Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/05/2019 -- Law enforcement is a particularly dangerous profession with regard to the chances of sustaining a work-related injury. Assault-related injury rates increased by 10% annually between 2003 and 2011. The leading causes of these injuries were assaults and violent acts, accounting for 36% of all incidents. As the most prominent workman comp attorney in Atlanta, The Law Offices of Darwin F. Johnson are promoting workers' compensation for law enforcement officers.
Law enforcement officers are covered for both accidental injuries that arise out of and during the course of their employment and occupational diseases. These occupational diseases could arise from the hazards of their profession and include hearing loss, heart disease, and hypertension. Atlanta law presumes that hypertension or heart disease developed from stressful situations and conditions faced during an officer's employment.
The presumption is based on factual medical evidence that law enforcement officers, due to their many responsibilities and pressures, have an increased risk of hypertension and heart disease in comparison to the general public. When choosing a workers compensation lawyer in Atlanta, it's essential to work with a reputable firm with experience representing the police to maximize the chances of receiving fair compensation.
The Law Offices of Darwin F. Johnson are well versed in the practice of workers' compensation law, especially when representing the police force in Atlanta. Those who would like to learn more, as well as those who would like to schedule a free consultation, are encouraged to contact The Law Offices of Darwin F. Johnson as soon as possible.
