Representing Police Officers & Firefighters
The firm recently obtained a
$250,000 settlement for a New York City firefighter lieutenant who sustained burn injuries
in a structural fire which was caused by the negligence of a restaurant
owner. Under New York State Law, police officers and fire fighters are
offered certain protection and rights if injured in the line of duty.
Knowing how to investigate a line of duty accident and understanding the
applicable laws is critical to successfully representing uniformed officers.
Other cases we have resolved included a
$150,000.00 verdict for a retired Nassau County police officer who sustained ankle
and rib injuries in an automobile crash in Nassau County, and
full policy limits recoveries of the defendant's insurance company for a New York City police officer
struck by a drunk driver while in his R.M.P. in Brooklyn.
