Cleveland Police Car Accident Attorney

Emergency Personnel Injured on Duty in Vehicle Accidents

Police Officers • Firefighters • EMT and Paramedics

Police cars on the side of the road are "sitting ducks" for drunk drivers or inattentive motorists. Firefighters, ambulance crews and police officers are injured every day in traffic crashes or while standing near rescue scenes.

The law firm of Bashein & Bashein represents police, fire and emergency medical workers injured in auto accidents throughout northeast Ohio. Whether municipal employees or privately employed, they retain all the rights of any citizen to bring a personal injury claim for an on-duty crash or pedestrian accident.

We understand the risks that police officers, firefighters and ambulance crews face, and we are committed to your rightful compensation for medical care, lost earnings and lasting disability. Contact our Cleveland law office for a free consultation.

Cleveland and Akron Police and Rescue Vehicle Accident Attorneys

We have represented police officers and sheriff's deputies, paramedics and ambulance drivers, firefighters and other emergency personnel:

  • Intersection crashes while responding to calls
  • Police officers injured while patrolling
  • Officers injured (in or out of the squad car) during traffic stops
  • Firefighters injured in collisions or falls from fire trucks
  • Personnel struck by other vehicles at emergency scenes
  • Other on-the-job vehicle-related accidents

We handle workers' compensation claims, but many police, fire and rescue clients mistakenly believe they are limited only to employer-paid benefits. We will vigorously pursue related personal injury lawsuits, which can fully replace future earnings and provide additional compensation not available through workers' comp, such as damages for pain and suffering, and punitive damages if applicable.
