Compensation and Care for 9/11 Volunteers
The 9/11 attacks resulted in a massive nationwide response by volunteers. These included local volunteers, firefighters, EMTs, police officers, members of the Red Cross and Salvation Army, doctors, pastors and other clergy, church groups, and so many others who helped with the rescue, recovery, and cleanup. Additionally, many volunteers provided support, such as feeding other rescue and recovery workers and assisting in the WTC cleanup efforts. These volunteers sacrificed their safety and health to help others in the days, weeks, and months after the attacks.
If you were a 9/11 volunteer of any kind and helped at any time, and unfortunately became ill due to being exposed to the toxins at Ground Zero – you have the right to compensation.
We represented and won $1.15 million in Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) payments for a 9/11 volunteer firefighter and truck driver.
This 9/11 volunteer became disabled by prostate cancer, urinary incontinence, impotence, thyroid cancer, and extrinsic asthma – all due to his heroic act of being a 9/11 volunteer at Ground Zero. We were able to have his health conditions certified for treatment in the WTC Health Program. This allowed him to get free lifetime cancer treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Many cases of 9/11 volunteers with similar conditions come through our office every day, and we are determined to get each eligible individual the VCF payments they deserve for the service and sacrifice they selflessly provided.
