Injuries Suffered by Firefighters
It is no stretch of the imagination to say that firefighters face some of the most dangerous working conditions out of anyone. On an average day, they might have to put out a blazing inferno, provide first aid after a car accident, and more. Injuries can and do often happen to firefighters, who should then be provided workers’ compensation benefits.
Common injuries suffered by firefighters include:
- Smoke inhalation
- Third-degree burns
- Back injuries
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Toxic exposure illnesses
If you were hurt in any of these ways, then it is time to explore your options for workers’ compensation. You certainly deserve the rest. Do not push yourself by trying to do too much if you are injured. Let us handle your claim for you, so you don’t add any more stress to your day.
Sun Exposure & Skin Cancer Claims
In California, firefighters may be eligible for getting workers’ compensation related to skin cancer. During fire season, which can feel like most of the year, it is not unusual for firefighters to spend long hours each day under the sun while fighting a wildfire. The greater Los Angeles area is especially prone to annual wildfires that can eclipse thousands of acres.
Do you worry that you might be developing skin cancer due to your long hours under the sun while working? Please see a medical professional as soon as possible for a diagnosis. If you are diagnosed with skin cancer, then do not hesitate to reach out to our firm for legal support. Insurance companies have gained some notoriety for not taking skin cancer claims seriously, so you might need our help to pursue the full number of benefits owed to you.
Benefits for your skin cancer workers’ comp claim as a firefighter could include:
- Medical treatment cost coverage
- Permanent disability pay
- Vocational retraining
- Death benefits if the cancer is terminal
