How Can We Help You? More About Todd J. Strier, NYC Personal Injury Attorney for Sanitation Workers
As a New York based personal injury attorney who has specialized in helping Sanitation Workers for more than 20 years, I know that NYC DSNY Sanitation Workers face these kinds of hazards on a daily basis. Serious foot injuries are all too common on the job. Being a NYC sanitation worker is a fast-paced, physically-demanding career where some workers are exposed to potentially dangerous situations on an almost daily basis. I have had the great honor of being the lawyer selected to represent many New York Sanitation Workers, Sanitation Supervisors, Sanitation Superintendents and Sanitation Police Officers who have been injured in Line of Duty (LODI) accidents and for other matters.
If you have been injured on the job, my law firm has the many years of experience and specialized expertise necessary to help you get the compensation you deserve. If you are a NYC Sanitation Employee (uniformed division) injured at work and the City of New York is responsible for your injuries, you have the right to maintain an action against the City of New York and keep your job. There are strict statutes of limitations, which must be followed, so it is suggested you call our office to discuss the facts of your case as soon as possible. To protect your case, be sure to collect vital information such as witness information and photographs of the defective condition or accident scene.
Please note: It is essential for those injured to protect their financial future including your hard-earned pensions by determining who is responsible for the accident and taking action immediately! It is critically important that you file a Notice of Claim within 90 days of the date of your LODI with the NYC Comptroller. My office can help with this process, as we have for many NYC DSNY employees and other NYC workers.
