Zadroga Act & 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund Claims Federal Victim Compensation Fund, Zadroga Act, 9/11 Victims Lawyers - Westchester County and White Plains, New York

Following the events of the World Trade Center (WTC) September 11, 2001 events, the White Plains accident attorneys at Worby Vecchio Edelman undertook representation of over 9,000 rescue, recovery and clean-up workers who did not hesitate in their response to the Ground Zero area in the aftermath of that tragic day. Our law firm fought to obtain necessary compensation for those police officers, firefighters, construction workers and office cleaners who worked so hard to rescue the wounded, recover those lost, and get New York, and our country, back on its feet. Our litigation efforts resulted in recovery of nearly $1 Billion dollars for those workers who were diagnosed with various types of 9/11 related cancers, severe and debilitating respiratory illnesses, and other significant 9/11 injuries due to their exposure to the toxins at Ground Zero.

We led the charge for over 9,000 sick 9/11 rescue and recovery workers.

Our Role Continues in Helping 9/11 Victims

Our efforts in representing the seriously ill 9/11 victims as a result of their toxic exposure at Ground Zero continue.  Unlike the initial Victim Compensation Fund, which operated until 2004, this iteration of the Fund, as reauthorized by the Zadroga Act, permits recovery by those individuals who not only participated in rescue and recovery operations, but also for anyone who lived, worked, or attended school in the New York City Exposure Zone (defined as any area south of Canal Street) between September 11, 2001 and May 30, 2002.  If you or a loved one were diagnosed with a cancer or a significant respiratory illness which you believe might be related to toxic exposure in Lower Manhattan during this time period -- or if a relative died under these circumstances – contact the White Plains 9/11 Victims (VCF) lawyers at Worby Vecchio Edelman immediately for a free consultation. 

Our 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund Lawyers Can Help

The Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) is accepting completed claims until December 18, 2020, and like any other claim for injuries, there are specific claim filing deadlines, and eligibility requirements, which must be met in order to qualify for compensation. 

Please contact the attorneys at Worby Vecchio Edelman for a free consultation so that we may help you navigate the Zadroga (VCF) process. (914) 686-3700
