Ground Zero Worker Daniel Arrigo Waits for Workers' Comp – Rosasco Says Sadly Familiar in Workers' Comp Central Article

Monday, May 11, 2009

Last week the New York Daily News had an excellent story by Heidi Evans detailing the battle 9/11 responder Daniel Arrigo has gone through to obtain his workers’ compensation benefits.  Here we are – nearly 8 years since the World Trade Center tragedy – and insurance companies are now  to fighting 9/11 workers comp claims harder than ever as the spotlight has shifted from terrorism to the economy.  Give the New York Daily News credit for keeping the spotlight shining bright on the health of  WTC first responders and volunteers.
