Protecting First Responders/Line-of-Duty Injury

First responders— such as police officers, firefighters, paramedics, and EMTs—serve and protect every community in America, endangering their lives and their families’ livelihoods for the sake of others. However, when it comes to protecting themselves and preserving their legal rights, including the right to be compensated fairly for injuries, first responders are often under-informed of their legal rights.
