As one of NY’s FINEST, the City of New York owes you a safe place to work under NYS Labor Law 27(a).
John Beatty has recovered millions of dollars for NYPD MOS injured at work as well as off-duty.
As per New York’s General Municipal Law section 205-a, Police Officers injured on the job may now commence an action against New York City and private defendants such as vehicle drivers and building owners if the officer’s injuries were caused by a violation of a statute, rule, or ordinance.
To win compensation for on-the-job injuries under §205-a,you must show evidence that a federal, state, or local law, code or regulation “directly or indirectly” caused your injury. Building code violations such as illegal conversions and vehicle collisions where a civilian driver violated the NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law are common causes of firefighter injuries.
