If you are a safety officer that was injured it is important that you protect your rights, get the proper treatment and in many cases so you can get back to work. After working with many Officers and Firefighters we know how much most love their jobs and getting back to work is a top priority. However we also know that when getting back to work is not a possibility or time has come for retirement that maximizing benefits and treatment are number one priorities.
