Chet Lukaszewski, Esq. one of our Zadroga Claim Lawyer Partners, appeared on the Fox News’ Good Day New York program this week with Jacki Kaht Fernandez, widow of 9/11 hero, FDNY Lt. Cruz Fernandez, who died of a heart condition related to his service at Ground Zero.
As reported here earlier, Chet won a groundbreaking Court victory for all NYC Firefighters who are fighting for WTC related disability pensions. The Court told New York City that they did an inadequate job of evaluating the evidence in this medically complex case. Mr. Lukaszewski did his homework and lined up the proper expert testimony to establish that Lt. Fernandez’ lung condition contributed to his heart condition and subsequent death.
It is exactly this type of hard work and determination that Zadroga Victim Compensation Fund Attorneys will have to expend to maximize their client’s financial awards for those with the most serious Ground Zero illnesses and injuries. We are lucky to have lawyers with Chet’s skills on our team.
