Being a firefighter is a dangerous job. Firefighters are devoted to the people they serve, oftentimes risking their own lives to save another. When a firefighter is injured or killed on the job, their families can suffer tremendous financial hardship and loss. Losing a loved one is extremely difficult on anyone, but as a fireman’s family, the knowledge that they could be injured or killed as a part of their day to day job is always present. That knowledge also comes with a sense of pride that their loved one has dedicated themselves to caring for others just as they care for their family. Firefighters carry a passion to serve others as well as protect those they love.
Helping Injured Firefighters & their Families Video
Ron Meyers & Associates PLLC are dedicated to serving Western Washington firemen and their families when it comes to compensation for injuries received while on the job. As a firefighter, all injuries they receive may not be related to an emergency call. Unsafe conditions that result from an improper training technique or traffic accidents that occur while on fire company time are all considered personal injury and must be compensated.
During the commission of their duties, firefighters are often exposed to chemicals, contaminants and irritants that can result in several different health issues. In some cases, the health problems are immediate, while in others it can take months or years to develop. Firemen have the option of filing a RCW 51.32.185 claim to help them cover their medical and financial expenses associated with this type of injury. This also applies to heart problems related to strenuous physical activity, lung problems, certain cancers and known infections that are associated with exposure to smoke, fumes and toxic substances and bio-hazards on the job.
