It's not about us... it's about YOU.
Representing first responders and workers of every kind who reported to Ground Zero, the Pentagon, Shanksville, Fresh Kills or one of the other toxic contamination sites during the rescue, recovery and clean-up operations following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and Downtown Manhattan civilian survivors of the toxic exposure, before the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund.
Diligent and dedicated.
At Turken, Heath & McCauley, LLP, our goal and mission is to assure that every person who was exposed to toxins at one of the 9/11 sites is enrolled at no cost in the World Trade Center Health Program (for both monitoring and treatment), and that every one of our clients maintaining a claim before the September 11th Victims’ Compensation Fund — including first responders and other workers exposed at Ground Zero, the Pentagon, Shanksville, Fresh Kills, or other recognized contamination sites during the rescue, recovery and clean-up operations following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and civilian survivors who lived or worked in the designated zone of lower Manhattan during some portion of that time and are now afflicted with a 9/11-related illness or condition — receives sensitive and timely personal attention from our attorneys and staff, including the thorough and thoughtful preparation of every claim in pursuit of the greatest award to which each 9/11 victim is entitled under the program.
September 11th Victim Compensation Fund
The September 11th Victim Compensation Fund is a federal government program established by an Act of Congress and administered by the U.S. Department of Justice, the purpose of which is to provide just compensation—without the need for litigation—to first responders, members of the various trades, investigators, and anyone else who worked at one of the recognized 9/11 attack or toxic exposure sites after the horrendous terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, including during the months-long period of the clean-up, as well as civilian survivors who were exposed to many of the same toxins simply by having lived or worked in the area, and were then diagnosed with one or more of the qualifying illnesses identified by the program.
