There is a clear legal remedy for these municipal workers to collect workers' compensation benefits.

Pursuing Workers' Compensation

As a police officer, fireman, EMT or other municipal worker, the law recognizes that there is a presumption of medical risk within your job duties. The law varies depending on the year in which you enlisted as an officer. Generally, if the injury, disability, or other medical condition did not surface before you started working in this field, there is a presumption that the condition is related to the job.
