Work injury claims for california firefighters

When you see the picture of a firefighter, you might think that they’re all brave and courageous. But for some people, being a firefighter is not as easy as it looks. It can be dangerous work with injuries happening frequently. Every day, firefighters face new dangers and many are injured while trying to save others from fires or other horrifying incidents.

The State of California has worker’s compensation benefits for those who suffer an injury in the line of duty. This includes firefighters who are apprentices, volunteers at any level or part-time employees even if it was just one day on assignment with their fire department or agency since they were still technically working within the jurisdiction of that particular employer during this time period.

Firefighters qualify for all types of worker’s comp benefits, such as:

  • Medical bills
  • Partial lost wages
  • Temporary and permanent disability
  • Death benefits

Firefighters are a group of people who may not seem like they go through a lot, but the reality is that they do. They’re constantly being exposed to hazardous chemicals and items just by going on duty everyday. This can lead to serious health problems after years of service, which is why firefighters in California are entitled to worker’s compensation for these injuries or illnesses sustained while working or training. These benefits can cover anything from cancer due to exposure over many years, to heart conditions caused because one has been doing too much physical work at once.
