Volunteer Firefighters and Ambulance Workers  

New York State Workers’ Compensation law covers all New York State volunteer firefighters and most New York State volunteer ambulance workers. Volunteer ambulance companies that are not under contract with New York State or a political subdivision (county, city, town, etc) are not required to have workers’ compensation insurance, but may provide optional coverage. 

If you are a volunteer firefighter or volunteer ambulance worker who has been injured or become ill in the line of duty, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. If you are unsure if your circumstance would be considered “in the line of duty”, you may call any of our offices to set up a free consultation and be advised on your rights. 

Feel free to contact the law offices of Gilbert, Blaszcyk & Milburn for a free consultation on your possible claim.
