There are currently a number of laws in place designed to provide compensation to 9/11 victims and their families, but those laws have not always been so expansive. Indeed, the World Trade Center (WTC) Health Program only recently added to its list of covered diseases and illnesses, helping to ensure that 9/11 victims who have suffered long-term consequences as a result of their rescue and recovery work can be eligible for the compensation they deserve. When the Director of the National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health and the Administrator of the WTC Health Program issued a new set of recommendations for expanding the list of covered illnesses, Paul J. Napoli, Of Counsel at the law offices of Napoli Shkolnik PLLC issued a statement:
“All of the employees of our firm are so thrilled to learn … that all of the suggested cancers identified for coverage should be included under the World Trade Center Health Program.” Paul J. Napoli previously lobbied New York State and the U.S. Congress to pass legislation to assist workers injured at the World Trade Center.
In addition to supporting programs that provide compensation for 9/11 victims and their families, we have also been proud to provide support for the New York City Police Department Pulaski Association, the New York City Police Museum, the Police Athletic League NYC, the September 11 Memorial and Museum, the 9/11 Memorial Benefit Dinner, and the exhibit “Memory Remains: 9/11 Artifacts at Hangar 17.” Paul J. Napoli also serves as a Board Member of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum.
