Whether they are on patrol duty, work in a station or work at a detention center, law enforcement officers face intense physical and mental stress. This can result in a serious disability that prevents an officer from working.
If you are a police officer, sheriff’s deputy, state trooper or prison officer, you probably have individual or group disability coverage. However, that does not mean that you will receive disability benefits under the terms of your policy. Your insurance company may deny your claim entirely, or provide benefits for only a limited time, despite the fact that you cannot perform your assigned duties. You may need help from a disability claim attorney to obtain the benefits you deserve.
