Zadroga Act & 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund Claims

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.

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

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.

I am now a process server.  I was a world trade center first responder working as an Emergency Medical Tecnician, for FDNY. I was represented by the great firm.

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.
