It is not unusual for police officers to be injured while directing traffic at intersections, accident scenes, or construction details. Many of these types of accidents result in so-called “soft tissue injuries,” involving necks, backs, shoulders or knees. However, depending on the severity of the accident, a police officer may suffer from much more serious injuries, such as fractures, spinal injuries, head injuries, scarring, internal bleeding, crushed limbs, and permanent disability. If you have been injured while directing traffic or working at a road job or construction detail, you deserve to becompensated for your injuries. At Ballin & Associates, our Massachusetts police injury attorneys are equipped with the experience, dedication, and drive to obtain the fairest amount of compensation possible for your injuries and other losses.
In accident cases involving details, we have collected compensation for injured officers not only from the offending motorist, but also from the utility or construction company that negligently failed to set up proper work area protection devices. There are numerous state, federal, and company guidelines that regulate the manner in which work area protection needs to be set up, which not only protects the crew, but also the equipment, passing motorists and officer as well. However, it is not unusual for construction companies to violate these guidelines, resulting in the police officer being put in harm's way of approaching traffic.
