The List of Covered 9/11 Cancers and Conditions is Not Exclusive
There are a number of other 9/11-related cancers, diseases and medical conditions that are covered by the Zadroga Act – which was renamed the “Never Forget the Heroes: James Zadroga, Ray Pfeifer, and Luis Alvarez Permanent Authorization of the September 11 Victim Compensation Fund Act” – as well. If you are unsure if you have a condition that is covered by the VCF, or if you have any other questions about exercising your rights under the Zadroga Act, we encourage you to contact us for a FREE case review. Once we review your case, and if you prove to be eligible, we will place your claim on track to get you closer to receiving your VCF cancer payout.
Were You There?
If you were a first responder, a volunteer in the recovery efforts, a Wall Street area professional, a Downtown Manhattan office worker or resident, Downtown Manhattan student (Stuyvesant High School, Pace University, Borough of Manhattan Community College), or survivor of any kind who has been diagnosed with cancer – you may be eligible for VCF cancer payouts or other awards.
The 2019 Forecast of VCF Claims
As of July 2019, the Congressional Budget Office estimates that, in the next 10 years, 35,000 people will develop a 9/11 cancer. Studies have shown that individuals who were in the “Crash Site Area” between September 11, 2001 and May 30, 2002 are at an increased risk of being diagnosed with more than 70 different 9/11 cancer types and over a dozen breathing and digestive conditions and diseases. The 9/11 lawyers at Hansen & Rosasco, LLP have heard many stories and cases – too many – of how the aftermath of the September 11 attacks impacted the lives of many individuals and families. With 25 years of expertise in disability law, we are here to represent you, but most importantly – to support you.
Deadlines for Your September 11th Victim Compensation Fund Claim
The deadline for registering a claim under the Zadroga Act is tied to the date that your cancer or other 9/11-related illness was certified by the WTC Health Program or other governmental entity. The two-year deadline for you to register your VCF claim is not the date when you began feeling symptoms or were first diagnosed with a 9/11-related cancer. It is the date when the WTC Health Program “certifies” your cancer or disease as being 9/11-related. Even if you were diagnosed with cancer or some other common 9/11-related illness many years ago, you may still be eligible to file a claim with the Victim Compensation Fund.
Once you are diagnosed with a 9/11 cancer or other illness that is potentially related to the toxic dust released in the wake of the attacks on September 11, 2001, you generally have two years to register your claim with the Victim Compensation Fund. Registration is different from filing. While you have until December 18, 2020 to file your claim, you can only file if you registered before your deadline.
