Harrisburg Heart & Lung Act Lawyer | Police, Firefighter & State Correctional Employees
Police officers, firefighters, corrections workers, and certain other state and municipal employees who suffer work related injuries during the performance of their job duties are entitled to additional benefits under the Pennsylvania (PA) Heart & Lung Act. These additional benefits include 100 percent of the injured workers’ normal pay tax free as well as employment benefits. These injured workers are also entitled to raises during the period of disability covered under the Pennsylvania Heart and Lung Act and may also be able to get their attorney fees covered by the Municipality.
