while working, workers’ comp laws cover health issues and illnesses that occur due to working over a period of time and being exposed to hazardous chemicals such as AFFF’s. These illnesses can be cancer, lung problems, heart conditions, tuberculosis, and pneumonia.
