World Trade Center Lawyers Representing 9/11 Victims Since 2001

The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 changed the world forever. In addition to the almost 3000 people who died that tragic day, about 500,000 were exposed to toxic dust and fumes that has since led to the diagnosis of numerous cancers and other illnesses. The September 11th Victim Compensation Fund exists to compensate those who have suffered from cancer or many other illnesses since 9/11 after being exposed to the unprecedented level of thousands of cancer-causing toxins in the air for almost a whole year after the attacks.

Turley, Hansen & Partners, LLP helps 9/11 victims navigate and receive maximum compensation from the complex federal 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund. We help our clients obtain free lifetime 9/11 related medical care (including prescription coverage) under the World Trade Center Health Program. We also represent clients in their related Social Security disability and New York State workers’ compensation claims.

Are You Eligible for the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund?

If you were present in the NYC “9/11 crash site area” (generally lower Manhattan below Canal Street, with some additions) between 9/11/2001 and 5/30/2002, and you are now suffering from a qualifying medical condition (including one of over 70 types of cancer), there is a good chance that free lifetime healthcare and a tax-free cash award are available to you.

The experienced World Trade Center attorneys at Turley, Hansen & Partners, LLP have been representing 9/11 victims since 2001. Our attorneys have already helped more than 1,200 victims secure over $75 million in compensation for their losses from the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund.

We continue to actively represent clients in claims under the two programs established by the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Reauthorization Act (the “Zadroga Act”):

  • The September 11th Victim Compensation Fund
  • The World Trade Center Health Program

The September 11th Victim Compensation Fund provides tax-free financial compensation to 9/11 victims, including first responders (in NYC, the Pentagon and Shanksville, PA) and survivors, including NYC downtown area residents, downtown workers, students, and visitors) for pain and suffering, lost earnings, past medical expenses, and other benefits. Financial benefits and awards are also available for wrongful death due to a 9/11-related cancer or disease, including a large cash death benefit, funeral expenses, lost earnings, and additional compensation for surviving spouses and any children.

The World Trade Center Health Program provides victims and survivors with lifetime medical care, treatment, testing, and medications for all common 9/11 diseases and conditions, including over 70 types of common (and uncommon) cancers, digestive conditions, and breathing conditions such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) and many other conditions and diseases.

These two programs are specially intended to provide health care and compensation to individuals and families who suffered losses in the wake of the September 11th attacks. While the Victim Compensation Fund programs is slated to remain in existence until 2020 to account for the late onset of 9/11-related cancers and illnesses, there are strict claim filing deadlines before 2020 and victims must register their claims early to protect their rights to compensation.
