Sanitation Accidents Can Be Dangerous

Many people don’t realize how dangerous sanitation equipment can be to vehicle drivers and pedestrians, and even the sanitation employees.

Employees at the Department of Sanitation New York (DSNY) provide an essential service that protects our health and welfare, but they also do a dangerous job which can result in:

  • Crush injury by hopper
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Trip and fall during their route
  • Trip and fall in garage
  • Slip and fall in garage
  • Defective trucks
  • Fall off truck
  • Broken steps
  • Failure to repair downed vehicle timeously
  • Defects on garage floors that cause injuries
  • Exposure to hazardous material
  • Being struck by civilian vehicles
  • Leaks in garages that result in slip hazards
  • Being run over by their own truck

If you are a New York Sanitation Police Office, Superintendent, Supervisor, or Worker that has been injured on the job, you should contact one of our lawyers who will fight for the compensation you deserve.

As an employee of NYC Sanitation, you may be able to bring a lawsuit against anyone who may have caused your injury, and that includes the City of New York. However, you need to file a Notice of Claim within 90 days of the date of your accident with the NYC Comptroller. We can help you with the procedure.

Protect Your Financial Future

It is essential that you protect your financial future if you have been injured, especially your pension. That means you need to take action immediately.

You may also be eligible for an ordinary disability from NYCERS or an accident disability pension. There are a couple of different kinds of pensions, so we will help you to understand the rules and regulations regarding filing deadlines as early on as possible. Depending on your case, you could be eligible for a ¾ accident disability pension which is tax-free.

If you work in the uniformed division of NYC Sanitation, and have been injured at work and find that the City of New York is responsible for your injures, you may be able to take action against the City and still keep your job.

NYC imposes strict statues of limitations which need to be followed. That’s why you need an experienced legal expert on your side.

Focused on Your Recovery

    • Brain Damaged Child $50 Million

      A four-year-old boy was brought to the hospital for a routine eyelid repair. To cut costs, the hospital contracted out its anesthesia services to a third-party corporation.

    • Wrongful Death $21.5 Million

      This accident occurred in the Bronx when our client was working on a sanitation truck. The driver lost control while making a turn. Our client was ejected and the truck ran over his leg.

    • Pedestrian Injury $10.3 Million

      A 22-year-old theater intern was walking across the intersection of 42nd Street and Ninth Avenue in Manhattan when she was struck by the rear door of a passing truck which had flown open because it had been improperly secured by the driver.
