Non-Uniform Disability Claim Attorney
The experienced New York City disability attorneys at Seelig Law Offices are committed to advocating for the rights of non-uniform civil service members. While police officers, firefighters, corrections officers and emergency medical technicians (EMTs) are considered uniform civil service members, New York state and New York City are home to thousands of other dedicated civil servants. These people provide our water, plow our roads and work for a variety of other city and state departments. If one of these workers is injured on or off the job, he or she may be eligible for a disability pension.
The New York State Retirement Law generally categorizes non-uniform civil servants into two categories. The two categories are those who have been in service for 10 years or more and are unable to work, and those who have been in service for less than 10 years and who are unable to work due to an employment-related injury. Members of both groups may be entitled to a lifetime disability pension. Eligibility for a disability pension is subject to certain restrictions and not all injuries qualify. That is why it is in your best interest to consult with a seasoned attorney who can evaluate your case and handle the filing of your claim if one is appropriate.
Our disability attorneys at Seelig Law Offices have represented non-uniform civil service members that were injured on the job for years and have achieved great results. We offer a free consultation and do not charge a fee unless the member receives a disability pension.
