Types of First Responders Considered to be Eligible for Legal Compensation
According to Merriam-Webster, a first responder is defined as: “a person (such as a police officer or an EMT) who is among those responsible for going immediately to the scene of an accident or emergency to provide assistance.”
And so very often, these brave first responders rush towards danger to help victims and calm the scene–often putting their safety and even lives on the line in the process.
A quick list of the first responder categories eligible for additional compensation to cover accident injuries while “on the job” include:
- Police officer;
- Sheriff's deputy;
- Correctional officer;
- Park & police ranger;
- Federal officer/marshall;
- Animal control officer;
- Court bailiff;
- Probation/parole officer; and,
First responders could face permanent, severe injuries including burns, back injuries, breathing problems, scarring and limited mobility.
They could also face high medical bills and lack of ability to work.
Types of Accidents Considered to be Eligible for Legal Compensation
First responders are all too often put into dangerously hazardous situations while they carry out their requirements of the position.
In some cases, those hazardous situations are the direct result of the emergency itself, such as:
- A building on fire;
- A multiple car accident on a major highway;
- An active shooter scenario;
- Perpetrators with mental disorders;
- And, much more…
In other cases, the situations become hazardous thanks to a lack of proper training or failure to provide workable safety gear.
First responders face a risk of several types of injury, including:
- Internal organ damage;
- Burn injuries;
- Sprains or dislocations;
- Spinal cord injuries;
- Broken bones;
- Brain damage; and,
- Post-traumatic stress disorder.
We believe that first responders who are victims of accidents while “on the job” should be able to get the additional compensation and justice they deserve – even if they have already filed a worker’s compensation claim!
