Heart & Lung Benefits

Public safety employees, such as Police Officers and Firefighters, are also entitled to injured-worker benefits that are superior to those offered under the Workers’ Compensation law. Under Pennsylvania's Heart & Lung Act, if public safety employees are injured on duty, they are entitled to receive 100% of salary and certain benefits for the duration of their temporary disability.

Willig, Williams & Davidson frequently represents Police Officers and Firefighters in order to obtain and protect Heart & Lung Act benefits. Our workers compensation lawyers understand the important differences between these benefits and other benefits to which these workers may be entitled, such as Workers’ Compensation benefits. And we coordinate our representation with our union clients, in order to negotiate and enforce policies intended to ensure that injured Police Officers and Firefighters receive the full benefits to which they are entitled.
