The September 11 Victim Compensation Fund has been extended for five years (until 2020) and fully funded, allowing cancer victims exposed to dust, debris and fumes in the months following the 9/11 terrorist attacks to obtain financial compensation for their injuries, medical expenses and lost wages.
With the extension of the Fund, victims typically have two years from the date of their cancer diagnosis to file a claim. Filing a claim within the two-year time limit is very important, because untimely claimants can be denied compensation.
The 9/11 Fund, offers financial awards for hundreds of different cancers, including common cancers such as prostate and lung neoplasms. Awards for pain and suffering alons can reach $250,000, and the Fund can also award compensation for lost earnings and pension benefits, as well as losses due to the death of a victim.
Downtown residents, workers and responders should learn whether they are entitled to compensation for their injuries.
