Were You There? Residents and Downtown Workers Eligible for 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund and Free Health Benefits

NYC 9/11 “Crash Site Area”

If you lived or worked in any job in lower Manhattan below Canal Street (see map above)  between 9/11/2001 and 5/30/2002 and have either cancer or a respiratory illness, you may be eligible for free 100% paid health insurance for life and a tax-free cash award from the federal 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund

Unfortunately, every day more and more downtown office workers and professionals, downtown residents and first responders in the Ground Zero area are being diagnosed with 9/11 related cancers or respiratory illnesses (such as COPD, interstitial lung disease, WTC cough, RADS  and asthma).

The first step in the process to find out if you have a claim should be to contact an experienced 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund claim lawyer who can screen your individual facts to see if you are eligible for health care and cash benefits. Health care benefits through the World Center Health Program can allow you receive medical care from some of the top doctors and hospitals in the country, including facilities such as Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and many others. Cash compensation benefits  can include lost earnings if you are unable to work due to your 9/11 illnesses or injury and pain & suffering damages.

A good 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund attorney should help you obtain the sworn witness statements you will need to prove that you were in downtown Manhattan between 9/11/2001 and 5/30/2002. In addition, a good 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund lawyer should help you obtain the medical records necessary to prove that your 9/11 cancer or respiratory condition is related to your exposure to the dust and deadly toxins that covered lower Manhattan for months afterward.
