The experienced World Trade Center attorneys at Turley, Hansen & Rosasco, LLP have been representing 9/11 victims since 2001. Our attorneys have already helped more than 1,600 victims secure over $100 million in compensation for their losses from the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund.

We continue to actively represent clients in claims under the two programs established by the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Reauthorization Act (the “Zadroga Act”):

  • The September 11th Victim Compensation Fund
  • The World Trade Center Health Program

 

What is the Victim Compensation Fund?

The September 11th Victim Compensation Fund provides tax-free financial compensation to 9/11 victims, including first responders (in NYC, the Pentagon and Shanksville, PA) and survivors, including NYC downtown area residents, downtown workers, students, and visitors) for pain and suffering, lost earnings, past medical expenses, and other benefits. Financial benefits and awards are also available for wrongful death due to a 9/11-related cancer or disease, including a large cash death benefit, funeral expenses, lost earnings, and additional compensation for surviving spouses and any children.

The World Trade Center Health Program provides victims and survivors with lifetime medical care, treatment, testing, and medications for all common 9/11 diseases and conditions, including over 70 types of common (and uncommon) cancers, digestive conditions, and breathing conditions such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) and many other conditions and diseases.

These two programs are specially intended to provide health care and compensation to individuals and families who suffered losses in the wake of the September 11th attacks. While the Victim Compensation Fund programs is slated to remain in existence until 2020 to account for the late onset of 9/11-related cancers and illnesses, there are strict claim filing deadlines before 2020 and victims must register their claims early to protect their rights to compensation. Don’t miss out on your rightful damages. Contact a 9/11 lawyer now to see if you qualify.

Full-Service Representation for
9/11 Victims and Families

In addition to handling Victim Compensation Fund claims under the Zadroga Act, Turley Hansen & Rosasco is the only major 9/11 law firm to also directly handle victims’ claims for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits and workers’ compensation. There are important benefits to coordinating all of your 9/11-related claims, and these benefits will not be realized if another 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund law firm refers your workers’ compensation and SSD claims to outside law firms. Our senior attorneys have decades of experience in New York State workers’ compensation and SSD matters, and we use a comprehensive claim strategy designed to maximize all our clients’ financial recoveries.

At Turley Hansen & Rosasco, each new and existing client can meet or speak to a Senior Partner of our firm who has over 25 years of experience representing injured and disabled clients. Our attorneys began representing 9/11 victims and their families in October of 2001. While some law firms came late to representing 9/11 victims in compensation claims, we have been supporting the 9/11 community from the beginning.
