— How do you file a claim?
— What is needed to prove your "damages" and "pain and suffering"?
— Who is the "Special Master?"
— How much money can you expect to receive?
— Can you file if you already collected money from the old VCF and other lawsuits?
— How long will the claims process take?
The James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010, or the Zadroga Act, is named after James Zadroga, a New York City police detective who died in 2006 from respiratory disease as the result of inhaling toxins while working at Ground Zero. The law calls for $2.8 billion in funding for the VCF, which is expected to be reopened this summer.
System requirements for PC-based attendees include having a Windows 7, Vista, XP or 2003 server. For Macintosh-based attendees, Mac OS X 10.4.11 (Tiger) or newer is required.
"I urge anyone who was at Ground Zero and their loved ones to join us for this lively, interactive online seminar to get the answers you need to protect yourself and get the financial compensation you deserve," Mr. Rosasco said.
