Cleanup Workers

Compensation and Care for 9/11 Cleanup Workers

The days and months after the September 11, 2001 attacks were a time of true horror; a time when many worked or volunteered to aid in the Ground Zero cleanup and recovery of the Ground Zero “Crash Site Area” which encompassed the streets and hundreds of buildings throughout Lower Manhattan.

These cleanup and recovery workers still suffer from having breathed the toxic fumes, a high volume of asbestos exposure, and other 9/11 dust that covered New York City buildings and streets. 

These workers and volunteers braved this dark cloud to help in any way they could – and at the sacrifice of their own health and safety.

WTC Dust and Asbestos Exposure

Cleanup Workers are Eligible for Compensation

Ground Zero cleanup and recovery workers are eligible for payouts from the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund (VCF). We continue to see a huge increase in 9/11 cancer cases and breathing/digestion problems in cleanup and recovery workers due to their direct asbestos exposure and inhalation and ingestion of other harmful toxins. 

There are financial awards available through the VCF as well as lifetime medical care through the WTC Health Program.

The lawyers at Hansen & Rosasco, LLP are here to guide those suffering from a 9/11-related illness through every step of both of these complicated federal programs.
