For a police officer, every day can be a challenge — and there is always the possibility of being injured on the job. If you are a police officer and have been injured on the job, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.
If you are being asked to come back to work too soon after an injury, or if the insurance company challenges whether your injury happened on the job, it is time to talk to an experienced workers’ compensation attorney.
Since 1983, the Eley Law Firm in Denver has focused our entire practice on representing injured workers in Colorado. We do not represent employers or insurance companies. We represent workers — including police officers who have been hurt in work-related accidents.
Car accidents are a frequent hazard for police officers. A great deal of the workday may be spent in a patrol car in frequently challenging circumstances.
Shootings and assaults can cause serious injury to police officers. If you have been shot or injured in an assault while on the job, you are entitled to workers’ comp.
A police officer faces a wide range of dangerous situations — a slip and fall caused by slippery substances, exposure to chemicals (as in a meth lab) or broken stairways causing a dangerous fall.
Fault is not an issue to qualify for workers’ compensation. You do not have to prove that someone else caused your injury.
