DLP Represents Injured Municipal Workers in Obtaining Heart and Lung Benefits

Date: June 9, 2011

If you are a police officer or a fireman who is injured on the job, you may be entitled to receive Heart and Lung benefits in addition to workers’ compensation benefits.  Heart and Lung benefits entitle an injured municipal worker to full pay while off on temporary disability.  Additionally, Heart and Lung benefits are tax-free to the injured worker.  Your employer or its insurance carrier is also obligated to pay for all of your work-related medical bills. 

If you are a police officer or a fireman and you suffer a work injury that prevents you performing your job duties, call the lawyers at DLP for a free no-obligation consultation.  We will explain to you what benefits are available to you while you remain disabled.
