Turley Hansen & Partners, LLP Represents Claimants before the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund – Period.
We are the only law firm in the nation that focuses solely on representing victims and first responders for their 9/11 related illnesses – and our attorneys were with you and your families from the beginning. Three weeks after September 11th, 2001, Turley Hansen partner Troy Rosasco received a call from a widow who lost her husband when the Towers came down. He took her case and represented her and her children for free. The family got all the compensation they rightfully deserved.
Fast forward 15 years and our 9/11 attorneys are still representing victims and first responders. Many suffer with 9/11 illnesses including cancer, breathing, digestive and psychological problems. Turley Hansen actively fought with our friends in the 9/11 community for passage of the James Zadroga 9/11 Reauthorization Act of 2015.
Since the passage of the original Zadroga Act in 2010, Turley Hansen has recovered over $75 million for over 1200 clients from the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund. Reasonable Attorney Fees are capped by the federal government at 10% of your final award. Fees are payable at the end of the case only. There is no fee if we do not obtain a financial award for you from the Fund.
The 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund re-opened on August 1, 2016 for new claims after the passage of the Zadroga Reauthorization Act. Filing a 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund claim can be difficult and often requires legal strategy. Over 80% of all 9/11 victims choose to have an attorney or law firm represent them before the Fund.
