Our firm has represented numerous police officers who have suffered injuries, both on and off duty. We have also represented police officers who have lost a loved one as a result of defective products or medical negligence.
Understanding the Complicated Insurance Contracts
Police officers in Chicago are provided insurance coverage to pay for injuries both on and off duty. However, there is a lot of red tape that often makes it difficult for them to get treatment from the physician of their choice. In order to obtain compensation for medical costs, police officers must see a doctor within their City-approved plan. In many cases where the officer receives compensation from a third party (such as the at-fault driver), a subrogation lien will likely be asserted by the City of Chicago. This means the officer is required to reimburse the City for expenses related to his or her medical treatment before receiving their net proceeds from the settlement or verdict. Our firm has extensive experience navigating this complex area of reduction of liens in order to maximize the amount recovered by our clients who have been injured through the fault of others.
