Emergency Responder Injury Attorney
COVID-19 is currently impacting our world in ways we’ve never seen before. Billions of people across the planet are sheltering in their homes to avoid exposure to the novel coronavirus. But a large group of professionals does not have the luxury of avoiding possible exposure to COVID-19 and other risks: our first responders.
There are an estimated 890,000 emergency medical service (EMS) professionals in the U.S., according to the American Security Council Foundation. That figure does not include our estimated 800,000 police officers, 1.13 million firefighters, 1.3 million active-duty armed forces, tens of thousands of reservists and National Guard personnel, and countless volunteers.
Every time these individuals scramble an emergency response, they put themselves at risk of more than just acquiring a potentially deadly disease. They also risk being involved in car accidents, falling victim to acts of violence, or being involved in other accidents capable of causing a serious injury.
TonaLaw is here and ready to serve the people of Long Island who tirelessly and selflessly serve us: our local first responders.
If you have been involved in a car accident or sustained any other injury during the course of duty, we can help you assert your legal rights to seek the maximum amount of compensation for all of your injury or sickness-related losses. We will provide you with a Long Island emergency responder accident lawyer to examine the details of your case, help you build a claim, and guide you towards the optimal strategy for seeking reasonable compensation.
The laws dictating what happens when a first responder gets injured or sick can be complex, and workers’ compensation is often just one source of financial recovery. We work closely with you, examining all of the details of your case, to identify all potentially liable parties and sources of injury compensation. With our help, you can fight vigorously for the payment you deserve in order to cover the costs of your injury losses.

Long Island EMT Accident Lawyer
The American Security Council Foundation estimates that there are 600,000 EMTs in the U.S. as a whole.
EMTs are currently on the front lines of New York’s ongoing COVID-19 crisis. At one point, the rate of hospitalizations for COVID-19 patients in New York was growing by 20% each day.
Since then, that growth rate has, mercifully, calmed down, but EMTs are still in extreme demand. They must evaluate individuals who are experiencing serious respiratory symptoms. They must also stabilize and transport these individuals to the nearest available care facility — sometimes with unclear instructions on what facility is currently best-equipped to handle the new patient.
During the course of their duties, EMTs risk car accidents, being struck on foot, hit-and-runs, acts of violence, and other threats to their health and safety.
TonaLaw is here to help you file an injury claim against all liable parties, increasing the chances that you will receive the compensation you need to cover your injury costs. Whether you are the victim of an unintentional car accident or an intentional act of violence, we help ensure that you can seek compensation — especially in situations where workers’ comp may exempt coverage or provides limited options for recovery. Often, in addition to workers’ compensation, you may be entitled to monies from other sources.
Long Island Paramedic Injury Lawyer
Paramedics face extreme pressure on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis. They must make split-second decisions on patient care, and they are expected to handle more calls than ever before at a frightening volume.
In the midst of all this stress, there is the possibility that a paramedic in Long Island could be injured, attacked, or experience an accident that causes them to injure themselves during the course of duty.
Whether dealing with sickness or a physical injury, workers’ compensation can often, unfortunately, avoid paying the full amount of coverage needed. The insurer may allege that the incident is excluded under the policy, or they could argue that the injury did not technically occur within the “scope of employment.”
TonaLaw is here to help paramedics examine their legal options and pursue an injury claim against all liable parties. We want to ensure that our brave paramedics aren’t left on the hook for medical treatment costs and other damages as a result of a claim denial. With our help, you can pursue the maximum amount of compensation available from at-fault drivers’ liability insurance and other sources of economic restitution.
Long Island Police Accident Attorney
Our brave law enforcement officers help keep Long Island safe, and they are tasked with more responsibility than ever before to help manage, protect, and serve communities during the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.
Police officers are, unfortunately, not always fully protected from the risks of violence, sickness, car accidents, or other injury-causing situations. Workers’ compensation and union insurance may attempt to make exemptions or deny coverage for certain injuries inflicted in the line of duty — including contraction of the novel coronavirus.
If you are a Long Island police officer (or other individual involved in law enforcement) and you have sustained losses after getting hurt or sick, TonaLaw can provide you with a police officer accident lawyer in Long Island to examine your case, identify all potential sources of compensation, and fight back against insurers that want to deny you coverage.
Long Island Firefighters’ Injury Lawyer
New York depends on its firefighters to keep one of the densest and oldest communities on the planet safe. Without the service of our local firefighters in the City and across Long Island, many of the historical buildings and communities that make our region what it is would have been ravaged by fires decades ago.
During this time of crisis, our firefighters are being put on the front lines to assist medical care providers, police officers, local officials, and other members of our community. They are being asked to perform duties that create even more risk to their health and safety than a four-alarm fire in the Bronx.
Firefighters who acquire an illness or an injury in the line of atypical duties may find it difficult to recover the full amount of damages needed to repay their medical bills, cover lost wages, or manage other accident-related losses.
Whether you have been hurt in a car accident, injured in the line of duty, or have acquired COVID-19 during the course of emergency operations, TonaLaw can provide you with a Long Island firefighters’ injury attorney to help you seek remediation from all available sources.
Because workers’ compensation policies are complex and firefighters are doing things not typical of their duties, they may need legal representation from experienced personal injury attorneys. Appointing a lawyer can help them identify who may be liable for their costs, and we can assist you if your claim has been partially or wholly denied by insurers.
Active Duty Military and Reservists’ Accident Lawyer in Long Island
During this unprecedented crisis, our military, reservists, and National Guard have been mobilized to assist. All of this activity places our military personnel in just as much danger as being in the line of fire during an open armed conflict. The risk of acquiring COVID-19 or being involved in a car accident is great, and the insurance available to personnel may not always honor the full costs of a claim.
TonaLaw can help you examine your available insurance options while also identifying other parties who may be liable. We can help you pursue a claim against an at-fault driver’s insurance or any other parties who may be held legally responsible for the costs of your injury or illness.
