THE VICTIM COMPENSATION FUND

On January 2, 2011, President Obama signed the Zadroga Act, which reopened the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) of 2001. The Zadroga Act expanded the scope of the VCF to provide compensation to more victims of the terrorist attacks and the aftermath. The Zadroga Act requires those who choose VCF compensation to waive their rights to pursue further litigation for damages resulting from the September 11th attacks. The Zadroga Act authorizes claims from persons present at the crash sites between September 11, 2001 and May 30, 2002. It permits claims from those who suffered physical harm or the wrongful death of a loved one as a result of the crashes or the debris removal. However, you must submit your claim within two years of the date you become aware of the physical injury or wrongful death, so if you qualify (or if you aren’t certain whether you qualify), contact our law firm to speak with one of our Bronx 9/11 compensation attorneys  in a free case consultation.
