Arizona Police Denied Justice
There is an archaic law known as the firefighter’s rule. The rule has been done away with in multiple states throughout the country. Unfortunately, Arizona punishes its own firefighters and police officers with unjust laws such as the firefighter’s rule. The firefighter’s rule says that somebody who was badly injured or killed while working as a police officer has no right to bring a lawsuit against the negligent person who caused their injury. This even includes a situation where somebody negligently did something that directly led to the death of one of our brave police officers or firefighters.
Somebody who puts their life on the line has a right to hold negligent people responsible for what they’ve done. There is far too much misinformation and far too many people believe they have no right to bring any kind of insurance claim or lawsuit outside of workers’ compensation. While this is true sometimes, there are other situations where a top Arizona injury lawyer can help overcome the hurdle created by this unfair and unjust law.
If you have questions about any case involving a serious injury or the death of a loved one who was on the job as a firefighter or police officer please do not hesitate to give us a call. At Breyer Law Offices, we have fought the fight for police officers. We have overcome motions to dismiss their cases to make sure that people who are seriously injured in the line of duty are not denied the compensation they need and deserve for the serious injuries they have suffered.
