Police Officer Injuries in Charlotte

Let Our Experienced Workers’ Comp Attorneys Fight for You

Police officers put their lives on the line every single day to protect the public. In many instances, these brave individuals sustain injuries that are the result of the dangerous job they do. Law enforcement is constantly in the presence of life-threatening situations, so serious and fatal injury is a regular part of their line of work.

At Price, Petho & Anderson, we are dedicated to protecting our police officers—just like they protect our community. Our Charlotte workers’ compensation attorneys will make sure that they obtain the maximum coverage for any injuries they sustain while patrolling the streets or performing their work duties.

What Types of Benefits Are Available to Injured Police?

According to the North Carolina workers’ compensation law, injured public safety employees such as police officers are eligible to file a workers’ compensation claim. The state’s workers’ comp system covers any injury suffered on the job and while performing work-related duties.

The most common injuries law enforcement officials suffer include:

  • Gunshot wounds
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Muscle sprains and strains
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Heart disease and stroke
  • Mental trauma

Additionally, certain police officers who lose the ability to work due to an injury or occupational illness sustain while performing work duties are eligible for salary continuation for up to two years, according to the Criminal Justice Training and Standard Act. Although injuries suffered while on active duty are covered, so are injuries sustained while training, performing office duties, maintaining equipment, or fall ill because of working conditions or exposure to illness.
