Kevin helps law enforcement officers navigate the complexities of seeking relief for work injuries through workers’ compensation claims.

Does Workers’ Compensation Cover Police Officers?

Whether law enforcement employers have to carry workers’ compensation insurance varies by state. In Florida, state and local governments are subject to such a requirement. In Tennessee, however, they are not. So, as public employees, law enforcement officers typically are covered by workers’ comp in Florida, while their coverage status in Tennessee depends on whether their employer opted to provide such coverage voluntarily. Kevin works with covered officers in Florida and Tennessee to support them through every step of the workers’ compensation process.

Special Workers’ Compensation Rules For Law Enforcement

In both Tennessee and Florida, laws exist that favor law enforcement officers in certain types of workers’ comp claims. For example, both states have a legal presumption that heart disease in law enforcement officers is work related. Kevin will explain any special provisions that apply to your situation and what they could mean for your claim.
