The World Trade Center attacks of September 11, 2001 left many people with physical and emotional scars, as well as life threatening medical ailments. Many of the responders and survivors of these attacks have sustained serious, lifelong injuries and are unable to pay for the medical treatment they need and deserve.
The passing of the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act has made many people optimistic about the possibility that they may now receive compensation for their injuries. But what many victims do not realize is that they may not get the compensation they need and deserve without legal assistance.
Only a few medical conditions and ailments have been listed as being covered under the Zadroga Act, including asthma and some other respiratory ailments; however, the most tragic medical conditions, including cancer and more serious respiratory conditions, have not been scientifically linked to the Ground Zero toxins.
If you or someone you love has suffered serious injuries as a result of 9/11, you need to speak with a New York Zadroga Act attorney. You need someone who will fight for your rights to compensation.
