Massachusetts Firefighter Injury Attorney
At Ballin & Associates, we have made many of the same types of claims for injured firefighters as we have for injured police officers. For years, many Massachusetts firefighters injured in the line of duty have been shortchanged when it comes to compensation for their injuries. Many are unaware that they have valuable claims for tens — and in some cases, hundreds — of thousands of dollars for their pain and suffering, lost overtime pay, scarring, medical expenses, and diminished earning capacity. At Ballin & Associates, our Massachusetts firefighter injury attorneys are 100% dedicated to helping injured firefighters obtain compensation for their injuries. We are very experienced in this area of the law, and use our knowledge and expertise to help the injured firefighters who so unselfishly help others everyday.
Typically, an injured firefighter usually makes a claim to the municipality for their medical expenses and lost wages, pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 41, Sections 100 and 111F. These statutes provide that “whenever a fire fighter of a city, town, or fire or water district is incapacitated for duty because of injury sustained in the performance of his duty without fault of his own, he shall be granted leave without loss of pay for the period of such incapacity” and is entitled to have all reasonable medical expenses for services which relate back to the injury paid for.

Firefighter injuries can be severe, and may result in extensive time off from work or even early retirement if the injuries are permanent or too debilitating. In addition to physical injury, some firefighters experience depression because they are no longer able to work and do what they love. No firefighter deserves to suffer like this. At Ballin & Associates, we are committed to protecting the best interest of injured firefighters throughout Massachusetts, and helping them recover the compensation they need to move forward with their lives after a traumatic injury.
