Helping California responders who suffer work-related injuries

All workers in California face risks when they report to work. However, first responders and peace officers face a variety of different hazards everyday that could ultimately result in serious harm. Often, they suffer work-related injuries due to the nature of their job requirements. The Law Offices of Antony E. Gluck, PC are here to help these workers seek fair compensation as they work to recover from the injuries.

Many employees in California may be entitled to workers' compensation insurance benefits following a workplace accident. But there are some additional considerations for first responders and peace officers, such as prison guards and parole officers. For example, first responders injured on the job are eligible for full salary for a year after an injury whereas other workers are eligible for only two-thirds.

Additionally, certain illnesses and injuries are presumed to be the result of occupational hazards for these workers. For example, when an officer is required to wear a duty belt and suffers back injuries, those injuries are presumed to have been suffered on the job. Other conditions that fall under this presumption include bloodborne infectious diseases, Lyme disease, hernias, heart disease, biochemical exposure and meningitis. 

Despite being entitled to compensation as a result of work-related injuries, many first responders seeking these benefits have found that insurance companies may not automatically treat them fairly. As such, many of these workers in California turn to the Law Offices of Antony E. Gluck  for assistance. We are experienced in helping these critical workers in their pursuit of the maximum available benefits.
