Firefighters, especially members of the FDNY and volunteers, are exposed to hazardous situations every day. It is a dangerous job, but that does not mean you have to accept risks as “part of the job.” You willingly put your life on the line for the safety and protection of others, and there are laws there to protect you in the event you are injured.
Firefighters are injured in the line-of-duty by the careless, reckless, or negligent acts of others, or the violation or a statute, rule or City ordinance. You may be entitled to financial compensation for line-of-duty injuries, in addition to pension, disability, and continued wage payments.
At O’Hare Parnagian, we are dedicated to helping injured firefighters and their families. We know the difficulties families face when they are forced to survive financially on base pay without overtime and outside income. You may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering and other losses. Our experienced attorneys will thoroughly investigate your claim, build the strongest case possible, and hold all responsible parties accountable.
Because the law limits the time within which you or your family can bring a claim, you should contact us to investigate your case. Sometimes the law requires that you take immediate action to protect your rights.
