While most city workers in New York City cannot sue their employers for injuries they have suffered on the job, this is not the case with New York City police officers. Because the city of New York opted out of the workers’ compensation system, members of the NYPD can sue their employer for negligence in injury cases.
Police injury lawsuits are complex cases though and they require the skill of an experienced NYPD injury lawyer. At Dansker & Aspromonte, we stand up for the rights of injured police officers and their families. We can help you pursue full and fair compensation for the losses you have suffered.

Third-Party Police Accident Claims
In addition to suing the city of New York, injured police officers may also have claims against negligent third parties, depending upon the circumstances of the accident. Examples of third-party negligence claims include:
- Car accidents in which police officers were injured by negligent civilian drivers
- Slip, trip and fall accidents caused by faulty stairs or sidewalks
- Accidents caused by defective police equipment
