9/11 Zadroga Act Victim Compensation Fund Claims

Chet Lukaszewski has dedicated himself to representing 9/11 first responders at the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund since the passage of the James Zadroga Health and Compensation Act in 2010. Most claims for compensation today involve first responders or survivors diagnosed with cancer and/or respiratory problems.

The James Zadroga Act was reauthorized in 2015 and 2019 and now has over $10 billion available to 9/11 responders and other survivors for both healthcare and compensation. The Fund will remain open for compensation awards and healthcare benefits until 2090.

James Zadroga was a New York City Police Department (NYPD) Detective who died of a severe respiratory disease that was attributed to his over 400 hours of participation in rescue and recovery operations in the rubble of the World Trade Center following the September 11th attacks. Zadroga was the first NYPD officer whose death was attributed to exposure to his contact with toxic chemicals and debris at the attack site. His death spurred an urgent need to re-open the original 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund to take care of the hero first responders.
