Cops & Their Personal Injury Rights
Mike Dyer, Attorney At Law and retired NYPD himself, speaks to law enforcement officers about personal injury law and their legal rights and procedures if they are injured in the course of their duty. Mike combines his personal perspectives as an NYPD officer for 4 years and trained attorney for over 25 years having represented hundreds of injured cops, their families and their survivors as he explains options and resources available to cops regarding personal injury, insurance and the law. Mike has spoken many times at the Nebraska Fraternal Order of Police bi-annual conference, to FOP lodges throughout Nebraska, to a number of NYPD rollcalls, and to various groups of police officers, deputy sheriffs and troopers. The message is clear, a line of duty injury is not part of the job, and an injured cop has the same rights as every other citizen. One consistent response that gets made after a presentation is not knowing about being able to potentially use the cop’s own car insurance if involved in a line of duty MVA.
