Police Officer Accidents
Were You Injured While On the Job?
New York City police officers put their life on the line daily in order to protect and serve the citizens of our city. While it is true that police officers take on many risks in their jobs each day, they do not expect to be injured due to defective buildings, equipment or violations of regulations. Any of these circumstances being present can cause a workplace injury which can greatly affect the ability of an officer to perform his duties effectively.
Jeffrey J. Shapiro & Associates have recovered significant damages for New York City police officers who have been injured in the line of duty. Each case is fact specific, so the only way in which you can be sure that your rights are fully protected is by contacting a New York personal injury lawyer and discussing your case directly with us.
Some examples of cases we have handled include:
- $500,000 settlement for a police officer who was injured because of violation of safety rules in a precinct
- Case in progress: Police officer injured in the line of duty due to a defective floor.
