Police Disability Claim Attorney

The New York City disability attorneys at Seelig Law Offices are dedicated to fighting for the rights of New York Police Department (NYPD) uniform members. As the former president of a law enforcement union and co-chair of the New York City Uniformed Forces Coalition, senior partner Philip Seelig knows that members of the police department are out on the street risking their lives to protect this great city and the people in it. If they are injured on the job, they are entitled to file for a disability pension. The New York City Administrative Code provides that Article II police officers who are physically or mentally incapacitated from employment, as a result of an injury sustained in the line of duty, may be entitled to disability pension. This is a lifetime benefit that is calculated by taking seventy-five percent of the officer’s final average salary. Recently hired officers have similar but less lucrative coverage.

Article II police officers are also covered under the Heart and Stroke Bills which create presumptions that disabling heart conditions and strokes are the result of the stresses of employment as a law enforcement officer. Police involved in the work at certain locations for a period of time after September 11, 2001, and who suffer from qualifying conditions are also covered under the World Trade Center Bill. All of these Bills provide a special pension benefit to police officers.

Not all work-related injuries qualify, therefore it is important to consult with an attorney to determine if you have a claim and, if so, to pursue one. The attorneys at the Seelig Law Offices can assist you in evaluating your injury and filing all of the necessary paperwork. They offer a free consultation and typically do not charge a legal fee unless you receive a three-quarters disability pension.
