9/11 Events at World Trade Center

download 9-11 media kitNEWS & UPDATES:


September 11, 2001 is a day that stands out in Americans’ hearts and minds as one of the most tragic in history. Nearly 3,000 people died on that fatal day, and the ramifications of 9/11 are still being felt by many living now; hundreds of people who were near the World Trade Center site, worked or lived in the area afterwards, or acted as Ground Zero first responders were exposed to pollution and toxic dust. As such, these people are suffering from respiratory illnesses and cancers. If you were present at a 9/11 crash site at the time of attack or in the immediate aftermath thereafter, and if you are suffering from a disease or health condition as a direct result of your proximity to the crash site, you may be an eligible claimant for compensation.

The Victim Compensation Fund & The James Zadroga Act

The James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act allocated approximately $4.2 billion to create the World Trade Center Health Program. The act also expanded the Victim Compensation Fund of 2001, allowing victims of the 9/11 attacks to obtain compensation for injuries. Anyone who was present at the crash sites at the time of attack, or immediately thereafter (between September 11, 2001 and May 30, 2002), and suffered physical harm as a direct result of the crash or debris, may file a claim for benefits.
