A history of dedication to expanding the rights of injured responders
Throughout our firm’s history, we have fought to expand the rights of firefighters, police and other municipal employees to receive full compensation for job-related injuries and occupational illnesses. We are in the forefront of the fight to win benefits for firefighters who’ve suffered hearing loss due to exposure to sirens, explosions and other occupational risks. Because service to FDNY personnel is such a large part of our practice, we maintain a separate website dedicated to firefighter issues.
Our work advocating for responders suffering post-9/11 illnesses contributed to the passage of The James L. Zadroga 9/11 Health & Compensation Act of 2011. The law, named after our client, an NYPD detective who developed a fatal illness after serving at Ground Zero, established the World Trade Center Health Program and the September 11 Victim’s Compensation Fund. We also maintain a separate website for our work on post-9/11 injury issues.
