Police Officer Injury Attorneys in Illinois
Trusted Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Relentlessly Fighting for Your Rights
Law enforcement is composed of some of the bravest and most valued members of society, as they dedicate their lives to public safety. These courageous men and women risk putting themselves in harm’s way and deserve the utmost protection following an injury or accident. At Sam C. Mitchell & Associates, we understand the nature of a police officer’s job is to face life-threatening situations and sustain painful injuries nearly every day. Our Illinois workers’ compensation attorneys have the resources to passionately advocate on behalf of our brothers and sisters in blue.
Police officers face countless hazards on the job, including but not limited to the following:
- Physical or violent encounters
- Car accidents, such as when in pursuit of a suspect
- Exposure to dangerous materials and chemicals
- Stress-related injuries, such as PTSD
As a police officer, you wake up every morning with no indication of how your work day will develop. There is no limit to how dangerous or frightening the situation may become, potentially exposing you to situations which result in broken bones, traumatic brain injury, burns, gunshot wounds, heart issues, spinal cord damage, traffic accidents, and more. Many officers never return from the line of duty, and their families are left to mourn their loved one in a fight for wrongful death benefits.
If you were injured while discharging your duties, you are entitled to file for workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits include coverage of costs related to your injury, loss of wages, medical expenses, etc. However, if a third party is responsible for your injury or accident, you may be eligible to file another lawsuit to recover compensation from the at-fault party.
