As a law enforcement officer, you know that your job comes with inherent risks. Getting injured while on the job is fairly high probability. Perhaps you recently injured your back while trying to handcuff a suspect that was resisting. While you only required a bit of rest and relaxation after the strain, what happens if you suffer a catastrophic injury? You know that you are entitled to workers' compensation if you suffer an injury while on duty, but what do you do if the insurance company denies your claim?
If your workers' compensation claim was denied, you have the option to appeal. While it may feel like a significant setback, a denied claim is often the starting point on the path to getting the benefits you deserve.
