WHEN COPS GET HURT: WORKERS' COMPENSATION ISSUES UNIQUE to LAW ENFORCEMENT

Attorney Jay Johnson was honored to speak at the Illinois Fraternal Order of Police Steward Training on May 23, 2019 in Springfield, Illinois. Members received information regarding issues unique to law enforcement work-related injuries. Discussion included the benefits provided by the Public Employees Disability Act and the Public Safety Employees Benefit Act, and how these statutes interact with workers' compensation. Jay also discussed general workers' compensation information that every employee needs to know.

The Attorney for Injured First Responders

As a society, we rely on the dedication and hard work of law enforcement for our safety. The daily duties of first responders often lead to dangerous situations, which can lead to injuries. In fact, police officers have one of the highest rates of injury and illness of any occupation. The attorneys at Woodruff Johnson & Evans Law Offices have aggressively fought for the rights of injured officers and their families throughout the state of Illinois for 25 years. Our firm is the proud recipient of the Blue and Gold Award for generosity and support to the ILFOP.
