Judge blisters FDNY Medical Board for denying WTC disability pension

Last month, Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Devin P. Cohen ruled that the FDNY Medical Board’s rejection of the disability claim of retired Firefighter Scott Gaffney was “not supported by credible evidence” and ignored basic occupational requirements of firefighting writes Bob Hennelly for the Chief-Leader.

While Gaffney was put on World Trade Center-related medical leave; his disability claims were repeatedly rejected, a not uncommon situation.

Experts in World Trade Center disability law say that this case may provide precedents that will prove important to similar claims in future.
