Workers Compensation

The Dallas Fire-Rescue Workers' Compensation Office processes workers' comp claims for on-duty injuries to DFR personnel, which includes preparing and submitting the appropriate initial injury reports and other State-required reports; coordinating between injured employees, the City's third party administrator, and the City's medical management network; calculating and ensuring correct payment of City pay for injured personnel receiving workers' comp weekly income benefits and for employees on limited duty. We are also required to report injuries to fire prevention and firefighting/paramedic personnel to the Texas Commission on Fire Protection. In addition, the Workers' Compensation Office manages the limited duty program for Department personnel who are recovering from both on- and off-duty injury/illnesses and need time in a limited duty assignment before returning to full duty work demands.
