Cleveland police injury attorneys and firefighter lawyers
Police officers, firefighters and other law enforcement officials have some of the most dangerous jobs in the U.S. They risk their lives every day so they can protect and serve their communities. But all too often, police officers and firefighters are injured on the job. In many cases, they cannot return to work and are forced to stop doing what they love.
The number of fatal work injuries among protective service occupations increased to 258 in 2010, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Fatalities among police officers had the highest increase, rising 40 percent from 96 to 134 in 2010. Of the 134 fatal work injuries among police officers, 57 involved highway incidents and 48 involved homicides.
