Police And Firefighter Injury Lawyer

Bronx Police and Firefighter Injuries Lawyer

Police and firefighters are often injured while performing their job duties. If you were injured in the line of duty as a police officer or firefighter as a result of someone’s fault, you may have the right to recover compensation from negligent parties. 

Workers’ compensation is not available for police officers and firefighters in the state of New York. However, you are entitled to line of duty benefits and additionally, you have the right to make a claim for your pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages.

That is where a Bronx police and firefighter injuries lawyer from our firm can help you. Dansker & Aspromonte Associates is committed to helping first responders recover compensation after getting hurt – and we have a track record to prove it. 

We helped one client obtain a jury verdict of $31 million after a police officer was injured in a motor vehicle accident responding to an emergency. We also won a $3.6 million jury verdict for a firefighter who received inadequate medical care after being injured on the job.

We Will Provide Services Tailored to Your Situation

If you have been involved in a line of duty injury, you may not be sure whether your accident was the result of the fault of another or whether you have a right to bring a claim against another party. 

By consulting a lawyer from our firm, we will conduct a careful and thorough investigation of your incident to determine if another party caused or contributed to your injuries. We will protect your rights so that you can concentrate on your own recovery.

Some of the ways in which we can help you build your claim may include:

  • Retain experts in all applicable fields including accident reconstruction
  • Conducting a site visit

  • Obtain all medical records and reports
  • Consulting with medical experts
  •  Communicating with the responsible insurance companies on your behalf 
  • Filing your claims in a timely manner

We Work On a Contingency Fee Basis

After being injured, you may be concerned about how you will afford a lawyer. That does not need to be a problem when you work with us. We offer all of our legal services on a contingency-fee basis. That means that you will not be required to pay us any money upfront for our legal services. We only earn a legal fee when you recover compensation.

Don’t Delay Speaking to a Lawyer About Your Rights

You have a limited amount of time to file a claim or lawsuit, according to New York’s statute of limitations and other rules. If you fail to file your claim by the applicable deadline, you could be prevented from recovering the money you deserve.  

Don’t delay speaking to a lawyer. Consulting a lawyer as soon after your accident as possible often leads to a stronger claim as evidence may disappear or weaken with time.

We Can Prove That Another Party’s Negligence Resulted in Your Losses

Many first responders incorrectly assume that because they were aware of the dangers their jobs presented, they cannot recover compensation for their losses. This is not true, as you have certain rights and protections under the law. 

As noted, if you can prove that another party’s negligence resulted in your injuries, you may have the right to recover for a host of damages. Yet, proving negligence without a lawyer can be difficult. 

If you feel that you have been injured on the job due to the negligence of another, the sooner you contact our lawyers, the sooner we can begin to investigate your claim, gather and secure evidence and build a strong claim for maximum compensation.
