The 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund
The United States Government reenacted programs for World-Trade Center-related cancer and autoimmune disease compensation. There are billions in funds available; were you below Canal Street for any period of time between 9/11/01 and 5/30/02? You may qualify to participate as the VCF was created to provide compensation for any person (or a personal representative of a deceased individual) who suffered physical harm or was killed as a result of the terrorist-related aircraft crashes of 9/11/01. This includes first responders, residents, students, visitors,volunteers and office workers.
Experienced World Trade Center Lawyers
Our firm successfully obtained over $1 billion for over 13,000 rescue and recovery workers who became ill or injured during the rescue, recovery and debris-removal activities at the World Trade Center site. Paul Napoli was the court-appointed Plaintiffs’ Liaison Counsel who helped negotiate this historic settlement.
Paul also lobbied New York State and U.S. Congress for and was instrumental in obtaining two important pieces of legislation to assist WTC-injured workers. These are an amendment to New York’s General Municipal Law §50-I (“JIMMY NOLAN’S LAW”) that provided a one-year savings statute for otherwise time-barred first responder claims and the original JAMES ZADROGA 9/11 HEALTH AND COMPENSATION ACT OF 2010 (“Zadroga Bill”).
