Officers are frequently injured while responding to residences or other scenes in which an out of control family member, other relation or acquaintance is causing a ruckus, trouble, or disturbance. In many cases, once the officer arrives at the home or apartment, the officer must defuse an emotionally charged situation or remove someone who is out of control. At Ballin & Associates, we have extensive experience representing police officers who have been injured while responding to domestic disturbances in homes, apartments and other locations. Our Massachusetts police injury attorneys are devoted to fighting on behalf of our clients' rights, and helping them obtain the maximum amount of compensation possible for theses injuries.
One of the most problematic areas for an officer is confronting and removing an out-of-control or intoxicated family member, significant other, or guest from a home or other building. The situation becomes exacerbated when a subject resists or struggles with an officer in tight quarters, and nearby stairs, furniture, doorways, glass doors and tables, or appliances. Adding to the danger are other family members who interfere with the officer's efforts, either physically or by further inflating the emotionally charged atmosphere. On occasion, officers are injured after falling down stairs, into walls, over furniture, or onto the ground while trying to restrain the subject. Some officers have even been bitten by an out-of-control subject while attempting to secure him/her with handcuffs. If you have been injured while trying to restrain or remove such a person in response to a domestic disturbance, Ballin & Associates can help. We devote 100% of ourselves and our practice to building strong and compelling cases. Our number one priority is protecting our clients' best interest, and making sure they obtain the compensation they need to compensate for their pain and suffering, cover their expenses and help them move forward with their lives.
When an officer sustains an injury during a domestic dispute, the officer may face difficulties throughout multiple areas of life. In addition to painful injuries, an injured officer may be temporarily or permanently unable to perform the essential functions of police work and therefore be required to lose out on much needed income on which they rely for support and in some cases they are involuntarily forced to retire early. After a career ending injury the officer is usually unable to find another career to support themselves since their training and skills are not transferable over to the private sector. At Ballin & Associates, our Massachusetts police injury attorneys have helped countless injured police officers obtain compensation they deserve. We have successfully recovered damages to cover the cost of pain, suffering, medical bills, future treatment expenses, lost detail and overtime income, psychological distress, and other financial hardships.
