NY Attorneys Handling Lawsuits Against Long Island Fire Departments And Negligent Third Parties

There are almost 200 professional and volunteer fire departments on Long Island, charged with protecting 7.6 million lives and billions of dollars in property. The success of these companies comes largely from the brave men and women who are willing to put themselves in harm’s way for the sake of their communities. So, when Long Island firefighters suffer on-the-job injuries, they deserve full, fair compensation. If you’ve suffered a serious injury and a negligent third party or your own fire department was at fault, you should consult a qualified attorney with experience in firefighter injury cases. Located in New York City, Barasch & McGarry represents firefighters from Nassau and Suffolk counties and throughout Long Island. We have a long history of success advocating for firefighter rights.

I want to personally thank you and your whole law firm collectively for the unwavering devotion and professionalism to not only me, but the entire fire dept. family. The compassion and deep concerns I experienced by each and every one of your staff can not measure my sincere appreciation. It rivals the dedication we have of honor and duty.

Were You Injured While Working For A Long Island Fire Department?

Our attorneys can evaluate whether you have a case against your Long Island fire department or another person or entity. Our firm manages personal injury claims for various firefighter injuries, such as:

  • Asbestos exposure
  • Asphyxiation or smoke inhalation
  • Burns
  • Chemical exposure
  • Electrocution
  • Eye injury
  • Fall/jump
  • Gas explosion
  • Hearing loss
  • Negligent death
  • Overexertion
  • Rapid fire spread
  • Struck by object
  • Structural collapse
  • Sudden heart attack or stroke
  • Vehicle accident

If a negligent act caused you or a firefighter you love to suffer a catastrophic injury or wrongful death, our proven trial lawyers will fight for the compensation you deserve.

Although workers’ compensation bars volunteer firefighters from suing their employer or negligent coworkers, cases arise where a third party is liable for negligence. Our personal injury attorneys can evaluate the circumstances of your injury to determine if a third-party lawsuit is viable.
