First Responder Injuries

Call a Maryland Personal Injury Attorney for Experienced Help

First responders play a crucial role in Maryland’s emergency services and safety forces. They are the first to the scene of an accident, natural disaster, or crime, ready to provide assistance to those in need. By putting others before themselves, however, first responders often find themselves in dangerous situations. Some may be seriously injured while carrying out their duties.

Alpert Schreyer Poe, LLC represents injured first responders, helping them recover the benefits and compensation they need for medical care, lost earnings, and other losses. When firefighters, police officers, EMTs, and other first responders suffer harm, we fight for their right to just compensation. With a history of representing the injured that spans over 30 years and millions in recoveries for our clients, we are qualified to handle these complex cases.

First Responder Accidents & Injuries

First responders face numerous hazards, which can sometimes result in serious injuries. Whether they are accidental or stem from intentional wrongdoing, they can leave first responders facing difficult and uncertain futures. Our team is committed to helping injured first responders with workers’ compensation claims and personal injury lawsuits so they can be properly compensated for the harm they have experienced.

Representing first responders across Maryland, some of the types of cases we handle include:

  • Physical assaults and attacks
  • Vehicle crashes
  • Overexertion injuries
  • Exposure to toxins or hazardous chemicals
  • Mental and psychological trauma

Workers’ Comp vs. Personal Injury for First Responder Injuries

Depending on the nature of your injury and how it occurred, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits or may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit. Workers’ comp benefits are provided on a no-fault basis, but they do not typically cover emotional trauma and full loss of wages. A personal injury lawsuit, which is filed against a third party for a first responder injury, can provide a means of recovering maximum compensation for any and all losses or injuries.

A skilled Maryland first responder injury attorney can work closely with you to determine how to proceed and whether a workers’ compensation claim or personal injury lawsuit is the right course of action for you.
