In the metropolitan area, hundreds of thousands of sanitation workers, teachers, firefighters and law enforcement officers work hard and put their safety and lives on the line to serve the public, uphold the law, and keep New York safe, clean, and running smoothly.
These jobs are demanding and dangerous. Municipal employees often have accidents or incidents on the job that cause them personal injuries and jeopardize their ability to work and earn a living.
Often, municipal workers may be entitled to bring claims for monetary compensation against their employers and responsible third parties, including lost income, lost benefits, pensions, medical expenses and pain and suffering.
