Protecting The Rights Of The Public Safety Workers Who Protect Us

Public safety workers put their own well-being at risk every day to protect members of their community. The occupational hazards are rampant for public safety officers, from back injuries to attacks from members of the public.

When a public safety professional suffers an injury on the job, they deserve fair workers’ compensation benefits to cover their medical care, rehabilitation, and other related expenses. At Meechan Rosenthal & Karpilow PC, we can help you recover these benefits. For more than 30 years, our team of strong yet caring attorneys has helped the workers of Santa Rosa and the surrounding communities get workers’ comp benefits.

Just a few of the public safety professions we regularly serve include:

  • Police officers
  • Firefighters
  • Security guards
  • Paramedics
  • Emergency medical technicians
  • Lifeguards

In our practice, we have put workers’ compensation benefits into the hands of thousands of people. There are a few scenarios we have not handled in our considerable experience. Allow us to give you the same level of commitment that you give to the people you serve.

Navigating California’s Laws To Make It Easier For You

California law is set up to make it slightly easier for public safety personnel to obtain workers’ compensation benefits. Unlike workers in other industries who must prove that their injuries occurred on the job, the state presumes that certain injuries and conditions arise regularly in public safety occupations. The law also grants firefighters and law enforcement officers up to one year’s full salary, unlike the standard two-thirds.

Even so, we understand the immense amount of time and stress that it takes to file a claim. Our team can handle the claim, explain your options, and tackle the administrative steps so you can focus your energy completely on recovering.
