Firefighter Injuries

San Diego Firefighter Injuries Lawyer

Serving Southern California Firefighters

Firefighters bravely put themselves in dangerous situations to serve and protect the public every day, often sacrificing their own health in the process. The nature of a firefighter’s job has the potential to causes serious injuries, as well as illnesses that develop over time.

Injuries and illnesses firefighters may suffer include:

  • Slips and falls
  • Injuries from training exercises and equipment maintenance
  • Cancer
  • Tuberculosis
  • Pneumonia
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Heart conditions

Suffering an injury or illness as a firefighter can be an overwhelming experience. Between seeking medical treatment and rehabilitation and taking time off of work, it’s normal to feel helpless. Thankfully, Leigh Law Firm can help ease your burdens. Our skilled firefighter injuries lawyer in San Diego can work aggressively to defend your rights and obtain the compensation you are entitled to as a sick or injured firefighter.

If you have sustained an injury as a firefighter, call Leigh Law Firm today at (619) 473-7569 or contact us online.

Recovering Damages

In San Diego, and Southern California in general, firefighters are particularly at risk due to the increasingly intense brushfires that occur throughout the area. The State of California recognizes this and grants workers’ compensation eligibility to all firefighters, even if they are volunteers. These benefits can be applied to physical injuries suffered on the job, such as slipping and falling, as well as long-term illnesses such as cancer from exposure to carcinogens.
