Workers' Compensation Rights for Volunteer Firefighters

In Iowa, many smaller communities rely on volunteer firefighters to protect them. Firefighting is a dangerous job, especially in residential areas. In addition to the danger posed by extreme heat and fire, volunteer firefighters are also exposed to chemicals and unstable structures. Injuries are common.

Workers' compensation benefits are critical for volunteer firefighters. Statistics show that volunteer firefighters are more likely to be injured than career firefighters. According to the National Fire Protection Association, roughly 14,870 volunteer firefighters were injured between 2012 and 2014.

Eric, Randy, and Sarah have more than 40 years of combined experience helping injured workers recover compensation. We have helped volunteer firefighters with injuries including:

  • Severe strains, sprains and serious wounds
  • Breaks
  • Thermal injuries including smoke inhalation
  • Burn injuries
  • Heart attack and stroke

If you've been injured while on the job, call Eric, Randy, and Sarah at 515-225-4485...let us fight for your rights to ensure you get the compensation you rightfully deserve!
