Help for Police Officers Injured While on Duty


Being a police officer is a great career for those who want to help the community. Police officers help those who are in need as well as apprehend those who commit crimes and threaten the safety of others.

As such, this job is known as one of the most dangerous occupations in the United States. Police officers are commonly assaulted, stabbed, and shot at. Many are seriously injured or even killed while on the job.

If this has happened to you, you may be unsure what to do. That’s where The Law Offices of Michael P. Burakoff comes in.

How We Can Help

When a police officer is injured in the line of duty, there are options available. Workers’ compensation may be available to some degree. There may also be benefit programs available, but these are typically reserved for the survivors of police officers killed in the line of duty.

So what happens when a police officer is seriously injured and unable to work for some time? It’s best to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer to understand your legal options. The Law Offices of Michael P. Burakoff can help. We have experience representing police officers. Here’s a story from a satisfied client:

Unfortunately, my husband was hurt while on duty  as a police officer. However, we were fortunate enough to be represented by Mr. Michael P. Burakoff, who personally handled my husband’s case. From the very first phone call to his office, his staff were incredibly helpful and listened to all of our inquiries. To our surprise, Mr. Burakoff returned our phone call quickly and dedicated to find out all the details of my husband’s case. He was so incredibly patient, professional, and compassionate to what was going on with my husband’s injuries.

Mr. Burakoff took a personal interest in the outcome of the case as well as my husband’s recovery throughout the process of medical treatment, paperwork, and settlement of the case. Mr. Burakoff explained in great detail every step of the way and would call us with updates. Mr. Burakoff and his staff were never too busy to answer any of his calls and/or visits to the office.

We have never met such a dedicated and professional attorney, willing to help and continue to be involved in my husband’s recovery. Throughout my husband’s 18-year career, he has met and worked with many attorneys, but Mr. Burakoff is the only attorney that we would ever use or recommend. My husband has personally recommended Mr. Burakoff to any police officer who has been injured.
