If you were among the responders at the World Trade Center (WTC) and other related sites located in New York City, the Pentagon, or Shanksville, Pennsylvania, it is important to learn more about the WTC Health Program and how it might be able to provide you with benefits. Survivors in New York City also may be eligible for benefits. The WTC Health Program is governed by the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010 and the Reauthorization Act of 2015. The law provides protections and services to individuals who have been impacted directly by the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and the Zadroga Act also importantly established the WTC Health Program.
The WTC Health Program has many different features, and it is important to understand whether you may be eligible for services. If you have questions, an experienced World Trade Center attorney at the law offices of Napoli Shkolnik PLLC can assist you.
