Police officers have some of the most taxing, and dangerous, jobs in today’s economy. The demands of their occupation can have lasting physical consequences and many suffer immense pain as a result. If you sustained a back injury while in the line of duty, you may assume that it’s “just part of the job” and attempt to work through the pain. At Pacific Workers’ Compensation Law Center, our Oakland back injury lawyers know differently.
For public safety officials such as police officers, injuries are classified in three separate tiers, of which back injuries are often in the minor. Most of these settle for a limit of 50 weeks workers' compensation for medical expenses and lost wages. If you feel your injury is more severe, our team can help prove this and establish it in the correct tier that dictates the appropriate amount of compensation for your injury.
All it takes to begin your case is simply filling out an online form. From there, we’ll contact you for your free consultation!
