Nassau Lawyer Publishes Article on Denied VCF Claims

February 10, 2020

Source: Nassau Lawyer

On July 29, 2019, President Trump ratified the Never Forget the Heroes: James Zadroga, Ray Pfeifer, and Luis Alvarez Permanent Authorization of the September 11th Victims Compensation Fund (hereinafter, “VCF”). However, there are a group of 9/11 survivors that are being unfairly denied compensation under this statute and those are victims who have been diagnosed with endometrial cancer. Unfortunately, the process of filing a claim with the VCF includes a general waiver against any future litigation remedies seeking compensatory damages for 9/11 related injuries.This general waiver operates as a trapdoor that traps denied 9/11 claimants with endometrial cancer in a situation where they are left injured with no hope for restitution.
