9/11 Victim Compensation and Benefits
On September 11, 2001, America was hit with one of the worst terrorist attacks in history. We are still coming to terms with the destruction that was caused at the Pentagon in Virginia, the crash site of Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, the Twin Towers in Lower Manhattan and throughout NYC. Toxic gases, dust, and other debris affected not only the survivors at Ground Zero in New York City, but also the thousands of people who came in as first responders and clean-up crews. Other survivors included those who worked, went to school, were hospitalized or lived in the area as well as those who lived and worked near the Staten Island Fresh Kill Landfill where 200,000 tons of debris were brought in and disposed.
In the years since 9/11 survivors have developed cancers, respiratory illnesses, medical problems with their skin, eyes, sinuses, cardiovascular disease, anxiety, deafness and a host of other medical problems. If you or a loved one were present on that fateful day or in the area between September 11, 2001 – May 30, 2002 you may be eligible for financial compensation through the WTC Compensation Fund. The WTC Compensation Fund better known as the Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) is part of the James Zadroga 911 Health and Compensation Act which was enacted to benefit brave Americans like yourself.

What Health Conditions are Covered?
The 9/11 terrorist attacks created more victims in the years after the attack than it did on the day of the actual event. Since September of 2001 thousands of people were continually exposed to toxic smoke inhalation, toxic dust and debris coming from the contaminated zones. Many of these victims unknowingly exposed family members and loved one. They suffer from a multitude of illnesses and health symptoms which include, among others, hearing loss, adult and childhood cancers, leukemia, acute traumatic injury, respiratory issues, aerodigestive disorders, mesothelioma, lung disease reflux as well as other WTC related health conditions.
